In this day and age, dating involves having good texting game. Of course, you've gotta pick the right emojis. But which ones are the best and worst for finding a potential partner?

Clover (a dating app) is helping to solve this mystery. So they looked at more than 90 million messages from 3 million users to analyze the use of emojis on the app. 

For starters, you should try to include an emoji when sending that first message on a dating app. Clover found that women respond to an initial message that used an emoji 5% more frequently. Men respond to initial messages that include emojis 8% more of the time. 

So which emojis are best?

Maybe it's time to rethink sending another -- #emojis . . . . #Clover #CloverApp #dating #emoji #funny #women #men #message #lol #haha

Women like the face with the tongue sticking out, but they don't appreciate the eggplant or the bicep.
Sending the eggplant IS a bold move (unless you're joking).

Men like the faces that are smiling or laughing, but don't send them the diamond engagement ring or the poop emoji.
Seriously? I love the poop emoji, but maybe this is why I'm single?
