    i'm talking about in text messages, what is the correct etiquette? if someone puts a x at the end of a text should you put one too? what if you don't- will it cause offence? will they even notice? and what if it's a colleague or someone you manage? would it be professional to do it if they've done it to you?

    I'd love to know the answer

    Went back to university to do a law degree a few years back and everyone puts x at the end.... so yeah I tended to do it back so as not to offend

    I think it's just a nice friendly signoff these days

    ..but at work I don't even if a younger member of staff includes one

    uhhhh what?

    I text all the time and have no freaking idea what you are talking about!

    And what the enemy will see? They will see the flash of our cannons, and they will hear the ringing of our swords, and they will know what we can do! By the sweat of our brow and the strength of our backs and the courage in our hearts! Gentlemen, hoist the colors!

    It depends, if a girl puts a x on a text than I put one back.... me and my (boy) mates always put XxXxXxX on the end, as we have a running joke about girls always putting kisses after everything!

    I always put one now as a gesture. Dh does not get one though if he has been naughty
