A shortened term for "I love you" used on IM programs such as MSN, Skype, aim and facebook for people too lazy to say I love you.
In english when people say ily they mean "My friends dared me to ask you out but i'll make out with you and dump you after 2 days not considering your feelings.

The word 'ily', is the shortened version of 'I love you', and is often used in texts, instant messengers, and in comment boxes on personal webpages.
Ily is usually read/said as all one word rather than pronounced as single letters such as 'I-L-Y'.
It is usually recieved as an affectionate term used more to describe your admiration for someone, rather than actual love, although can mean different things in different situations.
Boyfriend to Girlfriend: "Don't ever let me lose you, ily"
Friend to friend: "Ily girl!'
Texts: "Meet me by the cinema at 2 o'clock, ily, Fred"
Instant messenger: "Sorry, I g2g now, ily xxx"
Comment boxes: "What a pretty girl, ily!"
