look up any word, like sex:
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."

despite what many people think, emo boys are not all wrist cutting fags. yes, some of us wear make up, and some of us are homosexual or bisexual. emo means emotional. an emo boy is one who doesn't mind a good cry every now and then. he listens to any music he wants and doesn't care what other people think. they are not sad all the time, they are not emo because of family matters, and they are not emo because "its whats cool." they are very nice, (or complete assholes, it depends on who they are inside. I'm not going to lie and say I'm the nicest person in the world,) and they try not to judge other people. the one thing that annoys an emo boy more than anything is the stereotypes that follows emos. the aforementioned "wrist cutting fags" its a major stereotype. in short, we are generally nice people who accept other nice people. not to mention emo boys are pretty cute ;)
jock: hey, are you a wrist cutting fag?
emo boy: no, I'm not. i am a boy who is in touch with his emotions. i wasn't pushed too hard by my father to live up to his own failed dreams of glory. my mother was not overbearing. i don't have friends who only pretend to like me because I'm apart of their clique as the typical homophobic football player who showers with other guys in the locker room.

jock: *looks down* .. shut up..

An emo boy cannot be grouped by any stereotype. The various people who go "hurr that emo slits his wrists and dresses like a girl hurr he's so pathetic hurr" clearly fear what they don't understand. Emo boys don't all wear makeup, and the vast majority don't slit their wrists. Similarly, not all emos listen to bands such as Fallout Boy and My Chemical Romance. They listen to what they want, when they want.

The only thing that actually defines an "emo" boy is how in touch with his emotions he is. They can be happy, sad, bored, whatever. They're just not afraid to show it.

Many people are emo, and even their closest friends don't know it.
*No proper example of an emo boy, Sorry*

a 'emo boy' is a boy/man of any age that hasnt been conned into thinking that the world is such a lovely place and he has realised that there is a darker side to life. he isnt afraid to keep away from the stereotypical image of as some people put it "real men". they can wear band tee's or just any kind of tight top. they wear tight black jeans with a studded belt. some of them also choose to wear a bandanna either in their back pocket of tied round their necks. they listen to emotional rock music suck as hawthorne heights, my chemical romance, the used etc. they can usually be found walking round in big groups in towns or shopping centres. they can have peircings such as lip, tongue, ears and noses.
they never have to worry about never getting a girlfriend as many girls find them irrisistable. they have usually dark hair that has been styled so it covers parts of their face and some of them of them wear eyeliner.
boy- did you see that boy that is wearing more make up than a girl???
girl- yeah...he's an emo boy...what a sexy beast
boy-oh my god... i dont believe you're into that kind of person
girl-anyone with a right mind would like such a beautiful human being
hot as FUCK
Damn.. those emo boys are fine....

A male usually aged 14-19 who is too weak and feels as if the world hates him so he cuts himself and listens to music that in later years blows his eardrums out and makes him deaf. Emo boys usually dress as if they don't care how they look but in reality they wake up 6 hours early in the morning to get ready for the day. Emo boys try to make themselves look as if they are the "perfect" boyfriends when in reality they trick females into dating them just to get into their pants.

Emo boys love the taste of blood and before they go to bed they usually cut themselves and cry in their pillows about how bad their life is when in reality they have it better than 70% of the United States population. Emo boys also never cut their hair and wear it to one side, they look like little kids whos balls haven't dropped.
Emo Boy: "I hate life, I hate myself, I hate my parents, I hate everything that moves."

Normal Guy: Shut the fuck up you queer.

Emo Boy: "Cries"

A boy who covers most of his face with his hair; 90% of the guys think that girls will think that they are beautiful (attention to girls, you cannot see their face, how is that "hott").

They think that "emo" girls can "save their hearts" and make their life worth living.

They hate when people who are not emo call them emo, even though when the boys are in 6th grade/middle school this went through their head. "OHHHHH, I like the way these people dress, maybe i'll be cooler as an emo. Ok, so i'll go home and die my hair, buy some BIGGG ristbands, and then i'll be emo. I'll be cool. I'll get SOOOOO much attention"

So yeah, emo's are lame. and yeah, they should totally get over themselves, their emorexic bodies, their style, and their Rock & Roll on estrogen music.

Im not saying that they are bad people, and that they are liars. I am just saying that I am right about them, and they just hate that about me.
"omg, im such an emo boy. but i'll get mad when everyone calls me emo, cuz im so SCENEEE!"
