How Do I Interpret a Guy’s Emoji Use? Dear Betch…

Hey Betches,

So there’s this guy I’ve been texting and we have hung out a few times. He seems nice so far but he does this thing where he will randomly (like at 3pm on a Tuesday random) text me only a smiley face. Not even an emoji, just a 🙂

At first I thought it was just him being cute, but if he really wanted to talk to me wouldn’t he use words to do that instead of a 1992 style emoji? Or is this just a mid-afternoon booty call?

And then when I thought it was just like a thing he did, another guy did it to me. Random smiley face after hours of not texting me. Is this a new thing that guys have invented to cause mass confusion for the girl they’re texting?

Any input would be great.


More like LOL, amirite?

Lmao, am I ever glad I’m not in the college dating pool anymore. This is just ridiculous. Was there ZERO context to any of these smiley faces? WTF. If I had to guess I’d say these guys are just trying to test the waters and make sure you haven’t forgotten about their existence (read: dicks), but are too much of a pussy to like, actually text you a complete greeting. A “Hey, I’m still here and would fuck so don’t move onto some other dude,” if you will. Is this what we’re classifying as “effort” nowadays? May God help us all.
