What does RBTL Mean in Texting?

RBTL is an acronym for “read between the lines”. It is a phrase we often use when someone doesn’t get what we are trying to tell them indirectly. By reading between the lines we mean that they should look for the not so obvious meaning in what we are saying, although that meaning is heavily hinted at.
