Commonly Misunderstood Emojis & What They Really Mean


These days a lot of people will bypass using real words and instead try to express themselves with emojis, but it turns out, a lot of people are probably using those emojis all wrong. 

My Domain has just come out with a list of the most misused emojis, along with what they are really meant to be used for, and you may feel a little embarrassed after seeing what you’ve been incorrectly texting all this time.

Common misused emojis include:


Don't send this to a poorly friend! My Domaine has compiled a guide to the most commonly misused emojis, including the Love Hotel which is often mistaken for a hospital 

The Love Hotel – It looks like a building with a H on the front, and a pink heart to the side, which some people have used to represent a caring hospital, or possibly a symbol for "home is where the heart is,” but the truth it's the symbol for a hotel that rents rooms by the hour for trysts. 


An egg in a pan is meant to represent cooking in general and not just frying breakfast

Cooking – The frying pan with an egg emoji is often used to convey just that, frying an egg, but the reality is it’s meant to represent cooking in general. 


Shooting star? No, if someone sends you this emoji it means they're feeling dizzy

Dizzy –The star at the end of a crescent light is often used to represent a shooting star, but it’s actually there to represent the feeling of being dizzy. 


This emoji looks a lot like anger, but it is in fact mean to represent pride and disdain

Proud – That round face with steam blowing from the nostrils is most likely used to represent angry, but it actually represents proud, but not in the good way. Instead it means “proud and disdainful" as in "I'm right and you're wrong."


Rather than indicating upset, this one actually means you're feeling relieved 

Relieved – That face with what looks like a tear on one side isn’t supposed to be used to express sadness or being upset, instead it’s actually a sad but relieved face.


Don't use this symbol to express a lack of care, as it actually represents openness and hugs 

Openness – You may have used the two hands side by side with the palms facing outward emoji to say “whatever,” but in truth it’s supposed to represent openness.


This supposedly sassy woman is actually a helpful clerk at an information desk

Sassy Woman – That cheerful looking woman raising one outstretched palm isn’t actually the sassy gal as you may think. It’s actually part of the information desk person's emojis and represents a women who’s here to help you.
