The slang is not just limited to two lovers far away, but it also looks out for best friends who have not seen each other after school. For example, friends who couldn’t get to meet for years after college or the mother who just bid goodbye to her daughter who started her hostel life.


The usage

The primary usage of this acronym is to express your feelings and how much you feel the other person’s presence. The abbreviation is just as pure as the emotion itself. Usually, you send it along with a heart emoji or a crying one or simple dots. It can be seen in the form of captions for photographs.

The acronym proves to be a good inspiration for a lot of Hollywood and Bollywood songs. An artist Kodak Black especially wrote a Song named I.M.Y in the year 2015. The song is a part of the album “Institution”.

Either way, the abbreviation sends out a clear message that the person especially thinks of you. It can be used as a part of the sentence or just the acronym alone. It still means the same.

Alternate acronyms

After this acronym became popular, a couple of its variations surfaced which further emphasised on emotions.

Some of them are:

1.IMYSM: I Miss You So Much

2.IMYSFM: I Miss You So F***** Much

3.IMYSB: I Miss You So Bad

4.IMYMTA: I Miss You More Than Anything

There are some of the alternative acronyms that can come in handy when a simple IMY is not enough. However, sometimes its best to just say “I miss you” instead of the slang since it shows more seriousness for your feelings.

Difference between IMY and imy

In the textual language, this acronym does not make any difference when written either way. However, you can view it this way; if you write the slang in lower case, it might just portray that you are feeling depressed and sad and want that person to know. Whereas when the same slang is written in say upper case, it might just show the urgency in the text. The difference lies in how you perceive either of them.


Example 1: when written in the lower case

Person-1: Maa, are you there?

Person-2: Yes honey, what is it?

Person-1: nothing its just imy

Example 2: when written in the upper case

Person-1: BRO!!!! YOU THERE!??

Person-2: yes yes! What up!

Person-1: Just come home already!!! IMY!!!!
