Cool Emoticons and Internet Slang

I've noticed there are some people who don't exactly get emoticons. But that's ok, because here is a thread to describe them!!

The definitions are under or next to the phrase/emoticon.

O.O
o.O
O.o

They all mean "shock".



XD

laughing really hard


DX

really upset


:)

smile


;)

wink


:(

frown


:P

sticking your tongue out


^.^
^_^

Generally excited, or anxious, in a good way


>.<
>.>
<.<

Kinda like a "that's ridiculously stupid" type thing


:>

Cute, kinda funny smile


:/

Iffy, not very excited, anxious,


:'(

Cry


T.T

worn out because of stupidity


-_-
-_-"

Worn out because of idiocy


8)

Smile with sunglasses


>:(

mad




devilish













Funny acronyms:


LOL- laugh out loud

rofl- rolling on the floor laughing

lmao- laughing my (a word for butt) off

roflmao: combo of the above two

jk- just kidding

NVM- nevermind

NM- nothing much

HBU- how 'bout you

*u- YOU should know...XD

ttyl- talk to you later

These are some of the common internet slang and emoticons used on the forum. Hope all of you "oldies" or people who have been living under a rock will now understand the modern English language. XD

T_T means cry as well
^_^ is just a smile or happiness the up turned eyes ^ represent happiness.
O_O is shock o_o is a form of shock as well. O_o o_O is confusion or Wha
<_< >_> are shifty eyes.
>_< is annoyed kinda like ARG
-_- -_-'' are pretty correct though there is different ones to this as well
