From Encyclopedia Dramatica
ILY (pronounced ILL-EE or EYE-LEE) is an abbreviation of "I love you," most commonly used by MySpace whores, gays, emo kids, and 16-year-old girls. It can be used over the internet, in text messaging, or written in those notes you used to pass when you had an erection in science class.

In American Sign Language
OMG, ILY is actually part of IRL ASL! The very creative one-hand static sign is made by combining the signs for the letters I, L and Y to form this (drawn illustration). Effective way to hit on Deaf chicks/dudes.
