The abbreviation is a very popular response amongst teens and adults when they text. It is not just limited to the textual world but is also used verbally while having a conversation too.

NVM, again has a lot of contexts when it comes to its practical usage.

The most common of it is when you for sure know that a particular conversation is going to get super awkward and unhealthy. The slang helps you to completely shit the topic to something entirely different (in the hope that the other person does not bring it up again!)

The other times, it acts as an escape route from weird people. There are times when you can’t tune in with other people, and their conversations make 0 sense. NVM acts like your shield and helps you sneak off.

It is also used in a lot of cases where a person is hurt but does not want the other person to know about it. This, in turn, helps to build a better relationship amongst people.


Example 1:

Person 1: Hey you were saying something in the break, I’m sorry, wasn’t paying attention.

Person 2: NVM, it wasn’t anything you need to worry about.


Example 2:

Person 1: BRO! do you know that giraffes don’t have stripes like zebras do!

Person 2: Uh! Dude NVM.
