  • It might depend on each person. Some peeps normally writes smileys, and when he doesn't, then it means something wrong.

    Others simply doesn't give a sh*t about smileys and ignores them anyway.

  • Texting may it be a mobile phone or email or even writing here on GAG is a very impersonal way of communication where no one can really sense with what intent / emotion the other person means things which is why we use smileys.

    I always use smileys even out here. A smiley changes the whole perception of the same statement to friendly from unfriendly if it sans the smiley. I'd even posted a question before the new GAG was launched on if GAG should have smileys.

    However, when texting there are times when we unwittingly don't put a smiley cause we are indisposed or something's on our mind etc (by 'we' I mean humans i.e. both guys & girls). An one off situation where a smiley wasn't reverted by a smiley begs to ask the sender regarding the same and not jump to conclusions :)

    There are times I send one smiley for a smile one for a hug & one for a kiss on a good news to my gf & she waits and then pounces after a few hours or days about how all her friends went off with 'ahhhhs' and 'ooohs' and dancing / party smileys while I just sent a 'drab' smile, kiss & hug lol (I'm a poker faced guy with a serious demeanor who displays his emotions more physically & I don't have the time for lengthy texts - she knows that) - just an example :D

  • Guys shouldn't be expected to use emoticons; they're more for chicks. It's worse if the guy uses emoticons in almost all of his texts.

  • I feel that emoticons if used too frequently by a guy seem kinda queer to be honest

  • I don't think it's bad. Some people just don't like using icons. I rarely use them too.
