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."

A boy who is pathetic in mostly every way possible.

not hot like the others say.

listens to emo music which is all about how horrible the world is and heartache blah blah blah. depression, sucidide.

And there is no such thing as a "true" emo. because they are all fakes, who think there jet black hair swooshed in their eyes,music "you have never heard of", studded belts, and etc are soo cooool man.

emo boy: "boo hoo. my life is so horrrible. no one takes me seriously and all my friends are back stabbing, throat slipping, knife stabbing losers. i wish i could just kill myself and get it over this horrible life." *takes a sip of his latte*

regular boy:"then do it"

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!"

Listen people!
Emo boys are not all that great.
I read all of your defitions and I'm quite confused.
Emo boys are usually 16 year old acne ridden white upper middle class boys who whine and complain about being grounded for stealing their little sisters jeans.
You say that the reason their hot is because their emotional and sensitive.
Ladies,their are tons of sensitive guys out there who are actually compassionate to ACTUAL HUMAN SUFFERING AND PAIN(e.i. recent bombing in Pakistan) so as not to spend a whole saturday afternoon listening to Finch and blogging at LiveJournal about how the Homeroom class oztracises him so much.
And you talk about how creative and intelligent their conversation is.
3/4ths of the emo boy population doesn't even know who Allan Ginsberg is.
But I dare you to ask the school papers lit. editor and he'll tell you his favorite is Oscar Wilde.
I'm not saying their bad people, I'm just saying that their not as mature as the rest of the male populace.
And for the record...I'm a chick,so I should know.
Emo boys,play some White Stripes for god's sakes!

An emo boy is a male who has bought into the MTV fad of over sensitivity. Usually, the male is of college age and is going through "the motions". Hopefully, in time, the emo boy with grow out of his confusion and become a regular man.

It's a popular misconception that emo boys are more in touch with their emotions than non-emo males. It's generally a drama paradox, showing more emotion that one has.

An emo boy is usually seen wearing: Jet black hair, black clothing, thrift store clothing with misc. logos, Chuck Tailors (or similar), black army style caps, studded belt, tight pants

The emo male is usually well groomed and metrosexual.
Now I could make fun here but, we're all guilty of buying into things. Everyone is capable of following a fad. So, cheer up emo kid, it's only a growing stage of your life.
