-a statement of the writer towards the one the message is intended to go to
-a shortened or abbreviated one-word form of "much love", "love ya", or "I love you" used at the end of a message or conversation.
- term of kindred affection (generally not romantic affection)
- can be used to indicate extreme care for someone without the sometimes oppressive, or misunderstood stigma of saying "I love you".
-NOT generally used as a synonym for "Love ___ (insert name)" at the end of a formal letter
-USUALLY the writer's name is left off after this word is used because the recipient of the message already knows who the message is from. (i.e. use on facebook)

I had a freaking amazing time at your party Friday!
Oh the things that happen when our group gets together... we must do it again soon.
