How to use heart with arrow emoji
The Heart with Arrow emoji is often used to indicate that you have fallen madly in love and is a good option when trying to describe that sudden lovestruckness. Let’s say you meet someone new and you pretty much can’t stop thinking about them. You could confide in a friend, using the lovestruck emoji as a way to demonstrate your desire. An example text could be something like: Gah can’t stop thinking about them 💘 A less popular use for the emoji is to indicate that a statement has ‘pierced your heart’. In a sense, this works in a similar fashion to the Broken Heart emoji - but is made that bit more brutal with an arrow embedded in the meat of the organ. Let’s say you are having a chat with a friend but they proceed to devastate you with a brutal statement. Simply responding with the Arrow in Heart emoji is a surefire way to show how brutal said statement was.
