emojis guys use when they like you or love you

Flirty emojis are an important part of modern dating due to the growth of dating apps and technology. Most of us communicate through our phones, and when guys are texting girls they’re attracted to, they throw in an emoji here and there.

You may not pay much attention to it, but if you do, you’ll notice that there are some specific emojis guys use when they like you.

The emojis to watch out for in texts

Emojis are the perfect way to be more expressive over a text message. But, there are also other purposes for emojis.

The disadvantage of communicating over text is that you don’t have the guy in front of you giving you flirtatious signs that you can see. All you have are their text messages. So, you don’t have much to work with.

Yet, emojis can tell you a lot about a guy, so it’s time you know what’s up and decode the emojis guys use when they like you.

Must-know emojis guys use when they like you or are in love with you

Let’s jump head-first into the world of emojis and the emojis guys use when they like you or are in love with you.

But just a word of caution now, don’t assume any guy who uses these emojis has a mad crush on you. Emojis are thrown around like words these days.

However, if he’s subtly hinting or blatantly flirting up a storm with you, chances are, the emojis aren’t as innocent and friendly as he may be trying to imply.

1. Heart-Eyed Emoji 😍

When does anyone ever use this emoji? There are usually only a couple of reasons, and most of them stem from an appreciation for something.

This emoji conveys love and infatuation as if to say you are in love with or crazy about someone or something.

If he’s using it in his flirty texts, he’s sending a pretty clear sign that he’s into you.

2. Red Heart Emoji ❤️

Oh mama, he’s into you. You don’t need to be a rocket scientist to figure this one out. The heart isn’t purple, yellow, or black: it’s red. Guys won’t throw this emoji around unless they want you to know how they feel. 

The red heart emoji is used in positive emotional contexts to express gratitude, love, happiness, hope, or flirtatiousness.

3. Angel Face Emoji 👼

This guy wants to make sure you see him as an innocent guy, but we all know he’s not. This emoji is all about showing you he’s as sweet as an angel. Are you going to fall for the bait?

4. Heart Kissy Face Emoji 😘

Well, if he’s using this, we all know he’s interested in making that kiss a reality. He could have used any other emoji, but instead, he chose this one. He wants to show you he’s more emotional than you think.

This emoji is a symbol of flirting, which often follows various compliments to someone the sender finds attractive.

Sometimes, a kiss emoji is also used as a part of a sarcastic and snappy message, including the replies to the compliments the person finds inappropriate. So, make sure not to jump to conclusions.

5. Too Cool Face Emoji 😎

It’s not easy texting a girl you like. Of course, men are just as insecure as women, and one way for him to hide it is through the too cool emoji.

The smiley face wears a pair of sunglasses, letting you know he’s calm and cool. Meanwhile, he’s freaking out inside.

6. Hugging Face Emoji 🤗

Oh yeah, we all know his end game. The hugging emoji, though is kind of creepy itself *why does it have such long fingers?* sends a pretty strong message that he likes you. Physical touch is a huge indicator of attraction.

This emoji is often used to show excitement, express affection and gratitude, offer comfort and consolation, or signal a rebuff.

7. Winky Face Emoji 😉

This is a classic way to be cheeky and flirtatious with emojis. The winky face emoji is a subtle way of making his point without being too forceful.

It signals him being playful, affectionate, suggestive, or ironic. So you better send him one back!

8. Relieved Smile Emoji 😌

He’s such a humble guy, and not looking to offend you. So at the end of his texts, he throws in the “relieved smile” emoji, making sure that he softens his message. Maybe he sent you a complimenting text but didn’t want to come off too strong.

9. Side Smirk Emoji 😏

Ooh, that’s a naughty little one, isn’t it? The side smirk emoji lets you know that he isn’t interested in just being friends. But, don’t assume that he’s looking for a relationship.

The side smirk is a pretty strong red flag for a fuckboy. So, tread lightly.

10. Giant Tongue Emoji 👅

Back in the day, we would stick our tongues out as an insult. But today, it has a different meaning. Of course, it could be used to talk about food, but if the conversation is flirty, he’s talking about his desire for you.

People send this emoji to flirt over text or while sexting, referring to oral sex. You can easily tell when the emoji is being used in a sexual context because typically, other “dirty” emojis will be paired with it

11. Blushy Face Emoji 😊

The blushy face emoji is very sweet. It’s not quite a smiley face and not too suggestive either. Whether you complimented him or he gave you one, he’s showing you his appreciation.

