Everyone these days sends emojis in some form or another. Whether it's to friends, co-workers, acquaintances, or loves, the emojis you're sending tend to mean something. Most of the time that's easy to read with the emoji depicting that specific thing. However, when it comes to the heart emojis, that isn't the case. We never really understood why we had so many options for hearts, there are different colors and different style hearts.
Most people may think that they all mean the same thing, but that's not actually the case. The color of the heart actually does matter, because they all have a different meaning whether it's the person you send it to or what you're trying to say.
- Red heart — used in the honeymoon phase of a new relationship or showing a platonic friend support
- Black heart — use when it’s a symbol of deep, embarrassing, romantic love

- Blue heart — use in group chats when you have nothing to add, texting parents and random people
