How would you use it, what does it mean for you?


Personally I see it as a 'wince of pleasure' a positive, playful thing. But people were saying it was an emoticon of disgust, which I don't see at all.

I wouldn't say 'disgust'. Hmm, I suppose like Profesh said, 'frustration' would be the closest interpretation to it.

But certainly not in a 'sexual nature'. How can it be interpreted as that?

Contextual bias.

I'd say frustration as well, although not of a sexual nature, although it could be seen as a constipated face... dont ask me why i said that though :d

It's saying, 'damn me for being in Australia middle of winter, should've come in the summer, spring at least' :p:

Him pulling the face when FiL feels a cool gust of wind as he walks up a street in Sydney.

Jks Anyway it could be worse, it's still hitting subzero temps here in ACT :|

it looks like a face when you have one of those moments where someone has been so stupid you feel the need to bang your head against something hard

Pain. Not serious, but significant enough to make you squinch up your face like that.

I think I just use it wrongly.

In future when I use it see my original post.
