The Growing Glossary of Dating Slang

If you're new to online dating, then I'm afraid there is whole new language with well over 250 terms for you to learn.

Particularly since the rise of the iKids, people have been far more open about their sexual preferences and desires, and this has generated a long glossary of new dating terms. Many sexual preferences are still abbreviated on dating sites, presumably with the idea that those who do not understand the term do not need to know it. That thinking does not help newcomers though. Here is the term you're looking for:

ASLP means "Age? Sex? Location? Picture?"

More Detail...

ASLP is an abbreviation commonly used on chat forums that facilitate 1-to-1 chat between strangers. For example:
  • Toni: ASLP?
  • Jordan: 12 Male Denver
  • Toni: Denver? My brother lives near there. He owns a pet shop.
  • Jordan: I'd love a dog.
As a quick way to establish whom you're talking to, ASLP can be an innocent prelude to an appropriate conversation. However, as the answers to ASLP could divulge potentially useful information to a predatory chat-forum user, the parents of young children should be aware of what ASLP means. ASLP is similar in meaning and use to ASL ("Age? Sex? Location?").

An Academic Look at ASLP

ASLP is an unusual initialism abbreviation because each letter represents a question. Even though ASLP plays the role of four interrogative statements (i.e., four questions), it is commonly seen without a question mark. In other words, it can be written "ASLP?" or "ASLP".
