Text Emoticons

Hello folks,

with creative text emoticons you may express your actual mood, without a written word in chats, mails or messages.

There’re plenty of creative text emoticons, use western style text emoticons :) or Kaomojis (^_^).

I’ll show you the common used emoticons from both styles. I added a description but most of them you can use in several ways.

Copy them directly to your online communications or build new text emoticons out of them.

Thank you Professor Scott E. Fahlman, for the creation of the very first text emoticon. <3

  • Help:
    To find text emoticons you may use your browser’s find function
    (usually CTRL+F on a PC or CMD+F on a Mac). Just type the expression you’re looking for.

    Mark the text emoticon you want to use. Use keys (Ctrl+C on a Pc or Cmd+C on a Mac) for copy and paste it with (Ctrl+V on a Pc or Cmd+V on a Mac).

    Bookmark the site and share them with your friends. So you didn’t miss the text emoticons for further communications.

  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
