Hello,

Is there a thread that explains all the abbreviations used on the boards? I know BPD, but, n/c, pw, ss10? many others I haven't figured out.

Thanks!

I've noticed the term "gaslighting" used quite a bit on these pages, but there's no definition here. ?

Yes, you are right with your observation about the use and no definition. The term gaslight is not a official term, its more like armchair psychology and it stems from a stage play / movie.

Often the use of terms like gaslighting communicates less than more. Eg. Instead of "my ex gaslighted me" it's better to say, my ex lied about her age.

It means "Other significant other", in general.  It's not used here very often (11 times in 3 million posts).

Here are the last two uses (2011):
