Actually... maybe my guy is the odd one out (most likely) but he didn't know what I meant when i sent him a text that was just an X. He asked me what is this? And I said a kiss and he replied.. polish kiss =:)

He always sent his kisses using that symbol for the first few months and now he just does xxxx's like everyone else.

Maybe its just him tho?!

xxxxx

The same

They never used to. In the early 1980's, in Moscow, I used to write letters to my Polish girl friend and she asked what it was? After she knew, she too used it but as a kiss, to the Poles, it was unknown.

ok isnt "o" a kiss as it kinda looks like lips whereas "x" is like arms giving a hug?

The other way around. X=kisses O= hugs.

History lesson time for X as a kiss.
Way back in the days of snail mail, teenagers would put a X across the envelope seal of a love letter to discourage the courier (usually a friend) from opening the envelope to take a peek. (There was no guarantee that the envelope could be re-sealed with the X accurately realigned). This was known and still is, as 'sealed with a loving kiss' hence the S.W.A.L.K. sometimes also used. Thus, the origin of the X. But we are talking 50's and 60's teenagers here. ;)
