    Default What does this mean?

    いっぱいloveloveしようね

    ? I just received this in an email, and from what I know ippai in this context probably means full (as in onaka ippai) but shiyou I'm not sure about, nor am I sure how to interpret the whole thing put together.

    Simple, I know.

    "Let's be full of love", or some such shite.
    Or maybe it means "love, love", as in sexy time.

    いっぱい can mean "full", but it also means "a lot of". Lovelove (ラブラブ) means mutual, reciprocal love. しよう is the volitional form of する. Without context, it's impossible to be certain, but in this case it's probably equivalent to "let's". I can't come up with a nice, idiomatic translation, but it's something like "Let's be very in love with each other."

    I think a better translation is.

    "Let's have one glass of love"

    "We're gonna have sex when we see each other next time"

    That's what she said.

    i like Ali's translation.

    I was thinking it was "lets make lots of sexy time" - but you know the context, whether it is more likely to be romantic love or sexy time.

    Seconding it. It's one of those emphatic phrases that can mean everything but it's 99% certain to be something good in this case. Good hunting.
