Definition Bae Quotes Memes Tweets Internet Slang

Bae is a word I CANNOT stand. At one point, it seemed like everyone and their mother was using the word. And I’m going to assume you’ve probably heard of (and used) the word as well.

So, what does BAE mean?



Bae is an acronym that stands for Before Anyone Else. It’s used to describe a girlfriend, boyfriend, or anyone you’re romantically involved with. So, instead of saying “I’m hanging out with my boyfriend today,” someone might say instead “I’m hanging out with bae today.”

Get the idea?

It might seem kind of strange to some people, but it’s actually become a real word. Along with other popular online acronyms, bae can actually be found in the Oxford Dictionary.
