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."

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.

The latest attempt by an increasingly hostile world to annoy me into eating a bullet.
The emo boy has the kind of pathetic need for attention normally only found in goths, drag queens and politicians.
Much like those three groups, emo boys dress and act the way they do not to gain public approval or disapproval, but to get validation of an otherwise vapid, meaningless existence.
Most will grow out of it, thank Xenu, and the few who don't will descend to the level of sad self-caricature before, mercifully, taking their own lives using the most whiny, overly-dramatic means at their disposal. The suicide note will most likely be on the last page of his journal and will probably take the form of a poem that is, much like the rest of the book's contents, noticeably bad.
"Hey, there's an emo boy, want to beat him up?"
"What's the point? Nothing we can do to him will make his existence any more sad and pathetic than it already is."

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 boys (also known as scenes) are retarded, lying, annoying kids who look down on everyone, just because they think they are so cool. The most often place to find them is the internet, whereas they are obsessed with taking pictures of themselves while shirtless, even though they have the skinniest, whitest and most unattractive bodies, and talking about their (fake) problems, because they are oh so hot and cool. Their internet names are normally between the lines of XxemoboyxX1109, for the common emo, XxsinistercutsxX for the hardcore emo (pretensive and retarded nontheless, the only difference is that the vast majority claim to cut themselves, even if they don't, and if they do, its rare), and XxxlovefordinosxxX for the, er... more feminine type. The next most common place to spot the emo boys is at the shopping mall. You would know which kid is emo by their retarded clothing. They normally wear 'way too skinny' skinny jeans (the reason why most of the walk so weirdly), mainly black, and black band t-shirts. Their hair is always jet- black and extremely straight . Some of them sport blonde highlights and 'coon' tails, and all of them, I say ALL of them, wear Converse, and straighten their hair for hours every morning, right after putting on the eyeliner that they got their best girl friend to buy them (because being seen buying eyeliner is totally faggy, but wearing some isn't, of course).
(Damn. I even had to change boxes cuz my hatin' was so long) When it comes to defending their emo-ness, they always follow a pattern. First, they make up a fake story about how they've come to be emo, and how they have so many problems and like to cut themselves. Second, they defend their 'individuality', saying that it is a 'unique' way of expressing themselves (because there are NOT thousands of emo kids already that wear the exact same clothing they do, say the exact same things they do, and look the exact same way they do). They always say they can play the guitar, and, while most of them do have one, none of them can actually play one. They also claim that they write dark, sad songs and poetry. This isn't exactly a lie, because they do write songs, but they're so crappy and retarded they shouldn't really be called songs, and more like 'a vomit inducing mess of words bought only to the world to bring pain to the innocent'.

In conclusion, they suck, they should explode, and I will never stop hoping that the metalheads, hiphoppers, neutral people, pirates and ninjas (emos suck so much that even THEY joined forces) will go rouge on them and terminate them for good. (Hell, Ill even throw gangstas in there if it just stops the bitches already).

I have no doubt that emo boys will read this, hate me for writing it, click on the thumbs down button and continue writing their vomit inducing mess of words brought only to the world to bring pain to the innocent.
