How To Use The New Emojis To Get Everything You Ever Wanted
The other day a guy sent me an eye roll emoji because he was frustrated with his day and so naturally, I assumed he was frustrated with me. There’s probably some deeper emotional issue to be dealt with there, but I’m going to blame everything on emojis. Emojis make my life much easier until I realize miscommunication is destroying all of my texting relationships. Some emojis have the same meaning worldwide, but most of the time, I invent the meaning behind not only the emojis I send, but the emojis I receive. Emojis are a new language that is mostly used via text message. Emojis are easier to understand when used with a complete sentence, but a single emoji, a single emoji is my hell. People have learned to express themselves with emojis, and it isn’t going to stop any time soon. Maybe you dislike the emoji way of expression, or you feel as though civilization is regressing back to using hieroglyphics, but it’s time we learn how to clearly express ourselves using these simple visuals.
Signature emojis aren’t a thing, nobody owns an emoji, but we all have our (overused) favorites. Just when we accepted that the prayer hand emoji was actually a high five emoji, we received 184 brand f*cking new ones. The new emojis are awesome, but how do we use and understand them? I guess the correct answer would be emojipedia.org, but that’s lame. So here is our #GaloreGirl guide to using the new emojis so that you may get everything you ever wanted out of your lover.
