Texting has become one of the major forms of communication within the past few years, however, more and more people are using emojis to express themselves instead of using real words. Many texters believe that when it comes to communicating with others with emojis, the fewer you use the better it is.

Well, that all depends on who you’re talking with of course.

According to a study that consisted of over 4,000 online daters, it was revealed that your choices of emojis really do matter. The most interesting discovery is that noses matter! Who knew! When you use :-) you will get 13 percent more positive responses and if you choose to go to no nose route with : ) , you are 66 percent more likely to go unanswered.

So how can you be certain you’re sending the right message? Here we will discuss how you can take your emoji flirting game to the next level by understanding the various emojis and what they mean.

1. The Blush

If there is an emoji that translates perfectly into technology as it does in real life, it’s the blush. This particular emoji combines a peck (whether on the lips or the cheek is up to you) and a blush and it can be taken one of two ways—either you’re delighted by what you’ve just read or you’re smitten and have been rendered speechless. Either way, it’s endearing!

2. The Tongue

Oh la la, the tongue! This emoticon is perfect for your everyday flirts. It can make sense in any situation and it has a carefree attitude that works well with jokes of any variety as well as witty one-liners. You can use this emoticon when you want to continue your flirtatious back and forth.

3. Crazy Hearts (Hearts for Eyes)

This emoji is often taken out of context and it can be hard to understand when to use it with one of your more risqué one-liners. When you’re flirting via text, you’ll want to use this as little as possible because if you use it too liberally, the guy might think you’re a bit obsessed and put you on a block.

4. The Wink

This classic emoticon is the most used and most beloved emoji in any texters arsenal as it can mean a plethora of things. It can let him know that you are getting what he’s not saying but you can also let him know that you like him and his flirtatious attempts.

5. The Halo

Whenever you get the Halo (or more commonly known as the Angel Baby), you should know that it means that you are willing and ready to get down and dirty with your baby. When it comes to emojis, this is basically foreplay and it means only one thing—you better be prepared to get wild when you see each other face to face.

6. Hey There

This emoji is the one where it is looking to the side and giving you that sly come hither look. This emoji is letting you know they know what’s up and something is about to go down. Something very fun and very flirtatious, if you catch our drift.

7. Blowing Kisses

This is a little less steamy than the Angel Baby emoji, but the intention is relatively the same. This can be used when you want the other person to know that you cannot stop thinking about them and all you want to do is cover his body is kisses.

8. See No Evil

This cute little emoji is a monkey covering its eyes and it should be used when you want to get noticed immediately. Why immediately? Well, there aren’t too many people who come out the gate using the monkey emoji and by doing this, it’ll catch him off guard, make him laugh, and respond to you that much quicker.

9. Tell Me I’m Pretty

The girl with her hands on her head is intended to be a simple “Okay” but some people tend to use it as a flirtatious “Thank You.” The true meaning is up to you, but just be sure that the other person is in on the meaning because otherwise, it could look like you just want to practice ballet.

10. Devilish

This is the perfect line between naughty and innocent flirting and it certainly gets the point across.
