I Use Too Many Smilies

    I Like Them

    I like smilies - sometimes I can write something that may be taken the wrong way, by adding a smily I can let the person know it was meant in jest or if I'm being sarcastic!

    You Can Never Have Too Many Smiles

    Yeah it's true I use too many smiles. And here are some examples of these so called smiles you see. And here's another  and how about one more for the sad people out there, a smile can always brighten somebody's day.  Peace

    Like, Whoa

    I use way too many smilies when I chat online. I even add them in the rare instance that I write a real letter.

    SMILEY Stays

    I use too many Smilies.  I really wish there were even MORE Smilies to choose from.  I just love these little guys.  I don't consider my story complete until I add Smiley.  It's like a signature only cuter.

    Now I Feel Dumb!

    I am always so self-conscience of my smiley usage. Especially when the person I am typing to doesn't use any! It makes me feel childish and I always worry they are on the other end thinking I am.... Stupid smileys :(

    Gender rules are stupid. If a guy wants to do ballet or likes boy bands, it's fine, and if a girl likes karate and scream music then it's fine too!
