Emoticon for heart.
I <3 You !
or I less than 3 you.

Viewed sideways becomes a heart. Usually used to express luv or love for something over the internet. Can be used on a complete stranger you met in an online forum. Less creepy than using the word love on people you don't know.

note: <3 (luv) and love are not necesarily the same. Luv, like 'lub', is a less serious and more lighthearted version of 'love'.
I <3 u = I luv u = I lubu
(none of these is equal to 'I love you')

A symbol used in place of the word "heart". Mostly used by pathetic scenesters. Only use this if you're willing to be laughed at and made fun of.

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 <3 being a pussy.

Started with the classical I <3 NY. <3 is just hearts/love in characters. Its just a way of expressing love but not using the word love because love shouldn't be said nonchalantly, and should be safed for the right moment.
Abby is <3 always! Pipi thanks for everything

The word means love or heart, where "<" is the bottom and the "3" is the top of the heart.
< <-> 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.
Example:
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
