x Emoji Hello! What does x emoji mean in the UK? To be honest, I don't know what it means in any other country, either. I have read it can be a dizzy face, a kiss, or a face when you don't want to talk. What is it in the UK? Thank you.

In the UK, an x at the end of a message is a kiss. Two xx is two kisses, and so on. It's not an emoji, though. We've been putting x's at the end of our letters and notes for decades - long, long before the advent of emojis. It's very common. I'd say that 90% of the messages I get from my friends and family have an x or several x's at the end. It's simply an affectionate sign-off, especially among women and girls.
