An extremely versatile word used by the lazy man to express one of the following: "trying to", "trying the", or "trying a". According to legend, this word has been used in countless text messages, resulting in exorbitant anger felt by significant others.
<in bed>
Boyfriend (we'll just call him Peter): Sorry, babe, I was tryna last longer but couldn't handle the pressure.
Girlfriend (we'll just call her Julia): *sigh* It's fine, Peter. Maybe next month.

<the next day - texting>
Peter: Sorry again about last night. :sadpuppyemoji: I was really tryna please you, but I guess my best wasn't good nuff.
Julia: I said IT'S FINE. Also, it's spelled "TRYING TO" - not "TRYNA"! Stop being so damn lazy!
Peter: Hey babe, I'm tryna best I can! I was even thinkin bout tryna kale salad next week, so we could have something in common!
Julia: Well I've been 'tryna' get you out of my house for over a year now, and that hasn't worked. I'm not getting my hopes up.

<later that night - coming home to Peter drinking a beer and coffee at the same time, while using Julia's movies and books as coasters>
Julia: Aw, fuck it. *shoots Peter*
Peter (in his dying words): I'm... still... gonna... be... tryna... haunt... you... at... the......... grocery store.

Get a tryna mug for your Uncle Manafort.
second generation evolution of "you trying to do something", which is the evolved form of "would you like to do something".

combines "trying to do (the activity)" in one word - very helpful in a world where shortness (laziness) versus clarity reigns supreme.
"u tryna bowling?!" instead of wasting all that time saying "are you trying to go bowling?", or in the olden days: "would you like to go bowling?"

"u tryna do something tonight" - still wordy (I'd prefer "u tryna somethin" but i won't be picky)

"u tryna tryna" - funny lolligagging with the word tryna; even i'm not sure what this means and i created the slang...third evolution perhaps?
