GTG is a very authoritative term. Unlike XOXO, where you are conveying your regards or love for a person by ending it with that acronym, the case isn’t the same with GTG. This particular slang can mean a lot of different things in a lot of different contexts.

One way to use it is when you are normally asking for leave due to your work or just to spend some quality time. The other person does not need to know about your plans or engagements, and he or she isn’t entitled to it either. In this case, it shows your relationship with the person isn’t on a very personal level but is a good friend.

The other context is when you want to escape a weirdo or a conversation you aren’t willing to have. This is the case where you use GTG as a means to avoid that person even if it’s not for very long. You might come out strong (rude) when you use the acronym here.

Either way, as long as it shows you have to leave, it works right?
