What does SNM mean in texting? Acronyms are becoming increasingly common when texting youngsters.

What Does SNM Mean When A Girl Texts It To Me?

Usually, the acronym ‘SNM’ indicates that a person is telling you to “say no more.” When a girl says this, she has gotten all the details she needs and does not want you to explain any further.

Perhaps the topic is something she dislikes or is grossed out by, so she does not want to hear the rest of the story.

Other than someone understanding your point, they might also be irritated with the unnecessary elaboration, so SNM is used.

When a guy stops you in the middle of a discussion with ‘SNM,’ this may be his way of letting you know he doesn’t want to hear about it anymore.

You can then change the topic or ask why he’s upset over the details of the situation. 

Does SNM Mean The Same In Texting As It Does On Social Media?

If you posted something online and a person replies with ‘SNM’, they might be trying to indicate that they relate to what you said or understood your emphasis on a certain topic.

Through text, however, if a person goes out of their way to text you ‘SNM’ mid-text, they might be trying to divert the conversation away from something that triggers them or makes them uncomfortable.
