Relationship Assuring Text. RAT's are SMS messages sent to convey approval of or delight in a previous social encounter with an individual of undefined relationship status with the sender. A RAT is most commonly employed after a first date where one or both parties are unsure about the perceived success of the other party. Such dates are often seen as "Awkward dates" by third parties. An exchange of RAT's sent the evening after a first date almost ensure a second date, effectively breaking the ice for more casual conversation.

The effectiveness of "Morning RAT's" (RAT's sent the morning after a first date) are hotly debated because they are believed by some to close the deal, but can also be seen as a red flag.

n. Car sales: A person with horrific credit that doesn't pay their bills. They may get financed but if they are, it will be at an incredibly high interest rate. These creatures usually come in some beat up dirty trade-ins that they have often negative equity issues with.
Man, I cannot believe we got that Rat financed on the deal! I guess it helped that he had $5000.00 down!

Acronym for roll and tug. The art of self pleasure when your hookup decides not to give it up. Waiting until your bed mate is asleep is at your discretion.
Dude, she didn't give it up. But that's OK. Did a little RAT instead.

Girl: "I'm not ready to have sex with you."
Dude: "That's OK, I'll just RAT and pass out."
