what does ~~ mean in text

It pretty much shows affection, lighthearted teasing or friendliness. Can be associated with aegyo. Here are a few places where I use it:

아빠~(Dad~) is pretty much the equivalent of having the connotation of Daddy. Kind of emphasizes the image of Daddy's little girl or so XD
에구~(Oops~/Ouch~) gives a lighter weight to it. For example, if a friend says that she tripped over a chair, I'd probably say that jokingly as if to tease her. I wouldn't use it in serious situations of course.
[친구/남친]야~([Friend/Boyfriend’s name]) would be a form of aegyo. Think of aegyo as girls flirting/showing affection by acting cute. It's used for friends, family and used among couples. I tend to use it often with close people I haven't spoken with in a while - it helps get rid of the awkwardness a bit.
헤헤~(hehe~) would be a bit of aegyo mixed laughter, sometimes with a bit of lighthearted sheepishness as well depending on when it's used.
>ㅇ< ~♡ is again kind of aegyo or just a show of happiness. Sometimes it's used in emoticons to show whistling like:
ㅇ3ㅇ~
어떻게 했게~?(So what do you think I did~?). In this case, it kind of draws the sentence out like the other commenters mentioned, creating suspense. Again, the teasing tone is still there, as if I'm considering whether to tell the other person the answer or not.
그러게~(Yeah, you're right~) again draws out the phrase a bit and adds a playful tone. Less of a gossiping tone and more of a “I know right?” kind of tone.
Honestly, just think about it as something you add to the back of sentences to make your words seem light or teasing.
