Go Super to Listen Go Super!

Are you on Snapchat? What about Instagram? Facebook? Twitter? It seems like everyone is using social media these days! The most popular way to use these social websites is to post things about your life. For example, you might share a photo from your vacation, or you might write about how difficult your English test was. But what if you only want one person to see your message? For this, you can send a DM.

The abbreviation DM means direct message. A DM is a private message that you send to just one person or a small group of friends. This abbreviation is interesting because you can use it as a noun or a verb. You can DM someone, or you can send a DM. Actor Hailee Steinfeld heard a story about Keaton Jones. He is a young boy who was treated badly by other kids. To help him feel better, Hailee sent him a public message on social media. Then, she told him he could DM her and be her date for a night.

Who do you DM the most? What is the best DM you ever received?

Usually I send voice DM to my friends and family through WhatsApp and Viber. The best voice DM I received was 6 minutes long from my brother and funny thing, it was blank. I was in suspense that when he will speak, I was thinking he is giving me some kind of surprise but to my regrets it just happened in his pocket, without his permission. Haha

⚫DM 📩       ↔     ” Direct Massage 📩 ”

 📩  DM option is used to send a “Direct Massage ” or a ” Private Message ” in Social media . It’s the massage which you send to somebody or you receive it .

Nobody can see this massage other than you and the receiver)


 By the way :

كلمة ولو جبر خاطر 👄 ولا سلام من بعيد👋 ولا رسالة 📩 يا هاجر ✈

I WOULD LIKE TO SEND A DM FOR SOMEONE WHO MEANS TO ME A LOT  ! ( I know a DM must be so private❌👀❌but I have no choice !)

In Englishbaby or in other social media :


🔴Honestly , I can’t do anything ! When someone refuses to send me a DM or to  communicate with me, there is no way I can force her to communicate. 

Not to mention, I have to ask myself this : 
Why I would be interested in dating someone who treats me so badly?

My best bet is to move on. While that can be difficult and painful when I have feelings for someone, in time, the feelings will pass, I will find someone else and I will forget about her …

Dear Friend : I really can’t force YOU anymore to stay in your life. Staying is a choice so  I would like to be thankful for people who choose me in Ebaby

Anyway ..Have a nice life …I am done trying to be in your life .. 💔