Guys who use this emoji are usually nice or shy guys, but some fuck boys are pretty great at acting nice, so be careful.

12. Devilish Face Emoji 😈

Did he text you something a little naughty? Well, not only is he testing the waters, but he’s letting you know he’s not ashamed of what he said. In fact, he’s standing by his words and isn’t into playing the innocent guy.

13. Flames Emoji 🔥

For him, you’re hot, hot, hot. You’re so hot, he doesn’t know how to handle you. If he sends you a series of flame emojis, he’s complimenting you.

Without words, he’s letting you know he thinks you’re smokin’ hot. [

14. Tongue Out Smiley Emoji 😝

This one isn’t necessarily as suggestive as the giant tongue emoji. When he makes a joke, he puts this one at the end to make sure you know he’s just kidding around.

It can variously convey a sense of excitement, silliness, cuteness, and happiness, as if saying, “Just kidding!”

15. Monkey See-No-Evil Emoji 🙈

Usually, this one goes after a suggestive text, he’s trying to test the waters and see your reaction. Of course, he doesn’t know how you’ll react.

To soften the blow, he uses this emoji to make him look more innocent than he really is.

16. Extremely Happy Face Emoji 😁

He’s not just happy, he’s extremely happy. This isn’t a commonly used emoji, as most guys don’t want to come off as too interested.

But, if he’s a confident guy who doesn’t care about hiding his emotions, he’ll use this one as much as he wants.

17. Smiling Face With Halo 😇

If someone is hitting on you on a dating app or texting you flirty messages, they may add this emoji to show how sweet and angelic they find you.

Alternatively, they may use the emoji to playfully deny their text’s more suggestive meaning.

18. The Drooling Emoji 🤤

The drooling emoji expresses mouth-watering. It can be used when talking about lust and longing.

Whether you desire a delicious meal, a nice dress, or that cutie sitting across from you in the coffee shop, you might look like the drooling face emoji.

19. Hot Face 🥵

Although the literal meaning of the emoji is hot as in the temperature *think summer day or a sauna*, it is flirtatiously used to represent physical attractiveness by the slang of hot, an informal language used to refer to someone as sexy.

So if a guy sends you this emoji or comments it on your photos, he’s definitely thirsty for you.

20. Face with Peeking Eye 🫣

A yellow face emoji with hands covering eyes and one or both eyes peeking through the gap between its fingers. This emoji is often used when people want to know what’s happening, even when they know they shouldn’t be looking.

So if you send a guy a sexy selfie or post one on your story and this emoji is his response, he knows he shouldn’t be looking but he just cannot help it.

21. Winking Face with Tongue 😜

A yellow face sticking out its tongue and making a wink often gives a sense of fun, excitement, wackiness, buffoonery, or joking.

Typically, it’s goofier than the 😝 emoji, but with the same meanings

22. Woozy Face emoji 🥴

The woozy face emoji means you’ve had a few too many to drink. It can also mean that the guy is tired, overly emotional, or plain confused. According to a popular meme, it represents the dumb face men make when they try to look sexy in a photo.

So if he sends you this, he probably wants you to think he’s playful and fun.

23. Smiling Face with Hearts 🥰

Smiling Face With Hearts has several hearts floating around its head, as if in a cloud of love. It commonly signifies warm and fuzzy feelings, especially feeling loved or being in love with someone or something.

If he uses this emoji with you, you know what it means.

24. Eyes Emoji 👀

The eyes emoji has many uses. It mostly serves to draw attention to something the user wants to highlight, especially in situations that involve drama and interpersonal tension.

But it can also be used suggestively like when you’re having a dirty conversation.

25. Eggplant 🍆

We all know that it’s not an actual eggplant. Yup, it’s a penis. Your mom may use it when talking about her new ratatouille recipe, but if a guy uses it, with sexual innuendo. He is in fact referring to his penis or the general topic of sex!

26. Peach 🍑

The peach emoji means a bum. It’s also a common emoji used in sexting. Which makes sense right? You have a nice peachy bum, and he’s complimenting you with the emoji!

27. Blushing Face Emoji 😳

What does this emoji mean from a guy? Well, the blushing face emoji is very similar to the angel one.

A guy might use this if he’s said something a little risky or cheeky and he’s seeing if he can “get away with it.” In many other cases, he may use it when you say something that turns him on and gets him flustered.

Emojis aren’t only used to add a little spice to the text. Guys also love using flirty emojis to show that they’re interested in you and hoping you’ll notice. Now that you know what they mean, what will you do with this information?
