Teen male who enjoys colorful computer aesthetics from the early 00's ans proudly sips Arizona Iced Tea. Usually has a sharp sense of style, generally wearing black and white outfits with bucket hats. The sad boy, or commonly spelled sadboi, truly has a taste for alternative hip-hop music, like Tyler the Creator, Drake and Yung Lean. The sad boy culture glorifies negative emotions and depressed mental states.

Symbols: Sad face and japanese lettering
-Why are you wearing a hat indoors?

In short, they are gen z's version of the emos. Both are 15 to 20 year old depressed white kids, they both wear edgy looking clothes (though emo is more punk where as sad boy is more basket case), the main thing that separates a sad boy from an emo is their taste in music. Emos listen to edgy rock and screamo music, where as sad boys listen to experimental cloud rap and vaporwave.
There's a sad boy in my school who always sits alone at recess while looking at memes on his phone and listening to yung lean.

One who is often upset by things in the world. Often questions what life has for them and talks about things and why they are what they are. Talk alot and get in their feels for the most unexpected of situations. Little details can often make their day or break them. Most times aren't exactly happy with life, but not enough to kill themselves. Often confused with Depressed Bois because most of the time you see them upset and thinking. Though really its not hard to get them in a good mood and simply aren't depressed. Sometimes may make jokes of suicide but truly have no intent to do such things.
