What does LYMI stand for?

Love you, mean it

LYMI stands for "love you, mean it." Your parents, friends, or significant other might use LYMI to let you know that, despite how much they tease and/or berate you, they really do love you.

If someone sends you 143, ILU, or ILY, they love you but don't mean it. If someone sends you DULM, you can respond with LYMI (though really, in that case, you might want to type out your feelings or give them a call).


You are such a great friend, lymi!
