What Does TCCIC Mean in a Text?

TCCIC means "Take Care Cos I Care." It is typically used to sign off a conversation between good friends (as opposed to between people who love each other). However, this connotation does not always apply; i.e., the words can be taken literally and applied to your context.

Bear this in mind though: When sent from a boy who fancies a girl, TCCIC often aligns with this notion:

Girl's definition of a plutonic relationship: Someone I'm not having sex with.

Boy's definition of a plutonic relationship: Someone I'm not having sex with...yet.

An Academic Look at TCCIC

TCCIC is used as a standalone declarative sentence (i.e., a statement). In other words, it is not used as another part of speech within a wider sentence.

TCCIC is an initialism abbreviation. This means it is pronounced using its individual letters (i.e., Tee Cee Cee Aye Cee). (NB: Initialisms contrast with acronyms, which are spoken like words.)
