  • every once and awhile I throw in a smiley face to show sarcasm or I'm happy. There are things that text can't message to the other person aswell as just a " :) "

  • Not at all. Although I don't text much, I have nothing against :), :-), or any other form of smiley face. Its a socially accepted norm. If you think about it, its like saying hi when you see someone

  • I realize I'm addicted to ;) and it gives people the wrong impression. But I use them because I feel :) is too generic.

  • I don't use them much. Only in the right situations and yes girls use them more...sometimes its almost as if its flirting.

  • I wouldn't feel lame, but I feel guilty using them. I don't know why but it feels as though putting a ":)" at the end of a text isn't smiley enough; the eyes kind of look dead and the smile is only at the mouth. When I'm grateful or happy with someone, I can never put just a ":)", I would feel mean. I must put a ":D", but then in some situations it looks a bit too happy. I wish there were something in between.

    You must be thinking how strange I am. I don't know what's wrong with me either. :/

  • I don't feel lame at all. When I use them I'm really smiling so it makes sense.
