What does XX mean in messages and online?


XX is a digital way of sending romantic or platonic kisses. It is an extension of the single X (that represents a kiss) that people may use in messages, emails, and online.

Since XX can be romantic or platonic, you need to understand the context in which the person sent them to know the meaning. For example, if your grandma emails you XX, they are obviously platonic. However, if a girl you like from school texts you XX, she probably intends them to be romantic. Additionally, people often send XX accompanied by two "O"s (which represents a hug), as in XOXO, to send kisses and hugs.


You are so sweet, I can't wait to see you tonight! XX
Love you!
