If a picture is worth 1,000 words, a well-constructed emoji stream is worth a whole novel. But how can you be sure you’re speaking the international language of Japanese pictographs fluently? We’re here to guide you, with Emoji Prescription.
You woke up in an unfamiliar bed with an unfamiliar face, and now an unfamiliar number is pinging your phone. You need to respond, but how? With emojis, of course.
“I wasn’t on my A game last night.”
So it wasn’t your best performance and you want another shot. Happens to the best of us. Keep it real.
“I’m a little embarrassed – I was really drunk last night.”
You’re a bit embarrassed and care enough to want the other person to know.
“That was awesome.”
High fives speak volumes.
“Was sad when I woke up and you were gone this morning.”
Let him or her know you weren’t judging and that they didn’t have to rush off so quickly.
“I’m not a player, I just crush a lot.”
Don’t actually send this one.
“You’re on birth control, right?”
The nervous emojis asks if you take the no babies pill.
“Please please please don’t tell anyone at the office.”
Classic regrettable work hook-up?
