1. What does GFY stand for?

Good for you

GFY stands for "good for you." This acronym is another way of saying "nice job," "great," or "way to go!"

While GFY is typically used in earnest, friends and frenemies alike may also use GFY sarcastically. For example, if you tell a friend "I was attacked by a giant octopus," and they send back "GFY," they most likely are not actually excited for you.

In other cases, GFY may be used to express jealousy. For example, if you are lucky enough to inherit some money, and you inform your less-financially-well-off friends, they may respond with a slightly jelly "GFY."


"You scored 92% on the final exam? Wow, GFY."
