Okay, so there are two very different definitions for the label 'emo'.
First version (usually used by non-emos): Emos are attention seekers who live regular lives like every other teenager in Britain but cannot handle the strain as well as everyone else. They say that they are individuals, yet listen to ‘emo music’, hang out in ‘emo groups’ and buy ‘emo clothes’ with their pocket money. They hang out in dark rooms generally ignoring the happy things in life and talk about how depressed they are all the time. Most lie about cutting themselves in order for people to feel sorry for them without actually experiencing any pain at all. Others do it as an ‘initiation’ ceremony in order to become fully emo. ‘Cutting’ is a fad – what on earth does it help? You feel sad, so you cut yourself to make you feel… better? They don’t appreciate what they have, and do not realise how bad other peoples' lives are in comparison to their own. Emo is just an ever-increasingly popular ‘group’ which people want to be part of. It is a group for kids without an identity, looking for a bit of melodrama and ‘deeper levels of understanding’. To be honest, the kids who REALLY have a life not worth living aren’t even in the emo club – they just try to get through each day until it gets better.
Second version (usually used by TRUE emos – i.e. those who actually have a reason to be depressed): Kids who have had the misfortune to go through circumstances which are incredibly depressing. For example, parental divorce, death of a loved one, and loneliness. They listen to music which explains how they feel, enjoy hanging around with people who understand how they feel, and buy clothes that express to the world about how they feel. Only some kids cut themselves. Cutting can become addictive, and it distracts from the inner pain. It can be hard when youre labelled in the street because of what you wear, and can sometimes make depression worse. Being a ‘half-emo’ can also mean that you just like black and emo clothes and haircuts, and enjoy gigs and mosh pits. Some people that you like because theyre genuinely nice people, could be emo, and fun to hang around with.
Nearly every single teenager has wanted some form of attention or feeling of belonging at some time or other, and being emo could be the solution to some. Don’t hate people because of what they are labelled. Get to know them – they may be more like you than you think.
Person: 'Hey dude, look over there, some damn emos with their black hoodies and weird hair... jeez man theyre such attention seekers'
Friend: 'Err... you own a black hoodie, and all they've done is grown their hair long, man.'
Person:'Umm... oh be quiet, fool'
Cheerleader:'Oh my god, that girl is like, SOO weird - she is like, always DEPRESSED and shit!'
Friend:'Weren't you crying on the phone to me the other night because your boyfriend dumped you? You seemed pretty depressed then...'
the only kids you look at and just want to kick their ass but then you realize they already have enough problems as it is.

relax man they are already crying about it.
It's not people who cut themselves, or hate themselves and life. Not people who dress in skinny jeans with hair over their eye and band tee's. Emo came from emotive music and people began saying things like they cut themselves or all they do is cry, when that style became popular. Emo is really just a style of music that has meaning to it. Instead of things like 'Can't Be Tamed by Miley Cyrus' that has no depth, there is songs like 'Miserable At Best by Mayday Parade' that has depth. Basically, emo came about to label people who have a sensitive side.
Typical stereo type.
Person #1- That guy is wearing skinny jeans and isn't smiling, he must be emo.
Person #2- Yeah. He probably cuts himself every night.
*Person 1 and 2 start laughing*

People who try hard to look asian.
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.
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.
