Question: What Is ‘HMU’? What Does HMU Mean?

Answer: ‘HMU’ is ‘Hit Me Up’. This acronym is used to say contact me, text me, phone me or otherwise reach me to follow up on this. It is a modern shorthand way to invite a person to communicate with you further.

History note: HMU ‘hits me up’ used to mean ‘that person asked me for something’, as in ‘David hits me up for a small loan every Friday night’.

This expression has now morphed to mean ‘communicate with me further’.

Spelling note: HMU can be spelled in all lowercase as ‘hmu’. Both lowercase and uppercase  versions mean the same thing, and you are welcome to use either. Just avoid typing entire sentences in uppercase, as that is considered rude shouting online.

Example of HMU usage:

  • Ronaldo: dude I really need to borrow your ID card
  • Messi: My ID card? What are you doing?
  • Ronaldo: intramural hockey. I need to show school ID before they will let me onto the ice
  • Messi: gotcha. K, HMU at lunch. I’ll be at the Subway in CAB building at 11:30

Example of HMU usage:

  • Dendi: I have two e-coupons for 20% off at Jinx.com. Does anyone want one of these coupons??
  • Puppey: I’ll take one coupon! I could use a Jinx shirt.
  • Dendi: OK, hmu with your email address so I can send the coupon to you.
