As you know, different types of flowers mean different things. Apparently, so does the type of heart emoji you send to someone.
For instance, a yellow heart emoji does not convey the same message as a red heart emoji.
Of course, you can use emojis as you like, but since you are curious to know the original intended meanings of various heart emojis, let’s get started.
1. Flat Red Heart
You might confuse this to the classic heart emoji, but it’s very different. This heart is actually part of a suits of cards.
You can use it when you cannot find the typical red heart emoji. However, using it frequently for this purpose is just wrong.
2. Anatomical Heart
They have recently come up with the anatomical heart emoji. This emoji is great for medical students or anyone with a sense of humor.
However, be careful not to use it for your new relationship or older folk like your parents or grandparents. It won’t make a whole lot of sense.
3. Green Heart
First of all, know that a green heart has nothing to do with caring for the environment. Instead, you can use this for your acquaintances and friends of friends.
4. Two Static Pink Hearts
This is a really flirty emoji that is great when dating someone. That means it’s highly inappropriate for someone you are about to break up with.
5. Red Heart
Most people consider this the most romantic heart ever. However, it is also pretty basic, and it quickly gets old.
So, while it can mean a lot during the honeymoon phase of your relationship, it doesn’t make too much sense after you have started dating.
6. Orbiting Pink Hearts
When you are really into someone, this is the perfect emoji to use. The emojis are most appropriate when having a heavy conversation, such as showing you have forgiven or seeking forgiveness.
You should certainly not use this emoji with platonic friendships.
7. Blue Heart
This heart has bro vibe to it. Otherwise, this emoji implies that you don’t have a very deep relationship.
You can therefore use it for group chats or even when texting your parents. Fortunately, it’s difficult to use this emoji in the wrong context.
8. Black Heart
The black heart emoji is ironic and a great way to show dark humor. It also represents a deep and romantic love.
This is the kind of emoji you should use to send to your soul mate or twin flame. Definitely don’t use it for someone you are casually dating.
9. Purple Text Box Heart
There is literally no justification to use this emoji. There are many other options at your disposal.
10. White Heart
The white heart emoji is relatively new. It has a sterile look and a little bland, but some people use it to represent pure love.
Notice that this emoji is very different to the heart outline emoji.
This emoji is great when showing support after someone loses their loved one and in scenarios that have monochrome décor.
11. Heart With An Arrow Running Through It
Many people think this emoji represents new love. However, this emoji is more suitable for your long-term partner to let them know there is no one else for you but them.
You should not send this emoji to a platonic friend.
12. Yellow Heart
This gentle heart is great with family members and any relationship with no chance of turning into a romantic engagement. That makes it ideal for Mother’s Day and new relationships where it might be too soon to say what you truly feel.
Therefore, don’t use it with anyone you are romantically involved with.
13. Purple/Violet Heart
All because of Ty Dollar Sign’s PurpleEmoji, this heart is now considered a horny emoji.
So, you have to be careful when using it as things might get very awkward if misused. You can use it to booty-call, but avoid using it on anyone you are not even romantically involved with.
14. Sparkling Heart
This is a neutral emoji that is cute, innocent, and full of passion. It is a great way to show appreciation without too much pressure to display your emotions.
15. Brown Heart Emoji
This emoji is meant for black and brown people. They use it to show solidarity. In other words, brown or black people can safely use it, but it would not be as great when used by a white person.
16. Broken Heart
In a serious context, this emoji can cause a lot of problems. So, only use it when your partner has slightly disappointed you to give them a hard time.
If you are actually broken-hearted, then avoid this emoji.
17. Pink Growing Heart
The growing heart is great when making an apology, and pretty unsuitable in every other scenario.
18. Ariana Copy Paste Heart
The outline emoji is not easy to come by, and it’s often used as a copy-paste heart.
It is great when showing your pals how much you care about them, but don’t try to use it for casual relationships or relationships you would like to be casual about.
19. Heart Exclamation Point
This is a fun heart that’s appropriate for someone you have just met but are not completely in love with. It can work with friends and family as well.
You should not use this during serious chats.
20. Orange Heart
This is a noncommittal expression of love. Basically, it’s a coward’s heart.
This is the kind of heart that shows you don’t have a real relationship. So, using it with someone who means more is not right.
21. Pink Heart With A Ribbon
The emoji is a great way to let someone know they have your heart. It is only suitable for someone you are absolutely in love with, and it can get awkward if those feelings are not reciprocated.
22. Vibrating Pink Hearts
A pulsating heart demonstrates your appreciation for the other person. This heart is excellent when apologizing or confessing romantic love.
See! There is a reason they make so many heart emojis.
So, the next time you decide to use one, you will at least know what you are saying from the person’s perspective getting your message.
