Guys Who Use Smiley Faces?


#1

Who here thinks it's gay/feminine when a guy uses smiley faces?

:wink:


#2

I think they’re lame and try to use sparingly, but it’s hard to suggest sarcasm or something similar over the internet without sometimes.


#3

to another guy, hell yeah it is.

However I do it when talking to girls, especially ones i’m interested in. This is only to make it clear when i’m joking around because I can be really sarcastic. I don’t want them thinking i’m a complete asshole (although that seems to work for a lot of guys…)


#4

Is there anything that’s not gay for a guy to do?

Hey man, is it gay if two chicks suck my dick while I drink beer and shoot animals and watch porn?

Is it gay porn?

I think smilies and whatnot are important because it is so difficult to judge tone on the webernetz. They should be used judiciously - stefanogym’s posts are an example of what NOT to do.

No … it might be gay to watch porn depending on the genre of porn you’re watching … nttawwt

I personally don’t think there’s anything wrong with smiley faces … as stated earlier they convey sarcasm through text … something which could be misconstrued and might cause problems can be easily avoided just by adding a :slight_smile: … i mean is it gay for a guy to want pussy? I personally love the poon, and if adding a smiley face in a text furthers that cause then bring it the fuck on…

i use smiley faces

they help take some of the edge off of what i say

example, an AIM convo like 2 secs ago

Me: wanna make me some waffles?
Her: no
Me: you suck
Her: you wish
Me: no, i wish you blew
Her: lol
Me: alright, so let me know when you wanna make some waffles or do the blow thing :wink:

Perfect example.

yea

In person people can’t tell when I’m kidding. So it’d be out of character for me to use smileys in text. Truthfully I’d rather let a girl wonder if I’m being serious. If I’m going to say something so offensive that it needs a smiley, it’s probably better left unsaid.

On the flip side, I find it irritating when girls don’t use smileys. In plain text alone, they’re impossible to figure out.

I :frowning: at you for questioning smilies.

That’s hurtful, man.

And for all you smiley users out there, don’t act like you didn’t feel at least a little bit feminine when you first started using them. I won’t debate their usefulness for appearing lighthearted over the interwebz, but seriously, they’re gay. Admit it.

Haha. You like it rough, huh?

I don’t care how many winky faces you make, there’s no way to joke about a girl’s weight, eating habits, or anything remotely connected to those things.
