Australian singles reveal what your favourite emojis say about you


What do your favourite emojis say about you? Singles weigh in on the debate – and it’s bad news for anyone who sends more than one at a time

  • Aussie singles have revealed what the emojis you use say about your personality
  • One woman said using too many past your early 20s is an immediate turn off
  • Others said emojis should be used ‘sparingly’ and as an ‘accent’ for flirting

Singles have revealed what the emojis you text with say about your personality – and it’s bad news for anyone partial to sending more than one at a time.

The discussion began when relationship expert Louanne Ward posted in her Facebook group She Said He Said, asking members if they judge someone by their favourite emojis and whether using too many is a turn-off.

‘Given 60 percent of conversations these days are via text messages, are emojis an important part of a conversation?’ the Perth dating coach wrote.

‘Are they prone to be misinterpreted? Can using the wrong emoji be a dealbreaker?’

And it seems it can, with one woman admitting she is wary of anyone who uses too many emojis because she feels it’s a sign they are ‘struggling to keep the conversation going’.

Another said emojis should only be used ‘smartly and sparingly’ or as ‘accents for a flirty text’ once you are past your early 20s.

‘If you do not have the confidence to call and have engaging conversations then it’s a big red flag for me. Picture books are for toddlers,’ she added.

‘Please don’t tell a story with emojis. But hey, if you dig visual learning and are playful then you’re meant for your special someone – I’m not it.’

One man said he loves to use emojis, most often sending the wine, love heart and hands clasped together in prayer varieties.

But a second said he prefers to use words to properly get to know someone.

‘Better off talking about everything, what’s on your mind,’ he wrote.

It’s the latest debate on Ms Ward’s popular Facebook page, following a lively discussion about dating red flags last week.

Unlucky-in-love singles revealed the telltale signs that someone isn’t interested in a serious relationship – and it seems the most glaring one comes from yourself.

Ms Ward asked men and women if they can tell when someone just ‘isn’t that into you’ and the signs that show they are only spending time with you until someone better comes along.

One woman said the biggest red flag is when you finding yourself questioning whether the person is into you in the first place, arguing that a healthy relationship will make you feel secure from the outset.

An overwhelming majority said someone spending hours on their phone while they are with you is the most obvious giveaway that their attentions are elsewhere.

‘When he spends a lot of time on his phone when you’re together,’ one woman wrote, while a second agreed: ‘Always on his phone instead of being present.’ 

Another said warning bells should be ringing if the person you are dating rarely asks when you are free next and never seems interested in learning more about your life.

She also urged others to watch for suitors who avoid introducing their friends, which can often be a sign they don’t envisage a future with you. 

‘If they’re not pursuing you, it’s not going in the right direction,’ she added.

‘You should step back until all three of those things happen, then decide if you want to commit to them or be open to dating other people.’ 

Seven ‘just not that into you’ relationship red flags 

* Spending a lot of time on their phone

* Never making plans to meet

* Never asking questions about you or your life

* Avoiding introducing you to friends 

* Always saying they are busy 

* Failure to hold eye contact

* A niggling doubt or gut feeling that something isn’t quite right 

Others said failure to hold eye contact is a major red flag.

However Ms Ward insisted this may be due to nerves and ironically, a sign that someone is very much attracted to you.

‘I have been also been in positions where culturally keeping eye contact with a woman is considered rude. Certainly, a wandering eye is a completely different story,’ she replied.
