Question LOL - What is the meaning of these letters?

OK. I just had to start a new thread on this one. I use LOL for "Lots of Love". I just sent an email to my bro about the Childhood Cancer Act and he said, "Why did you type LOL - Laugh out Loud"? I confused him - he thought it was weird that I was laughing about the situation. I guess the young hip kids use it for "Laugh out Loud".

Now, I pretty much LMAO "Laughed my Butt Off". What a diplomatic crisis I could cause. Laughing instead of sending Love.

We use it a lot on this forum. Am I using it wrong? Not that it matters but you people are probably wondering why I am always laughing out loud. You must think I am a fruitcake.

OK. You guys can tell me the truth.......

Interesting Lynn and Kathy. It is just too funny. I will have to wait until Susan E chimes in. She should be online soon. She always uses it a lot and I thought she was a "Lots of Love" person. Super loving at times

Well, you know us Hav people we are usually loving and laughing with this breed.

There needs to be a manual for this text shorthand.

And for now I am LMAO. Earlier with my bro I was ROTFLMAO. I sent all my family that email. They all must think I am nuts!!!!

Rita,

This gave me a great LOL "Laugh out Loud" this morning thanks, I needed it. I have never heard of "Lots of Love" but I really like it. I think we should all come up with some new ones for this forum like: HK "Hava Kisses"

How funny! I was laughing this morning reading this tread. I have teenagers so LOL to us is Laugh out Loud - I never heard of it meaning Lots of Love.
I did wonder at times in peoples responses why they were laughing at certain situations!! See what society has done to us? This is why kids who only text and IM and email with each other, misunderstand each other so much - no verbal communication!!

Does any one know of a "Cheat Sheet" we can all get? The only one I found is about 100 pages long. This is a whole new language that I don't know. Now I showing my age. LOL

This is really funny to me! I waited along time to use LOL, not sure exactly what is was.
Maybe we should make up our own language symbols -I like that idea.

I need to be able to send LOTS OF LOVE
