Whether you're celebrating a holiday (like Valentine's day or a birthday), want to express your love and devotion to your significant other or simply want to do a little SMS flirting, sending an e-kiss is the perfect way to do so. There are a number of ways to send a kiss via a text message, including emoticons (texted smiley faces) and various letters of the alphabet. It's likely the receiver will be very happy with your flirty text message.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Create a regular smiley face emoticon, only substitute an asterisk (*) for the normal mouth. For example:

    :- or :

    You can also make the eyes wink by using a semicolon, like this:


  2. 2

    Use an "X" in place of the asterisk for a bigger kiss:


    Or, to create a kiss even bigger than that, combine parentheses and an upper-case "I," which look like large, puckered lips:


  3. 3

    Blow a kiss by using these symbols:


    This is a normal smiley face with two fancy brackets creating an open mouth.

  4. 4

    Send a french kiss with the @ symbol replacing the mouth:

    :-@ or ;@

    If you want to get a little more racy with your french kiss, or create an emoticon that looks like two people french kissing, create the following:

    :-)~ or :-)~~(-:

  5. 5

    Use the "x" symbol to sign off your text message. It's typically used with the "o" and represents hugs and kisses. Sign off with one x or two x's, or stick to the basic xoxo pattern.

  6. 6

    Simply type out the word "kiss" in your text. It seems obvious, but the straightforward message will be surely leave an impression on the receiver.
