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.

A sweet boy, who lets his emotions go. Not always about break-ups.
Conor Oberst of Bright Eyes is a total emo boy.

a sensitive creature: highly emotional, and mildly introverted. typically, an emo boy has black hair, worn over his face, 'swooshed' to one side. the hair is worn short in back, but long in front, often covering one eye. wearing either plastic-framed glasses, or an abundance of eye-make-up is expected. tight pants and too small tee-shirts are expected, as well. vain, but self-depreciating, they spend endless time mirror-gazing, admiring themselves, whilst obsessing over minute flaws. skinny, always skinny. never can an emo boy exist, that is not skinny. emo boys are sometimes known to food-graze, eating bits and pieces throughout the day, instead of whole meals. the luckier ones, are known for binge-eating constantly, without gaining weight. after such binge-eating, they might complain of looking fat, knowing that they still look great, and certainly not fat. emo boys, can make great friends, but often get shunned for their stereo-typical whiney behaviour. in truth, an emo boy isn't likely to complain more than anybody else. they simply elaborate more. sulking, is typical, though they are too-often accused of sulking, when they are merely day-dreaming. despite a tendency to drink caffeine-loaded drinks, they might fall asleep, without warning. immersed in their own world, an emo boy will often have a despairing opinion on reality.

An emo boy is a boy of many emotions ussualy we can be hyper, happy, sad, or just none emotionaly, not all of us like to show off our emotions but at least we have them. some of us tend to wear girls pants, tight or fairly tight t-shirts either black or other random colours. We have ussualy black shaggy hair that covers our face or some of us have a fauxhawk that is swept to the side. some of us wear eyeliner and nail polish and some dont what ever floats ure boat, we tend to wear either chucks or vans shoes, some of us like to wear an asortment of braclets or wrist bands.
although some do most dont slit there wrists for no reason, some have a reason but w.e.

Emo boys are generally very pretty and very very sexy. Everyone wants an emo boy. Just because they have nice hair doesn't mean they are gay. I want an emo boy.
Me: "Look, doll, that emo boy is sexy!"
Doll: "Well duh, ALL emo boys are sexy!"
Me: "I knew that. Get out of my way, that emo is mine!"

Doll: "Wow, that emo boy sure can move fast."

emo boys are sensitive boys, many people think they are sad, and they often are, but theyre not whining about it. those who say: hey look at me am sad, please, look at me! im dressedup all emo today, are posers, emoboys are not whining about anything, and doesent care mostly for themselves, but for their friends, if they have friends though... the clothing style for emoboys can be different from person to person, but the most comon is they have long hair in the front that covers one of the eyes, and short and shaggy/spiky in the back, and they are wearing skintight dark coloured clothes, with a hoody jacket. and some use eyeliner.
many people think that emo is gay but thats not the case, but some emoboys who are single kiss with other friends of same genderemofile this is called emokiss.
boy1: look, that is a real depressed gay dude, kissing with another real depressed gay!
boy2: ohh you are such a dork, those arent gay, those are emofile emoboys, they kiss because they need to feel love from someone else.
boy1: wanna make out? i feel alone and have no one to love me...
boy2: im not a emoboy stupid!
