I Use Too Many Smilies

    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 :(

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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

    Indeed we create way too many rules around sexuality. As long as people stay safe that's the main thing and that it's equally pleasurable :)
