How and When to Use the Dotted Line Face Emoji
- If you’re referring to someone, or yourself who’s slowly disappearing or going out of sight, you can use this emoji. For instance, “I don’t know what he’s going through but he hasn’t called me in two weeks now ” or “I don’t feel that included these days, man ”.
- In a similar framework, you may apply this emoji as a reference to fading away as well. Like, “I feel like I’m fading away “, “Oh, that trend faded away in the 2000s ” or “I think humanity is slowly fading away “.
- This emoji is one of the very few emojis that talk or represent mental health and mental illness. If you think about it, fading away on a drastic mental level is very close to feelings of depression. Hence, this emoji can be used in such a delicate and sensitive sphere as well.

- You could also say that you’re introverted without having to use the words with this emoji.
