Hey there, fabulous readers! Louisa Loveluck in the house, and today we’re diving into the delightful world of emojis – those tiny, expressive symbols that can turn a regular conversation into a playful dance of emotions.

Sometimes it feels like you’re reading a foreign language when you try to decipher these emojis. Are there significant differences in the meaning of the smiling face emoji and the angel face emoji, for instance?

What about the less common ones, like the purple heart or monkey emojis? To what end is it all meaningless?

At first glance, you might think he’s being flirtatious or romantic when he uses emojis. To express his profound feelings for you, he is using emojis in that form, which is almost like artwork.

But you might also wonder if he’s just being cordial or sarcastic. How can you deduce his intentions from his text messages when so many people casually share emojis?

How a guy writes his texts might tell you a lot about his intentions. Knowing what emojis they use when they love (or really like) someone is important.

Let’s break down the 😘 and unveil the secrets of other emojis guys often use.

What Does It Mean When a Guy Sends 😘?

He’s flirting with you, which is what the kiss emoji almost always means. He’s being upfront and direct about how much he likes you. He’s being more romantic than sexual at the same time.

A kissing emoji can also insinuate that he wants to make you feel better (“I hope your day goes well today😘”) or that he really values you as a person (“I had such a great time with you last weekend😘”).

😘 Meaning From a Guy Friend

Pay close attention if a guy friend sends you the kissy face emoji! Most likely, he’s flirting with you. The kiss mark emoji is not just randomly used to be friendly.

Several kissy face emojis imply even more flirtatious behavior (“Hoping your day goes well😘😘😘”). He may be too nervous to tell you how he really feels.

What Does 🥰 Mean From a Guy?

The heart-faced emoji can be used as a way to express romantic affection. It’s almost a clear sign that a guy likes you (so if you’re currently just friends, pay attention).

A guy may use this when he starts experiencing deeper feelings (“I really like getting to know you🥰”) or when he’s trying to express romantic affection (“I just love you so much! 🥰”).

What Does The Heart Emoji ❤️ Mean?

The red heart emoji is a sign of love and connection. At times, it can reinforce that there is a deeper meaning in your relationship (“I love you always❤️”).

Other times, it may just be a simple reminder of how much he cares about you (“Getting you your favorite donut right now❤️”).

He may substitute a green, yellow, blue, or purple emoji for the red heart emoji. However, keep in mind that red is most often associated with man.

💋 Meaning From a Guy

The kiss mark emoji is a tangible and visual way for him to express warm feelings of romantic affection. It’s one of the emojis guys send when they care about someone (“You’re the best 💋”).

🥳 Meaning From a Guy

The cheers emoji can take on a few different meanings. He may be trying to celebrate something with you (“congrats on the new job! 🥳).

But he might also use it sarcastically (“just spending my entire day doing chores 🥳🥳🥳🥳”).

What Does 😚 Mean From a Guy?

The blowing kiss emoji tends to have a playful theme to it (“just thinking about how much fun we had together this weekend😚”).

If he sends it to you, he’s being compassionate without being over the top. His virtual kiss may also signify that he cares about you and sends you good wishes (“You’re going to crush it tonight!😚”).

What Is the Difference Between 😘 and 😚?

That being said, these two emojis look alike but mean different things. It’s more romantic and flirty to use the kissy face emoji with the heart. If a guy didn’t have true feelings for you, he wouldn’t send you that.

It may be a little more playful to use the blowing kiss emoji. A guy might use it when he’s flirting, but he might also use it with friends or family.

😁 Meaning From a Guy

The big smiley face emoji can mean anything! It may be flirtatious (“I had a great time with you last night!😁).

It may also signify his happiness (“I am eating the best pizza of my life. So happy😁”). His smiling face shows he’s in a good mood, though.

😇 Meaning From a Guy

If a guy sends you the angel emoji, he probably wants to play with you. (“I did the dishes 😇”). Or, he might also be acting sarcastically (“I won’t even try to hold your hand 😇 “).

🥵 Meaning From a Guy

The sweating and hot emoji can mean a few different things. First, he might use it when he is hot (“It’s a million degrees outside🥵).

But he might also use it to compliment your attractiveness (“Look at how good those jeans look on you🥵🥵🥵!”

🤩 Meaning From a Guy

The star-eyed emoji could mean that he’s feeling enamoured by you. (“I can’t believe you went out with me last night🤩”).

But it can also mean that he’s simply feeling enamored by anything (“My new jacket arrived🤩🤩🤩”). It insinuates a sense of enthusiasm and is a heightened version of other smiley faces.

🤭 Meaning From a Guy

With the hand in front of the mouth, the blushing face emoji suggests that he is flirting with you. It also implies that you need to “guess” his intentions (“I’m not going to tell you who I like🤭”).

🤪 Meaning From a Guy

The silly face emoji shows his playful, silly side. He might use it when joking around with you (“I don’t know what you’re talking about- I’m innocent here🤪”).

What Does 🙃 Mean From a Guy

The upside-down smiling face may be used in various contexts. It could be a form of flirting (“Thinking of you🙃”). It could also be a way to express humor or sarcasm (“I got yelled at by my boss all morning. Great day so far!🙃”).

