What Does BESITOS Mean in a Text?

BESITOS means "Little Kisses" (Spanish).

BESITOS is a diminutive of the Spanish word "Besos," meaning kisses. It is often used at the end of a message in much the same way that English-speaking people might sign off a message with "x" (or multiples thereof) to indicate kisses.

As with "x" in English, the use of BESITOS is typically restricted to messages between girls, people of the opposite sex or family members. (It would not be appropriate to sign off a message to your boss or bank manager with BESITOS!) However, BESITOS is used much more widely than might be expected by English-speaking people, who might normally save their kisses for close friends and family members.
