Kisses at the end of every sentence/statement

Whether it's texts or forum messages, what's your honest opinion of people who constantly do this? Does it give you the warm and fuzzies? Or do you just wish they wouldn't?
Am I being unreasonable?AIBU

I do it all the time 😂 Nearly did it on a text to the roofer....
CrapBucket · 25/09/2022 23:39
I find it easier when people do, its become a form of smiling imo. You know the person messaging is being warm.

My bosses both send emails: requests with xxx on the end and I love it as I’m an anxious person. It softens the blow ahaha

I don't like it much on here, but don't mind it in personal texts at all.
I'll admit to very occasionally using a x on here, if a poster is clearly very upset and needs support. Many random xxx at the end of a post shows a lack of understanding of forum etiquette IMO, it's not the done thing on here.
However, it's not half as annoying as using !!! at the end of every sentence, or even worse, punctuating sentences with 'lol'. That really irritates me.

I don't mind with my own friends and family, in fact I have different 'set ups' for some of them- DSis always gets a single X, G and T get THREE x's, most others get nothing if I end on an emoji, two kisses if not
Forums and FB kisses though... baffles me, unless you/ they are offering condolences.
'So what's for lunch?'
'Lol beans and salad XX'
posts are strange (imo)

The only person I know who puts them at the end of every sentence uses them instead of punctuation. I think it makes her look a bit thick tbh. Judgy I know, but there we are.
I put one at the end of messages to good friends. But that's all. I wouldn't use them on a forum. I don't care if others do though.

I am consistent-ish.
DC get XXX or a heart emoji.
DP and I have our own agreed ending to messages which means 'all is good'.
ExDP (and father of DC) gets a full stop.
Every one else gets xx except work where I use a :-)
I largely ignore other people's kisses as they seem random.
applecartsonthehill · 25/09/2022 23:49
I don't like it, except from people I'm very close to, and even then not as punctuation.
I tend to think they're fluffy, and it goes hand in hand with using the word hun. Men don't do it, in my experience. These are strangers or acquaintances, and/or business transactions.

Texts to family including mil xxx
I hate you all on this forum so no xxx for you

It’s fine in the odd text to a few people in my life. It’s not fine on Facebook talking to randoms you don’t know or, in my case, from a potential landlady. Not even at the end of a text, just sent in reply. Eg:
me: thanks, I’ll get back to you with that info
wtf. I didn’t take the flat

People who constantly do it are ridiculous.
Or, and hear me out... maybe you're just a grump
angelsinstead · 26/09/2022 01:01
the worst is when people do it instead of punctuation xx I see this all the time from Facebook thickos xx they seem to think it’s an acceptable substitute for a full stop xx it drives me fucking mad xx
Adultchildofelderlyparents · 26/09/2022 01:05
I find it weird and irritating when it's overused. To me, an "x" means a kiss. So I add to a greeting/birthday wish, or to the last message of a conversation as a way of saying goodbye, in the same way that if I'd been with that person in real I might kiss on the cheek (or lips, depending!) as I greeted or left them.
When I get "x"s randomly added to messages I just think it's ridiculous.
onemorerose · 26/09/2022 01:07
What if someone you wouldn’t xx sends an xx to you? If it’s for my brows or someone I’m buying from I’d just xx them back. If it’s my doctor I’d be creeped out lol xx
CurlyhairedAssassin · 26/09/2022 01:12
not keen at all. I have 2 relatives who put kisses at the end of sentences instead of full stops. It weirds me out because If we have a difference of opinion on our group chat it just looks passive aggressive stuck at the end of something like that.
i loathe it really.
CurlyhairedAssassin · 26/09/2022 01:13
It’s the extra effort it takes too. What’s wrong with a full stop?
FurryDandelionSeekingMissile · 26/09/2022 02:18
It can come across as over-familiar/inappropriate or passive-aggressive in some contexts.
I don't find it warm at all, I just think it's a habit some people happen to have got into.
