I don't get this.

My boyfriend and guy friends do this. Whenever I'm taking to them on facebook chat, or over text, and I don't put smiley faces behind something I'm saying...I'm a big smiley face person..then they assume I'm mad? I don't understand that. Sometimes I 'm just feeling too lazy to type the extra face:). Why do they do that?

  • Sounds like their problem... not yours (no smiley on purpose)

  • Thanks!..and yeah, I don't understand it. It's just a symbol, not an indicator of my mood.

  • Seriously? All the men I know think those smileys are stupid and girly. May you should just stop chatting online with them if it's going to start an argument.
