A guy, usually between the ages of 15-30, who listens to emo music and have many of the characteristics commonly affiliated with emo people. They usually have semi-long jet black hair that covers about 1/3 of their face (including one of their eyes), may or may not wear eyeliner, and wear rather tight clothing, including tight jeans and tight shirts/sweaters, usually band merchandise. Many also have studded belts, and tend to like Converse or Vans shoes.

Now, about their personality. They usually have a bit of a feminine personality, expressing feelings quite openly, and not really caring about how "tough" they are, as most average guys do. Many are artistically talented, and like to write poetry and songs, or even draw/paint. It is often stereotyped that emo boys cut themselves, but actually, most don't. Those that do, though, do NOT do it simply for attention. They do it because of actual emotional issues they're dealing with. Otherwise they're simply emo posers.

They more often that not are very nice and respectful towards other people. However, most likely they would not be respected by many guys since upon first glance they'll think they're gay. I see this as ignorance, as in fact, most emo boys are NOT gay. Sure, some might be, but more often than not, they're either bi or just straight. Emo boys get along very well with girls for this reason, as girls not only share many of their views, but are also undeniably attracted to them.

I myself share some of the characteristics associated with emo boys. I like emo music, have a slightly soft personality, and get along well with girls. But, unlike the bad stereotypes given to emo boys, I do not cut, nor am I gay or bi. I want people to understand that emos are not all about being depressed and hating themselves. It's just an aspect of your personality that is often anti-stereotypical to an average guy's behavior.
"That emo boy over there is talking to another girl again. They both seem happy, and I'm sure the girl likes him too. I can see why."

Boys (and girls) who, rather than finding their own individuality, choose to conform to particular patterns of dress, music and behaviour. Typical indicators: medium-long hair elaborately cut to fall over the face; tight, possibly torn jeans; and a vapid and self-involved personality that makes them insufferable to be around.
Person A: Hey, check out those emo boys!
Person B: Man they're cool. I read on Wikipedia that you can't have emotions unless you have EXACTLY that hair cut.
Person A: Word.

boys who arent afraid to break the sterio type about how a "man" is supposed to act and express emotion.
they tend to attract alot of girls(and guys too) because they are true to themselves, and thats sort of sexy i guess.
they have pretty hair that falls in front of there eyes and most of the time they cut themselves. they are typically skinny and just pretty in general.
ohhh! look at the pretty emo boy! with the pretty hair! **drools**

Really hot boys who act all sad and what not. They wear tight clothes that look hot on them. And I have no problem if they want to have sex with me when they're in need of emotional support!
OH MY GOD LOOK! That hot emo-boy is coming over here to have sex with me!

Most people believe that emos are gay, wrist cutting people who cry all the time. NOT TRUE! Emo guys are just guys that are in touch with their emotions. They are some of the sweetest, nicest guys out there, not to mention, some of the hottest guys, you could meet. They have relationships because they're in love, not because they want sex. They call you beautiful instead of hot. Ok, the eyeliner, black hair, piercings, skinny jeans and band shirts are different, but most people like uniquity. I know I do :)

I really don't understand people who hate emos...They are people too!
Caitlin: what kind of dude is that? Those are some tight jeans!

Elyssa: that is an emo guy, and that's hot.

Cairlin: huh, you're right. emo boys are hot!

Emo Boys....hmmm...theyre very deep and personal. They show emotion. Has hair that covers up face. Wear mostly KR3W pants with a tight black or band tee. VERY MUCH into music. But, have very intellegent conversations. Very sweet if you are nice to them. If they love you they will write you a poem or a song (and theyll tell you to your face). They are the best kind of guy you can get =).

...hard to find....great when found.
EMO BOY: I really like you and was wondering if you would be my girlfriend.

GIRL: Your really sweet. Of course I would!
