Means I love you in dinosaur. :D

It's simply quaint way of either grabbing someone's attention (by coppying a creature that makes that sound) or being a combination of cute and aggressive (an oxymoron if you will)

Sorry, this seriously needs to be corrected first.


What does "Rawr" actually mean?


One day, a friend who I hadn't seen for a long time messaged me and wrote "rawr". I thought he was just acting cute.  Later on, I understood it means "I love you" in dinosaur.

Still, I don't get it. Under what conditions do people say this? I mean, whether it is normal for people to use it to say hi.


The joke is, "Rawr" means "I love you" in Dinosaur. This is a cute little internet joke (now a little out of fashion), and you'd only use it if you knew the other person would understand the joke. So, I understand your confusion.  It's not a normal way of greeting people at all, so forget about using it to greet friends. (You will just look weird. Very, very weird.)

Aside from that, I don't know why your friend would write rawr to you. Was he being cute and affectionate?

It can have different meanings depending on the context, but since one of the meanings is this: "more sexually oriented version of the word "roar"" or "a sexy sort of growling sound", I wouldn't say it's a popular way to say hi. Still, for some the definition is: "A noise many people make to start conversations, tell someone that they're bored, and sometimes to say "I love you"" 


So maybe this particular friend wanted to talk to you but didn't know what else to say to start a conversation. Or they love you.

IT would be nice to know how do they pronounce it (compared to 'roar')
