  1. what does -_-# mean? please ive been looking on the internet for like two hours now and cant find this a girl sent it to me after i wrote her a fairly intimate poem about us.

  2. It means something like what the fuck, are you retarded or something.. i feel sorry for you sir xD

  3. @Anonymus
    :1 is a neutral expression

    @Eric Duclan
    “.” could be a confused emoticon

    @angel
    -l- could be a long nose, or maybe a sword between the eyes…

    @Raymond
    .-. could be the same like ._. stare at something, expressionless

    @the dude
    …! 3 no plan, if the 3 stands for the upper half of an heart I had no idea what the dots and the exclamation mark mean in this context

    @Joseph
    it could be an embarrassed emoticon. *^O^* and with ~ maybe it jump or run away
