How to use broken heart emoji

The most glaring use for this emoji is to express the end of a relationship or your sadness at the end of said relationship. However, the emoji doesn’t need to be used in such a serious way and can be fun to use in a steady and loving relationship. Let’s say you are having a playful argument with your significant other and they disagree with your choice of Doritos for snacking later. They claim that cool original is just a lame ready salted - obviously the only reaction is to show your broken, bleeding heart over such a statement. The Broken Heart emoji can also be used in less serious cases where you don’t actually have a broken heart - but are still saddened by the news. Your favourite brand breaking up, your local Italian restaurant closing down, a new videogame you were looking forward to getting cancelled - all of these could be candidates for the Breaking Heart emoji, showing you are very sad and distraught by the news.

History of the 💔 emoji

Approved in Unicode 6.0, the Broken Heart was added to Emoji 1.0 in 2015 and was also joined by the Red Love Heart emoji.
