A person who tries to fit in with the emo label just for attention or popularity (which doesn't make sense because emo people aren't supposed to be popular)

Anyway, here are some ways to spot an emo poser:

1. Act depressed 24/7, even when nothing is wrong in their lives
2. Cut themselves purposefully... and then show it to everyone
3. Must always adopt the complete emo look: dark dyed hair with sidebangs, very tight pants, an emo band t-shirt (like Hawthorne Heights) at least 3 items from Hot Topic, and of course, eyeliner
4. Has a rich family
5. Music lists ALWAYS include the following bands: My Chemical Romance, Hawthorne Heights, The Used, Simple Plan, Fall Out Boy, AFI, and more
6. Throws emo song lyrics around on their myspace/xanga/livejournal/etc., usually as their display name
7. On the above-mentioned sites, include pictures of themselves with the typical myspace angle (weird camera aim which barely allows for the viewer to see the person except for their hair, or at least one of their eyes)
8. Only talk to people who look just like themselves (and may get rejected if they see how much of a poser he/she is)
9. Are anorexic or have some other mental disorder, usually involving their self-image (because all emo posers think they're ugly)
10. Complain about their "hard lives" all the time

In short, emo posers are the reason that everyone hates emos. They're the ones who act like this, so people think that all emos do it too. In reality, true emo people act like themselves, and the only way that they are all alike is that they tend to have a primarily emotional personality. That's it. It has nothing to do with being depressed or mental disorders, or listening to all the same bands, unless you have a good reason for being depressed, did not force the mental disorder on yourself, or listen to the bands because you actually like them.

Though, in reality, I personally do not like most of the bands. They're not in my taste. I'm not gonna insult them though. Only the people who listen to them just because everyone else does, AKA the posers.
Emo poser: omg I'm SOOO depressed, becuz liek look at my ristz their soo bloody huh?!1

Emo: Yea. Hurry up. You need to bleed more. Or, how about you let ME do it for you?

Someone who claims to be emo. Dresses emo and tries to act emo. They tell everyone how sad they are all the time. And really their life is going perfectly fine. They cry constantly and claim to be depressed. Most of them cut and always show people. They go up to people and would be like "omg look what i did last night" then they would start crying and would want the other person to confide in them.
Emo Poser: Oh my god my life sucks. *cries and shows friend wrist* look what i did!
Emo: Why do you always show everyone?
Emo Poser: I do not!
Emo: Yea you do, you even showed people you hate.
Emo Poser: I thought you were my friend!
Emo: I'm not friends with posers!

A retarded fag who pretends they're emo, searches/googles for emo bands on the net and downloads their songs and study their lyrics like mad and tell other people that the lyrics somehow "relate" to them, made up stupid sad sappy stories about their so-called love life (which actually doesn't even exist as they've never even had a bf/gf), tends to over exaggerate their problems, cuts his/her wrist JUST CAUSE every other emo kid does that, tells everybody; "Oh my god, I think I'm emo, I hate my life, everyone sucks, life is so sad, love sucks! *cuts wrist*"
<Emo poser>: Dude, I think I'm emo. Look at what I did to my wrist. Uurgh, I don't even know why I did it, I hate myself, everybody hates me. *sobs*
