How to use heart suit emoji

Despite the strange naming of this emoji, the symbol can be used in more ways than to suggest that you are having a cheeky poker night. In fact, the symbols primary use is to indicate love or affection towards something - either in a romantic or a platonic fashion. You could send the symbol to your crush, react to a picture of a cute puppy with it or you could post it to your group chat just to show someone they are loved. Often, the Heart Suit Emoji is enough to show your adoration, but you could chain some words together to enhance the message further. Let’s say your friend sends you a kitten so cute that it practically melts your heart. Of course, you could just curl up into a little ball due to the cuteness overload or you could react: That is totally adorbs♥️
