What does ILUM mean when texting?

I love you man

ILUM is an acronym that stands for "I love you man," where the "U" represents "You." It is typically used between guys to communicate appreciation for each other.

The acronym is often used by younger males, or bros, who embrace their bromance with other guys. Some may classify these males as overly-sensitive, while others may think they are just comfortable with their feelings.

Be careful who you use it with since it will most likely confuse them because it is not very common. It may also weird some people out, as well. The acronym may also refer to the 2009 movie, "I Love You, Man."


I can't believe you gave me your old big screen TV. ILUM!
