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.
