So, you were texting your bestie and they used the new text term "mk" in a message. You've *literally* never seen this before and have no clue what it means. You don't want to seem like you live under a rock, so you sprint to Google in hopes of finding the definition. Could this be yet another word that's been added to the dictionary of text talk? It is. If you're wondering: What does "mk" mean in text? Here's a crash course on how to use it.

You read "mk" like, "mmm-kay." And it means exactly what it sounds like. "Mmm, okay." Although it's more often used with a judgmental or unsure tone, it all depends on context, which can be tricky to decipher via text.

Before you read it through a negative lens, here's "mk" used in two different ways:

A: Hey, I've really been craving Mexican food. Wanna get some for dinner?

B: I was craving Chinese, but mk."

A: We can get Chinese tomorrow.

B: Mk! 🤤

You can use "mk" when you're reluctantly agreeing to finally go out with your bestie instead of staying in bed and watching true crime documentaries, or when you're talking about something that you're just not interested in, but don't want to seem rude. Basically, "mk" is just another way to say "ok," so you can pretty much use them interchangeably. Just keep in mind that "mk" can come off as sarcastic, so be sure to include some clear context to avoid any accidental text arguments.

Aside from your texts with your BFF, you may have also seen "mk" on Snapchat, or in TikTok and Instagram comment sections. It can also be written spelled out like, "mkay."
