When in IRC chats there's the "/me" command to do your actions.
Just type it in like this: /me your action here, and it will print out your name and the action you just did.
Many of the abbreviations used in chats have pretty much become universal and a lot have become creatively humorous thanks to many regulars in those chat rooms.
The following abbreviations and their meanings are some of the most commonly used out there. SETE Smiling Ear To Ear SHID Slaps Head In Disgust SO Significant Other SWAK Sealed With A Kiss SWL Screaming with Laughter SYS See You Soon TA Thanks Again TOY Thinking Of You TTFN Ta Ta For Now TTYL Talk To you Later WB Welcome Back WTH What/Who The Heck YBS You'll Be Sorry YG Young Gentleman YL Young Lady YM Young Man ttyl talk to you later ttys talk to you soon tcob taking care of business ttfn ta ta for now Another thing that was previously mentioned is your text size and appearance.
For example, to ask someone a question you may want to use this format to do it and to talk to others the same way: Person's name: Your question Most of the time you will get someone's attention this way.
Considering that this relationship maybe over a long distance the chances of you meeting the other person are almost next to none.
But don't let this stop you from keeping in contact of each other.
Or if you want to do the asterix technique instead in an IRC chat you can do that also.
It depends on the person's preference of doing their actions.
