Love Stamp by Phillus Love Stamp by Phillus
This has been in my mind for some time, regarding people use '<3' as 'love'. Looking at it, it's a combination of '< (less than)' and 'three'. So most of the time it's used for loving something.

Of course I am not stating that this is only used for a target and 'I <3 chocolates and milk' is wrong, but still, it somehow gives me the feeling that it's a rather specific way of expressing the word 'love'.

That's all; I doubt anyone would use this stamp for whatever...

You're right, love is between two, which is one less than three.

I know a lot of people who think dating 2 people at once is okay. I mean its fine if they all agree and dont care but its not if they love each other. There'd be jealousy and anger.. How would that work? Love is between 2 people. Lust is a different story for some others. Sorry if this sounds unrelated, your stamp just reminded me of a situation my friends have. :iconfacewallplz:

I saw it as love is between less then three people, like cheating isn't love or something because you can't love them both at once (which I kind of disagree with ... I love lots of boys, but for different reasons and none of those reasons are romantic so doesn't count :b)

Well, he did it intentionally. He invented the whole math equation so the result would be that.

If it's less than three, could it also mean that two's company, or that you support pairings?
Y'know... it being a love stamp and all that...
... perhaps I'm reading too far into it. :/
Great stamp! :D
