The act of two users pretending to have a (virtual) relationship on an online forum, to add some drama to the forum.
They post dirty talk on each others profile pages, have avatars with the other persons name in it, express their love for their partner in their signatures and heavily quote each others posts. Having a LOT-relation can quickly make both users known at the forum and is generally a source of amusement aswell.
A partner may find himself heavily frustrated upon seeing a new name in their now ex-lover's signature or avatar, indicating that he/she has a new LOT-buddy. This oftens happens when the unlucky user has been inactive or was just boring the shit out of his/her partner. LOT-breakups spawn more drama at the forum, adding up to the fun of having such a relationship.

skater666: aww come on cut this LOT-relation crap already!
The term originates from men going on holiday, either as a single group with the mindset of terrorising the locals, or with an accompanying group of the opposite sex, with the intention of backup pulls, always leading to an uncomfortable situation when the touring parties return home. The phrase “What goes on Tour, stays on Tour” is used in these situations.
The phrase has crept into everyday activity, and there are some men who consider themselves constantly ‘on Tour’, and group trips to the shops for the Hangover Breakfast (Full English), BBQs, fishing trips, watching live sporting events can descend into comedy. Unfortunately this behaviour is very contagious and gathers momentum quickly, as men try to out-do each other in competition (Go big or go home), and outrageous scenes may ensue, only to be ended by a call to the emergency services.
L.O.T can be used in conjunction with B.N.O (Big/Boys Night Out), although this can lead to complications as Sheila from I.T. may be glad she's seen you out of work, but not appreciate her bra being unclipped in the club because she has made a massive error in wearing a dress that allows access so easily it would be rude not to.
The Stag/Bucks/Bachelors Party should be the pinnacle of L.O.T behaviour. Unless you are a pussy 'ole.

Becca: "I'm looking after the kids, James is going out to that new bar with Rick and David, I think it's going to be L.O.T"
Michaela: "Oh no, don't you get worried?"
Becca: "A glass of wine helps"
Bruce: "Mate, this villa looks so sick, and we're only a 15 minute walk from the strip"
Bruce: "I'd expect nothing else"
