means I am absolutely SEETHING. Like, if I use a in a message it means I’m at max capacity of passive aggression. I interpret all messages using this emoji in this vein and can’t see past it - I think it is partly why I built up resentment with my ex best friend (a tiny reason among a massive list but we definitely used it in different ways and he was very passive aggressive anyway so it kind of exacerbated that)
means I’m in a zany mood
Can be safety wink on here (or passive aggression with someone in a private message) but when i read it from anyone else in any other context I interpret it as someone being really sleazy, cock in hand. Unfortunately one of the more senior people in my work team (who is religious and a total wife guy) uses it on basically every message…
either very dismayed and trying to detach from level of dismay (‘what can you do’ kinda vibe), or flirting in an aloof way. it’s the equivalent of throwing down a flirt and disowning it immediately. doesn’t mean that I don’t want to flirt, often the opposite, but it probably means I’m not sure if the other person reciprocates or I’m slightly uncomfortable in some capacity while I’m hitting on someone
works better on WhatsApp, but this is usually used to finish off a message that is pure filth, implying that I’m totally chilled about said filth
means I’m either flirting in a cheeky way or cosplaying as a hun x
I used to use this with my mother, to mean smiling but not really, thinking that she would interpret it in her own way. Then she started using it, I think to mean the same thing? Maybe she has a different meaning for it, but I don’t know if I want to ask.
on here is me needing immediate hugs or empathy, dont seem to use it outside of dis but going to start doing
is a non creepy hug but only for people i love a lot
adhd meltdown usually
Really going to expand my emoji horizon this year though, so many babes left unused, but i don’t know if its an nd thing or not bur i struggle with their meaning at times - I’d really like a proper guide to what they’re meant to mean. Like the upside down smile to me is bad but do some people use it for good? If i get sent ones like that i spend way too long worrying about how to interpret them
So when I say private message I’m not talking about DiS as if I wanna get super passive aggressive I’ll just do it in public but I mean like Facebook messenger or WhatsApp which are my main messaging platforms. A pass agg winky face would be clear from the context but it would be masked with a facade of ‘just kidding!’ - there’s certainly more levity than when I crack out the . No levity there at all.
Obviously if someone uses a in a sexual way that’s fine (if I reciprocate). It’s just when it is randomly deployed that it seems sleazy!
