There, ofcourse, are times when putting these x's aren't really appropriate. There is many more aspects of this that I wonder about now. Do you send the same amount of x's to either gender? Like some people do 'x x' or 'xxx' or 'xoxox'.. My guy would be right to question if something was wrong if I sent no kisses, as I do find if I'm angry at him I'm more likely to put no x's at all. I don't expect anyone to answer all of my questions above.For example, I don't send any to my higher up bosses at work, as they are male, and it would surely look unprofessional. Do we do that intentionally to show people we are pissed off? Basically just share the way you view kisses, and we'll maybe see if there's a pattern, or whether I'm just a freak LOL! I think everyone on Shys knows what my take is on xxx's lol. If I did, I must really want to kiss you xx Hi, what does the 'xoxo' mean then?But because I have been putting xxx's on everything for an entire year, it's become sort of a habit and I sometimes find my fingers uncontrollably hit the x button, sometimes putting more xx's than necessary or using it instead of a comma or period, like in the middle of a sentence xx which seems weird, as it looks like I'm kissing someone in between my sentences. I don't send x's to men friends, only female, and the number is random-ish, depends on how close I am to you and how many you put in the message to me, but I have never put more than 3 xxx's. yes, i think its cultural, greeks don't do that. at first i was kinda surprised with the xxxx's when i started texting my brits friends from on here but i got it soon.

At first I used to find it a bit, well, offensive is a strong term, but along those lines. And if they do, I start to wonder about their motives (this is all sounding crazy now! Like one of my work colleagues used to send me 3 x's.. A few weeks later I found out he was gay and suddenly I had a huge sigh of relief and it all made sense!

As to me I've just always put atleast one kiss at the end of every message. Now I don't care how many x's we put, because they clearly don't mean anything lol.

I couldn't understand why someone else wouldn't do that.. We've always sent 'x x' at the end of our texts, and he'd instantly think there was something wrong if I didn't do that. What a rambling load of rubbish I've spoken here.

To me the message looks blunt and unfinished without the x. Which leads me on to question more things, like is there different styles depending on who you're talking too? And then also do we control a lot of our emotions by how many kisses we send? Until, as I said, I spoke to someone else and learnt that they never used to use x's at all! I find I tend to know where I stand with someone if I go by x's. But how do cultures that don't use kisses survive?! I might sound crazy and as if I'm overthinking this, but it's only because I've made myself think about it to see what ideas it provokes.

A little while ago I was speaking to one of my friends from Shys about ' Kisses'.

The silly little 'xxxxx's' we put at the end of our messages..

Well I was intrigued to learn that apparently it is only really the UK that does this, therefore a cultural thing..

I had always thought everywhere did it :/ It suddenly made sense though as to why some people I know (mostly being from Shys, as this is such a diverse community) never put any x's at the end of their messages.. Like they are never consistent in the amount of kisses they send, so neither am I. Guys don't usually send x's, so I don't tend to put them.

I put a kiss quite randomly to some depending on message content.
