The extremely popular Kissing Face Emoji is a winking face blowing a kiss that is a heart. It is a very straightforward emoji and a guy definitely wouldn’t use it with a friend.
This emoji represents a very romantic feeling with the kiss, while the wink gives it a bit of a playful feeling. When he uses this emoji, he wants you to know he is thinking about kissing you. He could be texting you a kiss good morning or a kiss goodnight. As I mentioned earlier, a lot of guys are very vulnerable and don’t want to put themselves out there. He wouldn’t send this emoji if he wasn’t completely in love with you.
Kissing Face With Closed Eyes
The Kissy Face With Closed Eyes Emoji is very similar to the Kissing Face emoji I mentioned above. The only difference is with the Kissing Face With Closed Eyes Emoji, the eyes are closed instead of winking and there is no heart, just puckered lips.

Both of these are fantastic signs, and if he uses this emoji, he has really deep feelings for you.
The Kiss Mark Emoji is simply a pair of lips. It resembles what would be left on someone’s cheek if you kissed them after applying lipstick.
This emoji represents affection, romantic feelings, and sexiness. If he sends you this emoji, he is flirting with you. It is less bold than the Kissing Face Emojis but it is still expressing strong feelings.

It may be a little odd that I listed the Taco Emoji but I couldn’t skip over this one. Sometimes, guys show affection with food. They want to wine and dine you. If he sends the Taco Emoji, it means he wants to take you out for delicious food, and who doesn’t love tacos?
He is thinking about the two of you enjoying a meal together and he wants to win you over. If tacos are not your thing, be sure to let him know that you would love to go out to dinner with him, but you would rather enjoy something else. If he uses the taco (or another food) emoji, he could love you.
Remember wine and dine? Here is the wine. When he sends you the Wine Emoji, he wants to take you out on a date or he may want to stay in and cook for you. Since wine is associated with romance, this emoji is his way of being romantic. If you are a beer or cocktail girl, he may send one of those instead, but those don’t always hold the same value as the Wine Emoji.
The Beer Emoji may mean he is starting to like you, but he wants to take it slow and see how it goes. The Cocktail Emoji is similar to beer, the Cocktail Emoji doesn’t convey intimacy, it says he just wants to go grab drinks at a bar. Both of those are still a good sign, but when he sends you the Wine Emoji, he is saying he loves you.

The Diamond Emoji is similar to the Ring Emoji, but with a few differences. The Diamond Emoji symbolizes just a diamond as opposed to an actual ring. He could use this emoji for a few different reasons, but they all show his feelings for you.
When he uses this emoji, he is saying he wants to buy you jewelry and you deserve the best, diamonds. Another explanation this meaning could have is he wants you to know he compares you to a diamond.

Sleeping Face Emoji
The Sleeping Face Emoji is a face with an open mouth that looks like it’s yawning, closed eyelids, and zzzs on the forehead. This emoji is used when someone is saying they are very sleepy or about to go to bed.

If he sends you this emoji often, this guy loves you.
The 100% Emoji is a red 100% with two lines under it. This emoji means keeping it real, or in complete agreement. When he uses this emoji in your convos, he is saying he agrees with what you are saying.
He loves how smart you are and just simply telling you he agrees with you wouldn’t be enough. When two people agree on so many things, it feels like you have found your person. You get along incredibly well and he is telling you he thinks you are worth falling for. If he sends this emoji agreeing with you a lot, he may just love you.
Flexed Bicep Emoji
The Flexed Bicep Emoji is an arm with big muscles, appearing to be flexing. This Emoji means strength and power. It can also mean “flexin” (showing off). He will use this emoji when he wants you to think he is strong. Guys have always been known to show off for people they like.
They want you to view them as manly. Every animal in nature has a mating ritual, and this is no exception because being strong physically has been known to be an attractive quality in a mate. He wouldn’t care if you thought he was strong if he didn’t see you as a potential mate. If your guy is sending you this emoji, it probably means he has strong feelings for you.
Hugging Face Emoji
The Hugging Face Emoji is a happy face with open arms. This had to be in the list of emojis guys use when they love you because it’s a big one. Yes, you hug your friends and you also send this emoji to your friends, but if he is sending this emoji to you, it is unlikely it is just friendly.
He wants you to know he is thinking about hugging you. He is thinking about your body pressed tightly into his. Hugs are known to be personal and intimate, and between two people in love, can be electric. If he is using this emoji, he loves you.
Face In The Clouds
Last but not least is the Face In The Clouds Emoji. This is a face with open eyes, surrounded by clouds. The Face In The Clouds Emoji expresses being foggy-headed and a sense of bliss.
When he sends this emoji, it means he finds himself daydreaming about you. He can’t focus on his daily activities because he is so love-struck. His head is in the clouds. Giddy feelings have overtaken him and he is smitten. If he sends you this emoji, he is 100% in love with you.
