A 3d chat program that should only be used by people with fast internet and a good processor. Users can interact with one another virtually with everything from hugs and kisses to pokes in the eye.

Users can also buy virtual clothes and rooms/houses for their avatars (avi for short). While the credits to buy clothes are for sale, most users find it easy to survive without actually having to buy anything via Free Spin, Browsing the New Products Page, Inviting Friends, and joining MetaRL.

It's a fun 3d chat program, but also quite hilarious/annoying with the people that take it too realistically, and those credit whores.

To get cheated, "indian giver" to have something taken back after you have bought it or it has been given to you.
Due to IMVU`s constantly changing terms of service tens of thousands of virtual items that users have bought are being rerated as not suitable to be used on IMVU, and are being deleted from user accounts.
yo, you said you were going to sell me your ipod now you say you changed your mind and you want it back?
Don`t IMVU me like this dude!

Your brother took back those shoes he gave you?
Man, he IMVU`ed you BAD!

A virtual game people play where they go clubbing, dancing, buy clothes, and gift each other stuff. It's kinda like the Sims, except you can't build your own town. Most of the people there treat it as if it is real life, so if you slap or insult their character they will become very angry and pound away at their keyboards at you. Also, the majority of the people who play this game are 14-18 and tend to be the more "nerdy" type.

You can also have sex, children, and get married in this game!
Me: Wanna go to the mall today?
Friend: No, not now. My girlfriend and I are at the amusement park!
Me: Oh my God, you're gay?? Why didn't you tell me?
Friend: What? No. I'm a guy on IMVU and I have a girlfriend.
Me: Oh, so wanna go to the ACTUAL mall?
Friend: Uhm, actually, can you get on IMVU, my girlfriend wants to meet you...
Me: Oh god **powers on computer**, I'm getting tired of being a loser with you. You need to get out of the house ASAP!

A vast open space for little 9- 99 year old whores to run and play. You are able to dress up and maybe if you're lucky, you might virtually get some, don't forget to pay real money for virtual money. ;)

3D chat application.

A chat application - look to your right, you'll probably see an ad of it - where you can create a 3D avatar, chat in 3D rooms and perform actions with the other avatars (users).
You can also customise your avatar by using credits (IMVU's virtual currency) to buy stuff from other players.
IMVU is the most popular 3D chat application.
