Smiley faces. Frowny faces. Hearts. Thumbs up. Laughing faces. Frogs. Aliens. Weird little men holding swords.
What am I talking about???
The wonderful world of emojis!
Maybe you love them, maybe you hate them, but chances are you see them almost every day.
And, I’m guessing they don’t make you think about sex.
(Ok, ok, except that eggplant…)
However, a recent survey by Durex–yes, the condom company–found that many people find it easier to talk about sex using emojis, rather than words.
And according to even newer research, it turns out that emojis do have a lot to do with sex!
No, the cell phone companies are not about to release a new bank of dirty emojis.
(Though that might be a pretty killer startup idea…)
Instead, science has something pretty incredible to say about the link between emojis and your sex life.
The Shocking Study That Found Men Who Use Emojis Have Better Sex Lives (In More Ways Than One)…
Believe it or not, a new study reveals that guys who use emojis land more dates… and get more sex.
Now, this data doesn’t come from just a couple of dudes in their parents’ basements testing out this theory.
No, this is real research done by psychologists.
What exactly did scientists find, and how can you put it to use?
One massive study looked at data from 5,327 single people in America.
These people ranged in age from 18 to 94, so nobody’s age group was left out.
What did the study find?
First off, not everyone is using emojis. In fact, a whopping 38 percent of people surveyed said they never use them, while another 29 percent said they don’t use them very often.
Meanwhile, 28 percent of the people in this huge survey said they use them a lot.
Three percent use at least one per text, and 2.5 percent use more than one per text.
Amazingly, the people who used more emojis went on more first dates than the people who used few or none at all—and, we can logically assume, had more sex!
But wait, if you’re still skeptical, keep reading.
Another Study Proves Emoji Users Get More Second Dates Too!
Another study was conducted on emojis and people’s dating and sex lives.
In this second study, 275 people participated. And while emoji use didn’t mean more first dates for this group, it did mean more second dates.
(If you know anyone who follows the no-sex-until-third-date rule, you know where this is going!)
Overall, these studies show that using emojis helps you connect in the online dating world.
Emojis can help you get off the screen and up close and personal.
Well, the scientists who conducted these studies were curious!
What Exactly Do Emojis “Say” To Women You Send Them To?
They asked people who used lots of emojis why they did it.
People gave a lot of reasons:
- To seem more relatable…
- To say things that were harder to say with words…
- To avoid misunderstandings…
In a nutshell, people used emojis to communicate better!
Now, how exactly can emojis help you communicate?
I mean, after all, they’re just weird little faces—they aren’t words.
And some of them, like the barfing face or the less-than-gentlemanly hand gestures, are downright rude!
Well, hot tip, don’t use the above emojis if you’re trying to land a first date, or a second date, or a one night stand. (Reserve those for your guy friends!)
Instead, use emojis to communicate openness, friendliness, or humor.
That’s right—I’m talking a big variety of smiley and laughing faces.
You can also use emojis to make it clear that you’re being flirty or affectionate.
Did you know if you send a heart emoji, some phones will feature a burst of hearts all over the screen when the text gets read!?
It’s not quite the same as showing up beneath her window with a dozen roses, but it sure doesn’t hurt!
Still not convinced?
I get it. I mean, for thousands of years human beings managed to reproduce successfully without emojis. You can’t use an emoji on the phone, or in face-to-face conversation…
…the way people used to date each other. (Geez, talking in person is so 1999!)
So let’s look at the nitty gritty behind why emojis help you score!
Here’s A Real-Life Example…
What’s the difference between texting and communicating with your voice?
Well, you might use the exact same words, but there’s a big thing missing…
Yeah. You guessed it. Your voice.
Human beings draw so many clues from voice and body language that aren’t available through text.
For example, sarcasm can be totally lost in a text, leading to a joke that lands flat.
Flirting can also be totally missed, and teasing might accidentally sound kind of mean. Uh oh.
Most likely, you might accidentally sound cold or disinterested.
Here’s an example. Let’s say you’re texting someone you hope to meet in person for a date.
As you’re signing off for the night, a one-word message gets a totally different feeling if you include an emoji:
Feel the difference!?
Emojis are an easy, low-stakes way to make yourself seem friendlier, funnier, flirtier, and more clever, and to avoid those awkward miscommunications.
And that’s especially true if you use THESE specific emojis, which I’ll show you below:
So Which Emojis Get You Laid The Quickest?
Certain emojis not only get you more replies, and dates… but they tend to get you laid faster too!
At first I assumed it was because of a psychological trick called “mirroring.”
Because girls use emojis more often than guys do… my theory was that if guys use emojis more, it’ll gain a girl’s trust faster.
They have 3 good points:
1) Women do use more emojis… but if a guy uses more of the “wrong” emojis, it can still come off as “try hard” or even “needy.”
(Like if you add a bunch of hearts or kissy faces at the end of your messages… it’s usually just too much.)
So it’s a very specific set of emojis that seem to work best to get laid fast.
2) Mirroring works best in person…
… because that’s when a woman can see your body language, tone, and other nonverbal cues.
3) There is one thing that women absolutely love more than good looks… money… or status:
And it’s a guy who knows how to have a good time… let loose a little… and who doesn’t take himself too seriously!
The science backs me up here too…
When you use these emojis in your profile… it conveys that perfect blend that most girls find absolutely irresistible.
Amazingly, this is only one of 3 major findings uncovered by this ground-breaking research… that will make your Tinder profile stand out from the pack, and get hot girls online to meet up (and hookup) A LOT faster.
If that sounds good to you… check it out right here:
P.S. Once I saw that guys who do this in their Tinder profiles get laid WAY more… I just shook my head. I couldn’t believe I fell for it so many times!