He feels safe being himself and being silly with you if he frequently sends an upside-down face. A cheesy grin is just another form.

🥲 Meaning From a Guy

Using the crying smiley emoji can seem a little confusing. Is he satisfied or unhappy? It can be both, it turns out.

But it often signifies feelings of nostalgia (“looking through old pictures of us- we were so young!🥲”), gratitude, or a sense of something being bittersweet.

(“That was so sweet of you to text my grandma today🥲 She loves you”)

🤞🏽 Meaning From a Guy

The crossed-finger emoji is fairly universal for wishing you (or him) good luck (“I’ll be thinking of you during your interview🤞🏽).

Remember that this text could have been sent by a casual friend and not have any romantic meaning.

If it’s paired with a more suggestive emoji like a kiss, winking, or heart-eye, it might be romantic.


🤧 Meaning From a Guy

The sick emoji tends to be relatively literal and straightforward. He doesn’t feel well, but he probably wants you to comfort him (“Woke up feeling terrible🤧.”). This text doesn’t imply flirty behavior.

But remember that your guy loves when you take care of him.

🤣 Meaning From a Guy

The crying laughter emoji is almost always a good sign! He either thinks you said something funny (“That’s good!🤣”), or he’s recounting a funny event with you (“She loved the costume that I wore 🤣”).

That said, it’s a common emoji used among most friends and family, so don’t necessarily assume he’s being flirty.

🥱 Meaning From a Guy

The yawning emoji means he’s bored or tired (or feeling both emotions simultaneously). A guy sends this emoji when he wants you to know how mundane something in his life is (“another four hours of work🥱”).

😍 Meaning From a Guy

The heart-shaped eyes emoji typically insinuates some form of affection or love (“I just opened the gift you got me!😍”). It’s one of those emojis guys use when they feel connected with someone (“You make me so happy😍😍😍”).

😳 Meaning From a Guy

The surprised face emoji often means he’s currently processing some information (“my sister just got engaged!😳”). It could also mean that he doesn’t like a certain outcome (“Failed my test😳”).

🥺 Meaning From a Guy

When he’s trying to be affectionate or to share warm feelings with you, the adorable face may be used.

He may send it with a cute image or memory of the two of you together (“This picture of us is my favorite🥺”).

He might also send it to thank you (“I love the cookies you made me🥺🥺”).

🥴 Meaning From a Guy

The crooked “drunk” emoji can also have a couple of meanings. He may use it when embarrassed (“I can’t believe you saw how messy my room was🥴”).

Or he might use it when he wants attention (“I’m bored. What are you up to?🥴”).

🧐 Meaning From a Guy

The “hmm” emoji usually means a guy is curious about something. That curiosity could be about anything. He might be asking you an important question (Who are you voting for in this next election?🧐”).

It might also be a way to gauge your feelings about him (“What do you think about taking things to the next level🧐 🧐 “).

One of the biggest signs that he likes you is if he sends the heart-eye emoji frequently.

😏 Meaning From a Guy

The smirk emoji is one of the most popular emojis guys use when they flirt (“just thinking about what we’re going to do later😏”).

This particular emoji typically has a sexual undertone. It looks like a guy might make a smirk face in real life!

🤗 Meaning From a Guy

The hugging face emoji implies some form of affection and compassion. It may be romantic (“I love you so much 🤗”, but it can also be platonic (“I’m here if you need someone to talk to!”🤗).

☺️ Meaning From a Guy

The blushing emoji can mean that he feels obsessed over you. It’s a version of smiling eyes showing that he cares about your relationship (“I made the bed for you☺️”).

Although some guys might say it to be friendly (“On my way►”). This is a more obvious sign of romantic love if he also uses other emojis, like the double-heart emoji or the winking emoji.

😗 Meaning From a Guy

The relieved face and winky kissy face emoji send two messages in one: He likes what’s happening, and he wants more (“The way you looked last night blew my mind😗”).

He may even send it as a single text in response to a picture you send.

😉 Meaning From a Guy

Like in real life, the winky face almost always tends to be flirtatious (“Thinking of you right now😉”).

It can also be sexual (“What are you wearing when I see you😉”). A guy friend wouldn’t send this to you if he weren’t trying to take things to the next level.

😴 Meaning From a Guy

No shocker! This emoji means he’s tired! It can also signal that he’s about to sleep and will no longer be texting you (“Gotta wrap this up😴”).

🎭 Meaning From a Guy

The drama face emoji usually signifies something dramatic in his life (“my parents are having dinner with me tonight🎭”).

He’s likely insinuating that he anticipates some tension or problems.


Emojis can mean anything from deep affection to seductive flirting. But, chances are, if a guy loves (or likes you), his motives will be relatively obvious.

Remember, emojis are the unsung heroes of digital communication. They add flair, convey emotions, and keep things light. So, the next time you see a 😘 or any other emoji in your chat, know that there’s more to it than meets the eye. Happy emoji deciphering, lovelies! 💬✨
