The first D is “ Dear” so it’s DD ( dear daughter), DS ( dear son) & so on 🙂

You have to read the context too though, DS is usually Dear Son but it can also be Dear Sis (also sometimes DSis).

DF is generally Dear Father but occasionally Dear Fiancé.

It’s usually fairly obvious from the post.

Welcome to MN.

Btw if you don’t understand something on a thread if you ask politely someone will usually quite happily explain it.
