    Brevity is key when texting and emojis are literally replacing entire words, even full thoughts and sentences.

    How far have we come since the days of William Shakespeare from poetically crafted sentences to acronyms? Now, we use emojis to express ourselves?

    Well, THIS far:

    Fast forward to 2019. Emojis’ popularity has only increased, with new emojis being released regularly.

    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. This was a new one for me.  Did he mean that he wants to meet for brunch tomorrow? Does he mean that he wants to be healthy? Did he send it by accident?

    Help Me understand these emojis

    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).

    Don’t get stuck in my situation. In case you need a handy guide or a refresher on hidden emoji meanings for online dating, I’ve compiled a list below:
