Several times I've seen people refer to their significant other as "DF" on the forums. I know what DP and DH and SO stand for but what does DF stand for? I thought maybe Dear Father or Dear Friend but the context isn't right for either of those.

ds- darling dear darn Son
dd- daughter
DW- Wife
poas- pee on a stick
