What Does ILYVM Mean in a Text?

Expressing Love in a Text

There are over 100 novel ways to express love in a text message. Some of them were invented by the iKids (i.e., Millennials, Generation Z, and Generation A), making them just a few decades old, but many of them have been around for centuries. Here's the one that matters to you: ILYVM means "I Love You Very Much."

More Observations...

The abbreviation ILYVM is used with the meaning "I Love You Very Much," as a sincere way of expressing deep devotion. For example:
  • Toni: Darling, ILYVM. Will you marry me?
  • Jo: I thought you'd never ask. Yes, of course I will!
  • Sam: It's great that we get on so well and love the same things. ILYVM.
  • Lee: Yes, ILYVM too. Now, please send me a copy of that letter.
Unlike some other abbreviations, such as LHK (Love, Hugs and Kisses) and LYB (Love You, Bye), ILYVM is not typically used in a jokey or insincere way. It usually carries a serious and sensible sentiment.
