O I think symbolizes a whole, two souls come together in one, an X has the shape of lips, a kiss can be. xoxo can mean hugs and kisses.

IrelynnRocksYeah
you make an O when you wrap your arms around someone. when you pucker your lips, the inside corners make an X.

O symbolizes something surrounding something like a hug.

Because people don't understand that O is the shape of your mouth and X stands for wrapping your arms around a person... that's why.

REALLY WORKS! TRY IT OUT! 1. Say ur name 10x 2. Say ur mom's name 5x 3. Say ur crushes name 3x 4. then paste this to 4 other quizs, if you do this your crush will kiss you on the nearest friday! But if you read this and did not paste this, then you will have very bad luck and ur dad might lose his job
