What Does STSP Mean in a Text?

The Quick Answer

STSP means "Same Time, Same Place."

More Observations...

The abbreviation STSP confirms arrangements for the next contact or physical meeting. STSP can be used either as a statement or as a question. If used as a question, it would normally be followed by a question mark (i.e., it would be written "STSP?"). However, as it is common in text-based messaging to omit all punctuation, including question marks, context is crucial to understating the use of STSP. STSP means exactly the same as the abbreviation STSP (Same Place, Same Time). "Same Time, Same Place" is the third episode of the seventh season of TV fantasy series "Buffy the Vampire Slayer."

An Academic Look at STSP

As it is pronounced using its individual letters (i.e., "Ess Tee Ess Pee"), STSP is classified as an initialism abbreviation. Initialisms are different to acronyms, which are spoken like words. STSP is often used as a standalone declarative sentence (i.e., a statement). It can also play the role of an interrogative sentence (i.e., a question), but it is still commonly seen without a question mark. In other words, even as a question, it can be written "STSP?" or "STSP".

What Did We Say before Texting and Social Media?

Before the digital era, we would have just said "Same Time, Same Place" instead of using the abbreviation STSP.
