It's pronounced bee-eff-eff.I often refer to a good friend as
“my mate” but I think that’s probably unusual among grown women. I think we just use friend, I’ve certainly grown our of using the tag “best” for a friend. I’d definitely never use BFF (how do pronounce that?).
"BFF" started around 1996 and got into dictionaries in 2010. It became common in social networks (online chat) and in smartphone chat. So those of us who became adults before 1996, and who don't do a lot of text chatting, never started using BFF.Is there another expression used instead of best friend?
BFF always makes me think ~ very very reluctantly ~ of Paris Hilton ... and of hollow, empty, trite, insincere guff.I wonder what sort of woman uses these terms. Mindless wastes of skin, naming no names, although KK initials come to mind?
