Interestingly, 33% of the participants admitted to engaging in at least one foodie call.
The researchers found the use of emojis helps maintain connections after the first date and resulted in more sexual behavior.
"Those who used emojis more with potential partners prior to the first date were more likely to have engaged in intimate behaviors with that person, and were more likely to have established a relationship with this person," the researchers concluded.
While there is now evidence that using emojis will boost your dating odds rather than sink them, the researchers did caution more research has to be done.
The studies look at people sending emojis but it didn't gauge how those emojis were interpreted by the receiver.
Next time you second-guess ending a conversation with an emoji, think again.
