Bashfulness. Also: the perfect response to a compliment or to soften your own brazenly suggestive comment.
Akin to a bouquet of red roses, it’s timeless, classic, and also waaaaaaaay too forward for a light flirtation. That said, if you get it, feel free to slide into the DMs.
Signals FOMO (fear of missing out); three in a row is a perfect response to a nude or sext if you’re in a different city/state/country or stuck at work
Seal of approval. The polite response to a restaurant suggestion or the setup of some casual plans. Basically, “cool” but not “cool!” Use three in a row and it means “thank you!”

Basically, “What are you doing?”
