🤦 in General Usage

To understand exactly what 🤦‍♀️ means when you receive it will depend on the context and the subject being spoken about at the time.

🤦‍♀️ From a Crush

If your crush just dropped a 🤦 or 🤦‍♀️ emoji, chances are that they're feeling super foolish at the moment. Whether it's from a guy or a girl, this emoji can be used more personally to signify embarrassment after acting forgetful or doing something disappointing. If they text it to you, chances are that they feel vulnerable enough with you to admit when they've made a mistake, which can be a very good sign.
