Normally a 15-17 year old teenager. Considers themselves to be much more in touch with their emotions than anyone else; whereas they really just feel sorry for themselves. Most emo's will claim to be depressed, or simply misunderstood. They think they are unique, and fail to realise that they actually look like half the teenage population of south england. You can recognise an emo by looking for these general characteristics:
SKINNY JEANS (both boys and girls) The tighter the better. If an emo can hardly walk because of their jeans, then they've reached optimum emo status.
STRIPEY JUMPERS. Normally black and grey. If you're a boy, this should again be worn as tightly as possible. Breathing comfortably is a luxury you may have to sacrifice.
TATTY CONVERSE. Usually drawn on, as most emo's regard themselves as artists.
BLACK LONG HAIR COVERING ONE SIDE OF YOUR FACE. Vision can be compromsised for style as an emo. Try and make it as greasy as possible.

Finally, emo's MUST look down on everyone else, accuse them of being uncreative, judgemental, and the sole cause of their 'depression'. If you're a hardcore emo you'll cut yourself occasionnally. If you're not, then you at least have to pretend you do.
EMO: I wouldn't expect you uncreative facists to understand my art. It's a statement. I'm all alon in this world, all I have is my poetry and my paintings. I am destined to travel through the misty and cold fog of existence alone and cold. My heart has long ago turned to stone, and now your harsh words simple hit the surface. The depths of my soul can no longer be tarnished by your small minded and stereoptyped views...
ME: CHEER UP EMO KID! :)

Someone who is white, middle class -in my experience you do not get black emos- and quite intellegent. they have either black or dyed black hair. they come in varying degrees of hardcoreness from area to area; in my area an emo is just someone who is not a chav and not a nerd.

Emos attitude towards chavs: as emos are cleverer than chavs, they tend to treat them as lesser lifeforms.

some Emos also attend the sort of partieis that are thouht to be dodgy.
emos are people who are white, middle class and quite intellegent.

People who try hard to look asian.
The boys:
Usually have the hairstyle of the anime character Uchiha Sasuke.They try to be thin just like the asians and wear thick eyeliners to make their eyes look like the almond-shaped eyes of asians.They also dye their hair black to have the jet black hair color of the asian people.
The girls:
Look as thin and small as possible to look asian and dye their hair black and follow the haircut of most asian people "bangs".Most asian people have side swept bangs some are different.Emos try to make cute faces in the camera and show their "fake asian eyes" filled with eyeliners.They also try hard to look innocent just like the asians but they look scary and deep inside they are sluts.They keep their heads down and act shy like the anime characters and asian chicks.They follow harajuku fashion just change the colors the some put ribbons on their hair to make them look cute like the asians.
All of them are anime-obsessed,loves Pokemon and other animes that were already seen in asian countries for like 10 years ago.Some even try to speak japanese.
Emo girl:Do you think im hot?
Asian:Dream on poser!
What i meant by "poser" is people trying to be asian.

People who are overly depressed over the littlest things. The ones who can't suck it up like the rest of us. Attention seekers.
"Upset leave me da fuck alone.. MISSING U HURTS ME SO MUCH.. Fuck everybody..Fuck da bronx!! So fucking upset and mad and alone.. My mandi got more brain and looks then anybody else.. Just please leave me alone.. I can't take it anymore.. Everybody leaving me behind.. I don't need to be here anymore.. There's no more room for me in this life time goodbye.."

It's a word that recently seems to have lost all meaning. It is not music. It is not a style of how people dress. It is not people who cut themselves. It is not a watered down style of goth. It is a almost meaningless word like nice. It is a word that was poked, prodded, overused and left to rot.
That pink and red striped shirt is sooo emo.
You're emo.
Emo music sucks.
