note: <3 (luv) and love are not necesarily the same. Luv, like 'lub', is a less serious and more lighthearted version of 'love'.
(none of these is equal to 'I love you')
The symbol has inspired other equally pathetic phrases such as "less than three" and "<three", which have been invented by lame emo/indie/pop punk fans and scenesters. In the end, "<3", "less than three", and "<three" all mean the same thing.
I'll also program a breakup into code. (GML. It is similar to C++)...
//Yes this had to do with my life :'(
//0 means doesn't love
//1 means is in love
//how it started out:
//how it ended out:
//notice how guy is still 1 ... :(
//and this is always checking for any changes::
if (girl=1 and guy=1) then truelove=1;
else if (girl!=1 or guy!=1) then truelove=0;
Also, this is taken from Veggie's definition for !...
In the programming world, this means NOT. It is mostly used in boolean expressions, mostly found in if statements, to express the non-equality of something.
It can be used with an '=' sign like this: 3 != 4, meaning 3 does not equal 4. This is a true expression, and so the expression would return TRUE. However, if I put: ((6-3) != (5-2)) I'm basically saying 6-3 is not equal to 5-2, or 3 does not equal 3. But 3 DOES equal 3. So this expression would return false.
NOTE: != is pronounced as "Does Not Equal"
< <-> 3....<3.
If u want to show big love you use more 3's.
there is no limit in how many 3's you can have.
More 3's equals more love.
Pia: Look at that hair <3
Guri: =O look at those pants <333333
Fia: Look at the 6-pack on that guy <3333333333333333333333333333333333333
This show that you really care about this preson because of all the 3's, very personal heart.
Example 2: You can also type <3<3<3<333<3<<<33<333<33<33<3<33
but this version is more unpersonal and reflects that you are in a hurry
