How to Tell What His Text Really Means

by Christy Taylor

While it's great that guys are trying to communicate their feelings, you may not realize what he's trying to say with one of these emoticons, here's what he means:

  • Happy face -- "I know you want me to say something nice, so I'm sticking this stupid Smiley face here."

  • Winking face -- "I just made a joke. Did you get it? Please test back LOL, because my ego is on the line."

  • Kissy face -- "I want to jump you bones, but I'm not okay with sexting. Oh and I'm cheesy."

  • Tongue sticking out face -- "In spite of the fact that I'm a grown man, I actually have the emotional maturity of a 12 year old."
