Being emo is about how you feel, the music you listen to, and the way you express ur feelings

If you feel emo, dress emo. You don't need to like the music. Expressing yourself through dress is an extension of how you feel. Of who you are. Its empowering. It'll help you explore who you are as will the people you mingle with. An important part of growing up.
So go along with it. Express yourself.
But if after, say a year, you STILL dance to Scottish Country Dance music while dressing emo, you will definitely look a bit of a ****. :-)

sweety you might be sean .emo is not about depreasing things it is music

So what's the thing with being emo? It's a stereotype, because originally it was just a music genre. I mean, what's the deal with cutting and crying your eyes out because your life is so miserable? Cutting just makes the pain worse, and crying....well it's fine every so often, but all the time? No thanks. My scar-less body is fine the way it is. <br />
<br />
I have a word of advise for you, take it if you want, or leave it here: <br />
<br />
BE YOURSELF, even if it means going through hardships with other people. You don't need a certain clique or group or whatever to feel happy, take it from someone who has already been there. <br />
If being emo is being yourself, then be emo; but if it's not then don't try to pretend to be something you're not, because there's nothing hidden between the skies and the Earth. <br />

Best of luck, ninja

Lyrics to Emo Kid :<br />
Dear Diary<br />
<br />
Mood: Apathetic<br />
<br />
My life is spiraling downward<br />
I couldn't get enough money to go to the Blood Red Romance and Suffocate Me Dry concert<br />
It sucks cause they play some of my favorite songs like "Stab my heart because I love you" and "Rip apart my soul" and of course "Stabby rip stab stab" And It doesn’t help that I couldn’t get my hair to do that flippy thing either… like that guy from that band can do… some days...<br />
<br />
I’m an emo kid, non-conforming as can be<br />
You’d be non-conforming too if you look just like me<br />
I have paint on my nails and makeup on my face<br />
I’m almost emo enough to start shaving my legs<br />
Cause I feel real deep when I'm dressing in drag<br />
I call it freedom of ex<x>pression, most just call me a ***<br />
'Cause our dudes look like chicks and chicks look like dykes<br />
Cause emo is one step below transvestite<br />
<br />
Stop my breathing and slit my throat<br />
I must be emo<br />
<br />
I don’t jump around when I go to shows<br />
I must be emo<br />
<br />
I’m dark and sensitive with low self esteem<br />
The way I dress makes everyday feel like Halloween<br />
I have no real problems but I like to make believe<br />
I stole my sister’s mascara now I’m grounded for a week<br />
Sulking and writing poetry are my hobbies<br />
I can’t get through a hawthorne heights album without sobbing<br />
Girls keep breaking up with me, it’s never any fun<br />
They say they already have a *****, they don’t need another one<br />
<br />
Stop my breathing and slit my throat<br />
I must be emo<br />
<br />
I don’t jump around when I go to shows<br />
I must be emo<br />
<br />
Dye in my hair and polish on my toes<br />
I must be emo<br />
<br />
I play guitar and write suicide notes<br />
I must be emo<br />
<br />
my life is just a black abyss... ya know..it’s so dark. And it’s suffocating me, grabbing a hold of me and tightening its grip, tighter than a pair of my little sisters jeans...which look great on me by the way.<br />
<br />
When I get depressed I cut my wrist in every direction<br />
Hearing songs about getting dumped gives me an erection<br />
I write in a live journal and wear thick rimmed glasses<br />
I tell my friends I bleed black and cry during classes<br />
I’m just a bad, cheap imitation of goth<br />
You can read me “Catcher in the Rye” and watch me jack off<br />
I wear skin tight clothes while hating my life<br />
If I said that I like girls I’d only be half right<br />
<br />
I look like I’m dead and dress like a homo<br />
I must be emo<br />
<br />
Screw xbox I play old school Nintendo<br />
I must be emo<br />
<br />
I like to whine and hate my parentals<br />
I must be emo<br />
<br />
Me and my friends all look like clones<br />
I must be emo<br />
<br />
My parents don’t get me ya know<br />
They think I’m gay just because they saw me kiss a guy… well, a couple guys …but still, I mean it’s the 2000’s, can’t two…or 4 dudes make out with each other without being gay<br />
I mean, chicks dig that kinda thing anyways<br />
I don’t know diary, sometimes I think you are the only one that gets me…you’re my best friend<br />
I feel like tacos<br />
<br />

That was beautiful.

Yep, love it. By Hollywood Undead. Got 'em on me Android. Even if they are taking the ****, its a natty wee track nonetheless.

Don't be a fake. Be yourself. Sure, dress like emos and do what ever you like, you dont need to listen to the music either! <br />
You can just dress emo and listen to the music you love. BUT don't call yourself emo XD

First of all,you can't just state that you're turning emo.True emos don't admit that you're emo if you ask them.Not all emos cut themselves.Music is a big thing if you're turning emo.You can't listen to Justin Timberlake or Soulja Boy, etc if you turn emo.You can't turn emo just because you feel like it.Emo is a lifestyle more than a dressing style.You can't just decide to be emo.

I agree with what blondie Twin Two says. I used to be emo. Trust me, you get sick of people asking you "do you cut?"

I just wanted to let you know that you certainly don't need a clique to be happy... especially if you dont like the main thing connected with being emo... THE MUSIC! Just remember you can make friends just being yourself... you should never change to please someone else.
