Never Date A Guy Who Uses the Heart Eyes Emoji

Or at least that’s what I’ve been told. I didn’t think much of it when the guy I was dating would end a text with the heart eyes emoji. It didn’t strike me as cute, but it also didn’t bother me. I was completely indifferent. Last week, I was filling in one of my guy... Read more »
