2. What does NC mean when discussing relationships on Reddit?

No Contact

In Reddit's relationship-related subreddits, NC stands for "No Contact." No Contact is a strategy some Redditors recommend for recovering from intense breakups, by having no post-breakup contact with former SOs.

According to r/relationship_thoughts' Guide to No Contact, NC "is intended to speed the healing process after a break. Its goal is to make you OK again, either by helping you to forget the other person forever, or to get over them enough to be their friend."

While cutting an ex out of your life entirely might sound simple, NC is complicated enough that it has spawned its own subreddits, including r/ExNoContact and r/nocontact. There, those who are going or have gone through the No Contact process can share their stories and support each other.

Example

"I've managed to have NC with him for three months now. I think I'm turning a corner."

4. What does NC stand for?

Not cool

NC is an acronym that stands for "not cool", which is another way to say that you don't approve of something a person said or did. It is typically seen online or in text messages.

The acronym may be used to disapprove of a variety of things, such as drinking out of the milk container, calling a person a vulgar name, or leaving the restaurant before the bill comes. The acronym is pretty obscure so you may just want to actually type out "not cool."

Example

"Hey man, that is nc!"
