Term of vague affection, usually of the working class, intended towards someone of the opposite sex. Normally relatively meaningless. Common in Northern England, esp. Yorkshire (but also popular in southern and central Scotland); most other users are ex-pats.

A casual way of saying you really like someone without freaking them out by saying I love you. Commonly used by people early on in relationships, where it is too soon to say I love you.

Luv may develop into love but it is not love.

Mild version of love, describing good feelings for someone often for freinds on un serious partners. Love is considered to be deeper and stronger, luv is the mild version.
Luv ya, bye

"luv" is a laid back version of the word love. This word doesn't exist and is usually a word used with friends. Commonly used for people who think it's cool to type like a monkey with a keyboard. You shouldn't use this word if you're using it towards your boyfriend, girlfriend, wife, husband, etc. when typing, because it doesn't show off how much you really love them.

If you truly love someone, stop being a dick and spell it correctly.
I broke up with Shane last weekend because he kept telling me he 'luved' me.

a boyfriend uses this word when he is just too lazy to type "love" and show how much he actually cares. OR he wants some action from a girl so he says it but doesnt really mean it. its also what besties say to each other <3
