AdvertisementPeople who use more emojis are more likely to land a first date and have sex than people who do not, a study by Kinsey Institute in USA said.
"We find that the use of emojis allows daters to communicate important effective information to potential partners which facilitates successful intimate connection and more romantic and sexual opportunities," stated the study.
However, the study conducted on 5,000 people in the US did not reveal which emojis were people using the most.
Eggplants and Donuts
But emojis conversations are not easy. Unlike in the case of language, emojis can confuse new users and novices. Like symbols, they are open to multiple interpretations.
The Times of India recently unravelled how people can interpret emojis. And the results are shocking.
"Those new to digital flirting, beware - purple brinjal (an eggplant) may not mean baingan bharta (an Indian dish) for dinner, and not everyone squirting teardrops is sad,” the article said.
An innocent vegetable emoji can be interpreted as a kinky message. An eggplant or a brinjal emoji can be interpreted as a penis, and a donut can also mean a vagina.

@suzyjeons This is preposterous! @TOIIndiaNews needs to get their facts right. =Rimming =Vagina— handsome boi (@xelocin) 1521536821000
The emoji flirting theory however proves and age old theory--that true intimacy is possible only when like-minded people are involved.
