A male person, typically between the ages of 20 to 35, whose lugubrial nature is firmly entrenched within a policy of excessively up-to-date fashions and self-apologetic philosophies. While it may seem that the emo boy is a sensitive and sincere archetype, most instances are typically narcissistically and oedipally motivated approval-seekers by nature who achieve catharsis with the perpetual maintenence and acknowledgement of a perfectly inoffensive facade as subconsciously and consciously constructed by the emo boy himself. The emo boy is a child of the women's rights movement through the mid-to-late twentieth century and the wrongfully antagonistic public perceptions associated with modern feminism; emo boys gather much of their inspiration from the more nihilistic aspects of 1980's rock/punk bands, typically due to it's prolifically morose tones and androgynous fashions. In other words, the emo boy is a xy chromosome-based apology for the sinful excesses of a patriarchal society, achieved chiefly through the adoption of more stereotypically feminine traits while outwardly denying identification with the more stereotypically bad male attributes and behaviours. Non-muscular, distant, quietly vain, sensitive, nice, cultured, apologetic, and intimately dark; the emo boy chooses to correlate as closely as possible to the label of 'deep' through careful censorship and grooming, rather than by way of erudition and direct illumination (which could be viewed as adversarial or condescending) even though the average emo boy displays a higher capacity for intellect than most other male fashion-identifiable cliques.
Too shy to speak to her directly, the emo boy watched the dancing object of his adoration from a darkened booth and reflected bitterly upon the futility of his love-life.

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.

Boys (and girls) who, rather than finding their own individuality, choose to conform to particular patterns of dress, music and behaviour. Typical indicators: medium-long hair elaborately cut to fall over the face; tight, possibly torn jeans; and a vapid and self-involved personality that makes them insufferable to be around.
Person A: Hey, check out those emo boys!
Person B: Man they're cool. I read on Wikipedia that you can't have emotions unless you have EXACTLY that hair cut.
Person A: Word.

emo boys are very hott! they listen to bands like my chemical romance, hawthorne heights, the used and so on. they wear tight girl pants and band tees. their hair is amazing, usually jet black with some dyed bits, usually red or blue, it covers most of their face in bangs and the back is short and spiky. they are boys in touch with their more feminine side and show their emotions unlike all the boys who think they are so macho. many say they cut and cry about their ex gfs, at least they can get girlfriends, and not all emos cut. they hang around in groups and are very friendly people, most of them very happy to be who they are. do not make the mistake of calling them goths, they wont like you for that. emo guys do make out with other emo guys but it doesnt mean theyre gay or bi. emo guys are not afraid to say they love you and show it.
person 1: hey did you see those emo boys making out!
person 2: yeah they are sooo gay!
person 3: no theyre not, that one has a girlfriend!
person 1: how does he get so many?
person 3: because he cares about them.

--Lets start with the head: Oh so pretty jet black beautiful hair thats long in the front and short and spikey in the back. Some wear eyeliner to enhance their already seXy eyes. Although some dont, they are still beautiful. They usually have their ear(s) pierced with occasional gages. Possible facial piercings as well. Such as eye brows, lips, tongues, noses... etc...

--They usually wear tight black or bright colored band shirts or shirts from goodwill.. They usually wear black hoodies sometimes with patches so they can stick their hands in the pockets and look cool and nonchalant.. oh and they keep them warm too. Often you will see them with blackly painted fingernails- no this isnt a sign of being gay. It shows emo-ness. Almost always you'll see them in tightass girl pants with studded belts, and seXy boXers showing. Bandannas often stick out of the butt pockets.. Band buttons are often present on the front pockets of the pants or on the hoodie. Pants are sometimes rolled up once at the bottom, and socks never show because they are tucked inside Chuck Taylors, or black skate shoes.

--They listen to a lot of bands that 'no one has heard of' and a lot of local bands that do a lot of screaming with emotional lyrics. Also they listen to mainstream emo, and screamo. Such as: The Used, From First to Last, Fall Out Boy, Silverstein, Hawthorne Heights etc..

--They arent afraid to show their emotions. They can cry, they can be eXtremely hyper, calm, and playful-(as in sometimes they hit on other guys such as their friends or band members but can still be completely straight.)


Get It? Got It? Grand.
(Misinformed)Person #1: Look theres 3 gay guys holding hands while walking down the street!

(Still Informed)Person #2: EXACTLY!

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: wanna make out? i feel alone and have no one to love me...
boy2: im not a emoboy stupid!
