Emo stands for emotionally different, or just emotional.
They apply to a certain group of people, who are often self proclaimed losers, who go around a in big group, being rejected. The characteristics of emos are normally:
-a fringe which covers 3 or 4 fifths of the face, prferably dyed black. This is thought to be a reason they are attracted to their own genger; they cannot see.
-attention-seeking gashes on one or both wrists, normally to show off, but many just wear wristbands and fake depression.
-eyeliner. And how! As in, so much they cry black tears. Which happens alot. Though many emo boys prefer to wear a complete set of make-up.
- An array of non existant problems.
- Thick rimmed black glasses.
- Very tight black drainpipes, which look impossible but are actually so comfy, you forget everyones staring at you like emo scum.
- An obbsession with a) "The Nightmare Before Christmas" b)"Spongebob SquarePants" c)"lovemetal" (whatever that is) d)dressing as a cat.
However wierd they may seem, my emo friends are great (just watch out for the emotions). They like being called emos but not greebos, as it makes them over-emotional. So please, if you see someone dressed as a cat in the street, please dont yell, "HEY GREEBO!!! GOING TO YOUR GREEBO STORE, EMO-SEXUAL???"
Chav: Hey emo, go kiss a guy!!!
Emo: Don't label me! (runs off crying)
