Okay ladies, I need some help here.
In the age of electronic everything, people are talking less and less. No, I don’t miss pointless phone conversations. There’s nothing worse than having one of those late night ‘are you asleep?’ tennis match convos. My main issue with the technological takeover is the issues its caused with dating. People don’t meet while out and about, they get poked…on facebook.
I’m not innocent I text/tweet/facebook/tumblr/skype like everyone else. Call me a social networking floozie if you must. In a city like ATL, social networking is a must to keep in touch with all thats going on! As of late, I’ve been hit with a phenomena this internet queen can’t quite sort out. So, my multiple inboxes have been bombarded with messages riddled with smiley faces…from guys. Now I’ve been known to use an emoticon every now and then, but I’m a female. The first time I had a guy text me a smiley face I could do nothing more than squint my eyes, tilt my head to the side, and make the Scooby Doo confused noise. I really didn’t know how to react. Now, these cheesy faced images haunt my dreams I’m getting them so much.
I use smileys for excitement or when being goofy, not in flirty texts/tweets. I thought thats what the winky face was for. Am I violating the rules of e-flirting? IDK. WHAT DO THESE FACES MEAN?!?! Are you happy you talking to me? Are you putting them in these messages as fillers because you have nothing to say? Is it a nervous smile? A naughty one? Or a friendly one? Clarify please, sir!
