I've gotten use to emoticons and I use to use them a lot.

o3o -> a guy asked me if it meant a kiss, but I think it's simillar to " o.o " (huh/what/wowie..) owo o-o o_o

.3. -> ._. .-. (meh/disappointed) ._____.

T3T -> T_T T-T T^T TwT T.T (cry/sad) Y_Y (cry as well) ;__; :'c

^o~ -> ^o^/ ^3^ ^-^ ^^ ^.^ (happy/glad) X) X3 XD

x.x -> x_x x3x x-x (dead/tired) o.x

u.u -> u_u u-u u3u (not sure xD)

e.e -> e_e e-e e3e (eh/sick/uneasy) o.e (twitch)

(> )> <(< )

>.> -> (irratated/mad) >_> >3> >->

>o</ -> >O</\ (yell)

@(U__U)@ -> (monkey)

there's more... but that's what I can think of for now.

Jeez. I was stupid.


That sounds better then what I thought it was when I first saw it. I thought it was something being less than 3...... yeah I'm a bit of a math nerd.

I don't really know what most emoticons are supposed to stand for (unless it's an actual face then it's usually easy to figure out) and to be honest I don't really care.

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'd like to use this moment to say this emoticon on this site sucks: It literally looks like an emoticon used to show constipation. Winky faces are supposed to be sexy and I actually feel somewhat insulted when I see this in the option emoticon menu thing.....RANT ENDED.

lol me too! When I joined my first forum I saw like everyone using <3 and I was like 'Wow, I did not know this forum was filled with math geniuses!!!' I kept using it on there to seem smart until I figured out what it meant so people probably thought I was the most loving guy ever haha.

Ah, the interwebs.

One that always got me was: o3o. Only recently looked it up yo see what it meant. It is a kissing face, often used when someone is thankful or flirtatious.

I have no words for this forum topic.

Oh wait, I do. I've been on the internet for too long. D:" Or maybe I just play too many MMORPGs. People tend to use a lot, and I mean A LOT of emoticons when they talk.

Also " o3o " doesn't not mean it's a kissing face. To a few maybe, but " o3o " is basically the same as; " o.o o-o o_o "
And " owo " is basically if " o.o " had a child with " :3 "
