History:
Emo was originally used to describe "emotional hardcore" music that was somewhat similar to rock and often had confessional lyrics.
The term "emo" was an abbreviation for "emotional hardcore"before being used to describe those who listened to that type of music.

Meaning:
Emo boys are skinny guys who usually wear dark colors and skinny jeans. Their hair usually covers at least one of their eyes, and some wear eyeliner. They are usually introverted, creative, sensitive to people's feelings and mysterious. Some are just ass-fags. Not all emo boys are "fags" who cry all the time and cut their wrists. Some are bisexual because they're open-minded, but don't flatter yourself and think all LGBTs are just out there to rape you.
They're just people, so of course, every one of them has their own variations and shit.
Emo skaters are the hottest though.
Friend: I will mentally have sex with all the emo boys I see on the street today.

Me: Amen, brotha.

A boy who generally has long hair covering one or both of his eyes, which will usually be outlined in thick black eyeliner and/or eyeshadow and tight pants, usually girl's skinny jeans, wearing Chuck Taylor's or other skinny, flimsy footwear. Though often referred to as being cutters, many "emos" are not actual cutters. In fact, the term emo is simply a shortened form of the word "emotional," though most emo boys dress after favourite bands. The deepest desires of a large percentage of the female population, emo boys are not always gay, though some are.
I want an emo boy.

a boy who listens to such bands as Dashboard confessional and other acoustic bands. We rock and we are not girly men, we just care.
*no example at present time*

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."

Someone who expresses their interest and EMOtions in an obvious or outward way such as dress. They have great respect for music and art. They typically don't follow the mainstream Unless that's what they like. They be who they want to be and if others don't approve of who they are, that's their problem. They typically wear tight skinny jeans, a slim fit tee that sports one of their favorite bands and accessories such as studded Metal belts, hoodies, bracelets, and various piercings. Most also have dyed black and straightened hair and like to wear eyeliner. Some even wear black nail polish
