Who uses ?
When this emoji is directed at people, it’s often because the person using this emoji greatly admires them. It could appear on retweets of a particularly poignant celebrity quote. Non-romantic love in general favors this emoji. It’s a fantastic way to cheer people on and let them know they’re cared for. One way to do this is to use it in response to a particularly beautiful picture. It could be part of a comment on a really well-framed selfie on social media. It could also be about how much the commenter loves an outfit, makeup, outfit, hairstyle etc., be it their own or someone else’s. It may also be used when romantic love is involved and someone wants to express how much they adore their partner, since hearts often carry such a meaning.
The smiling face with heart-shaped eyes emoji is also great for reactions to animals, landscapes, and foods, just to name a few more categories.

They could also use it in an instance where they love something so much that they want it for themselves. People also favor it when reacting to pictures of a baked good or meal, or scenery from a beautiful place, which they might want to experience firsthand because it’s so delicious-looking or breathtaking.
This emoji is often used in responses to exciting concepts, too. Maybe someone’s favorite musician has just announced that they are coming to a fan’s city. It could also be used as a response to an inspiring quote posted on social media, or kinds words from a friend or follower.
