Effective communication nowadays is pretty darn easy. You can order a pizza without talking to someone. You can bail on dinner without catching the disappointed guilt trip in someone’s voice.
And you can tell that special someone exactly how you feel about them, and what you want to do to their body later that night, over texts.
You can even say I” love you” in emojis without your officemates knowing a thing.
Sure, we were able to do something similar with pager codes back in the ’90s, but that made people think you were a drug dealer — or worse, a surgeon. *Shivers*
If you know your way around your smartphone keyboard, you can find plenty of different ways to say “I love you” (and some dirty things, too) using nothing but emojis and a few special characters.
Of course, texting the same old thing over and over again can get a little boring. Thankfully, some genius invented emojis (I think it was Phil Emoji, but I’m not sure) and now we can sum up our exact feelings with the help of an anthropomorphic cat in a few easy clicks. Sigh…
Even that can get a bit stale, so let’s mix it up a bit, shall we?
Here are 15 fun ways to say “I love you” in emojis (and special characters).
1. “I love ewe”
Yes, female sheep (ewes) do not have horns, but you get the point.
2. “Te quiero”
This one is for you Spanish speakers. Oh, and that’s not coffee, it’s tea.
3. “I love you”
Oldie but goodie. The beeper code for “I love you” was “143,” the amount of letters in each word.
4. “I’m bananas for you”
You see, there’s 4 “U”s and, um, bananas.
5.”You’re OK in my book”
The book is mine and “UR OK” is in that book.
6. “I love you”
This one doesn’t take much explanation.
7. “I love you”
I don’t have to explain this one to you. Or anyone else for that matter.
8. “Kisses to you”
There’s the guy kissing. There’s the number “two” made with fingers. Then there’s the guy pointing at you.
9. “Checking you out”
There’s a check mark plus “i” and “ng.” And there’s a guy pointing at you and a guy doing the international symbol for out. (These can’t all be great.)
10. “I’m sweet on you”
It’s a u-shape made out of sweets. And, yes, I was born in the 40s.
11. “I would die for you”
A tree is made of? Wood. There are dice. And then there’s “U.” I was channeling Prince a little on this one, bae.
12. “I’m gonna french your… cat”
The eyes are back plus a gun attached to the letter “A.” The French flag. And a smiling kitty. (This has hit a new low.)
13. “I’d bone us”
While some sort of meat is involved in the middle one, it’s mostly a bone. And that brings us to the “U.S.” flag. (I’m really trying my best here.)
14. “Sweet boobies, honey”
You have sweets. And a guy saying “boo.” And after a while a honey pot. (And I’m so so sorry.)
