A group of white, mostly middle-class well-off kids who find imperfections in there life and create a ridiculous, depressing melodrama around each one. They often take anti-depressants, even though the majority don't need them. They need to wake up and deal with life like everyone else instead of wallowing in their imaginary quagmire of torment.

is used to decribe a variety of persons who, in a sense, create their own self destruction. To their own demise they try to stay away from so called "pop culture" while forming their own "uniqueness". Unfortunately they all derive upon the same style, which leads to them all looking and acting the same way. Their absolute resentment towards mainstream media and culture froces a semi-subculture in which the aforementioned transduce themselves into a contained category. Altough previous definitions covered a wide variety of definitions, the typical emo character will prove to only show his/her "emoness" when cavorting with people or persons who agree with their own tastes and sentimental passions. Also you must listen to semi- coroded late 80's early 90's punk knock off bands.
"Hey that group of people look like emos because they all have a common lame taste in really shitty music that while trying to sound original and unique, end up sounding exactly the same."

an emo is an usually an emotionally disturbed person usually teenagers as younger generations dont get the same pressure and adults can rationalize the situiation. for example i felt very lonely and it seemed i was the only one that felt that way. i just started cutting myself and i already have everything else. i already listened to gothik music and wore lots of black with black convo's. back to the subject however...
im emotionally disturbed. i will become emo. i like the emos anyway.

White person who cuts themselves or always wears black. They are friendless and cry. Most take pills and want to kill themselves. Most are attracted to the same sex.
Conversation of Mr. and Mr. Emo:
M: I WANT TO DIE
K: I want to cut myself
M: SO DO I
K: I want to make out with you
M: SO DO I
K: Let's cut each each other while making out
M: Ok, I love you
K: So do i
M: Let's take pills
K: Sure
5 minutes later
M: I WANT TO DIE
K: so do i
M: Let's kill each other
K: ok
