>In a recent study from The Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender, and Reproduction at the University of Indiana, researchers found that adults who use emoji had more romantic and sexual interactions in the previous year and were more likely to get beyond a first date with a new partner. This link nods to two important things that emoji can add to short, text-based conversations: emotional texture and a sense of fun. Seeing joyful cartoon faces and colorful hearts is a different experience than reading “congratulations,” and a row of perfectly round peaches is different than a friend telling you that your new dress looks nice.

>> No.14129047

Emojis are just a good way of contextualising statements in a digital sentence, providing them with more emotional meaning than be communicated solely by text. There’s nothing ‘pornographic’ about the fact that being good at communicating makes you better at romancing someone, you fat deluded fuck. I’m not even American, either.

>> No.14129049

correlation != causation
while obviously you can't go wrong using emojis with a girl under 30, you also have to consider that the type of guy who uses emojis is probably more likely to be adjusted, sociable, and in college/highschool, and that type of guy has more sex. You would need a more involved study to accurately conclude the effect using emojis has on your chances with any given girl.

>> No.14129058

Right. It's not that using emojis gets you laid, it's that guys who are likely to get laid are more likely to use emojis. Emojis in and of themselves are not a deciding factor.

>> No.14129065

I’m volcel so I really don’t care.

>> No.14129071

It’s not an either/or situation, it’s a bit of both. Guys that get laid are more likely to use emojis, but equally using emojis does help with getting laid due to the warmth and emotional depth they can add to a message. Emojis are the digital equivalent to saying something with either a smile or a straight face, and that makes all the difference.

>> No.14129085

Lmao an eggplant emoji has never been a deciding factor for sex dude. Come on.

>> No.14129107

I believe the important purpose emojis serve can be just as adequately fulfilled by better writing.
For example saying "okay I'll see you there" is eh, saying that with some kind of smile or heart at the end is good, and saying "great I'm looking forward to seeing you there" is good too. I'm hoping that some maladjusted loners don't see this article and go on to blame their problems on the fact that they don't like emojis. You can very much get by just as well without them as long as you write in a personable way. Emojis are just a really easy way to make anything you write personable.

It's because it's the only way to give simple texts a sense of tone, and hence flirtatious tone. Gifs work just as well.

People like >>14129008 are just butthurt that logic does get chicks and the text in an entirely logical business like fashion. The fact is logic has never caused arousal, you have to flirt and using silly emojis is no different to irl flirt, it's about how you convey your intentions, not what they are.

I'll add I hate flirting by text, so if you are like me try to transition to calls and face to face when possible. Bold flirting is a million times more effective through a call than a text.
