When you use emojis in the online dating world, well, that’s when double and hidden meanings bring emojis to another level….



#Truestory: A guy I am currently dating

sent me an avocado emoji.

Immediately, I texted my friends and, of course, Googled. You might say “why didn’t you just ask him directly?” Let’s just say, sometimes, I’m too stubborn for my own good.

Anyways, Google turned up an interesting search result:



The word avocado is derived from

the Aztec word for testicles.



A-ha! Now it makes a bit more sense, given the context of what he had texted earlier (I’ll save the details for later lol).
