A winky? It's the wink - like you use when you're correcting someone.

Someone tell me what ._. and ,_, mean. I've never been able to figure out if they're frowns, smiles, or something else.

I always use ._. when I'm speechless. Or ... kind of thing.

Have you ever misinterpret the meaning of an emoticon?

I remember when I first saw T_T I thought it meant someone who is unimpressed or *stare*...but a lot more people use it for crying. There were a few times when someone got pretty offended and told me I was giving them an attitude because of this emoticon -> -_-"

Personally, I usually use this face -_-" when something doesn't go as planned, or when something unfavorable has happened. I really don't think it's meant to be something to attack a person with


I always thought the same thing with the unimpressed/crying face :O
But after like two years of using it like that, my friend finally explained it to me... ^-^

Emoticons are my favorite. My commonly used, most recent one is this: " o 3 o " It's meant to be a stare, with a touch of idiocy. I don't know how to describe it other than that. But I've been using it quite a bit. I also use this one for gratitude, or happiness: " ^_^ " and this one if I'm scared or upset: " • A • "

Jeez. I was stupid.

It's not just you, I still see <3 as a face. And yet use it all the time. XD

I started using emoticons before I ever knew that they were, well, faces. So, I probably put in response to something sad. XD
