😐 From a Crush

There usually isn't a ton of wiggle room for interpretation if you've just gotten a 😐 emoji from your crush. It's anything but joyous or positive, so unless you've just shared some bad news with them and you're sympathizing together, it's likely that they'll only be sending you this one if they're unimpressed or irritated with you. It would be wise to be thoughtful about what you say next.
