I think most emo girls would probably go for emo guys. But if you would like one try getting to know some as people as take it from there.

Isn't the term "emo girl" redundant? Aren't most girls "emo" (tional) by default?

lol wow, a lot of seemingly close-minded people, because clearly, only girls who have the emo style can possibly get depression....

Anyways, I think the style is very attractive and i've dated a couple of 'emo girls' before, they are usually quite fun and crazy if anything. I'm not a particularly a fan of the music myself but I won't judge anyone else's tastes.

Emo girls for the most part no more depressed than punk girls actually care about any kind of anarchy. It's a style, a genre. A way to wear their hair, make-up and clothes and if you find it attractive, go for it.

You'd be better off saying you like scene girls. Which is even worse. But thats my opinion. Scene should only be a fashion style like bohemian, goth, or glam. To each their own.

'EMO' is a short hand term for 'emotive hardcore' which - ACTUALLY - was a musical movement pioneered by bands such as The Cure, Depeche Mode, The Smiths, Joy Division, etc., which I'm sure most of you who 'don't know what emo is' have heard of. Unfortunately, it garnered a pretty nasty public image but the movement was never about self-mutilation or depression to start.

Of course, thirteen and fourteen year old kids can't appreciate the subtle nuances and tender melancholy of the greats so they turned to 'screamo' which was essentially the same thing, but harder, louder and faster. I venture to say that most teenagers feel alienated and alone at some point during their adolescence - but with the rise of the internet, social networking, etc., these kids were able to come together and commiserate across state lines, countries, etc. and it eventually became a popular, albeit convoluted trend.

Some kids abused the new emo movement to justify self-harm, but not all of them; in fact, the 'emo' trend shone a lot of light on the pros of being 'straight edge', as in, abstaining from drugs, alcohol, smoking, etc. so it would be wrong to claim it it was all awful. I obviously can't speak for everyone, but I got caught up in the emo trend as a youngster and I'm one of the most well balanced individuals I know at present (without meaning to sound conceited, of course). MOSTLY, though, it was about the music. There were always people who simply liked the style of dress - but 'EMO' is rooted in music, often with vaguely depressing themes.

ANYWAY, that's my two cents for anyone who's got no idea what it is.

And responding to OP's post, that's a huge over generalization. Just because a girl typically adheres to a specific style of dress doesn't mean that she's the model personality for every girl who dresses that way. That would be like me asking; "I'd like to date a voice actor, has anyone ever dated a voice acter and can you tell me what they're like?"

I'm sure voice actors come in all shapes, sizes and personalities...

Emo (from Latin: "to buy, purchase", pronounced eeee-moe) is a type of subculture (rather distinctly from the 21st Century) loosely rooted around punk rock with its own distinct style of music, fashion, argot and other trappings in a desperate, though ultimately hopeless attempt to pronounce their uniqueness. As a rule of thumb, a person described as "emo" (falling under certain behavior mannerisms and attire correlating with the subculture) will often be from a comfortable, middle-class background with understanding, pleasant parents. All of this is irrelevant to an emo who will consider themselves misunderstood and repressed regardless of reality. Any urologist would say that these very emotional people need to be encouraged by the rest of society to help them jump off a bridge and stop taking up our public benches.
They all suffer from severe narcissism, leading them to believe that they alone know what pain is, and that no one understands them, when in fact they are simply experiencing puberty; just like everyone else is. They all believe that their personal affliction could not be worse, that their life in their quiet suburban house with their own television and computer in their room is not just the worst life they could have, but the worst life anyone has had, ever. On the plus side, emos have made great strides in the fields of photography. Many surrealist photographers study the ridiculous and almost impossible-to-duplicate camera angles emos use to post pictures on their MySpace.
The origin of emoism is much debated, but it is thought, like many terrible things, to have first manifested in the modern form during the 1990s. Another theory is that emos are suffering from a defect in the center of endorphins. It goes so much happiness hormone lost that from puberty simply not sufficient to a normal life to lead.

this whole thread is completely ridiculous, in all honesty. I was pretty sure the word "emo" dropped out of most people's vernacular 4-5 years ago but I guess not. It was never a style, it was a subgenre of music. And while the "oldies" on this post might not understand it, I'm sure they all had their stereotypes they despised and idolised at younger ages as well, so whats the big deal?

Wear what you want, listen to what you like, say whats on your mind and be yourself. That will get you respect more so than any "look" would.

Emo is what people are until life really gives them something to cry about. I remember how into Sartre and existentialism I was in high school-I thought it was sooo deep. Until I grew up and realized how meaningless life truly is.
I'm pretty sure all us "oldies" have been there and done that as had those before us or those before them and so on and we understand it. And when you reach our ripe old age there'll be some other dumbass thing for your generation to have no patience with.

emo females huh. Take em outside to the beach, strip the pale make up off them and tell em take a dip in the water and be peachy. Emo gals want love sure they can have it anyone can feel love but don't love being depressed.

My thoughts is that its such a broad spectrum of lifestyles and styles.

There's not one bin where you can categorize something like Emo. They'd like to, but doesn't work like that!

Example, I could shoot you 5 negative stereotypes about any fashion class.

Fashion classes is just stigmatization. Learn from each individuals and their strengths and weakness.

Maybe I've simply gotten old and can no longer keep up with the kid lingo, but can someone tell me what the heck is EMO?

Is that the new Goth/Punk?


Emo(tional) started as a subculture to the genre of music known as emo.

Today's 'scene' kids are to emo as today's 'vampires' are to 'goths'.

Really cool look though. They have rad hair.

I've had meets with variations of emo. The one meet had a face that resembled an emu. No wonder her pictures were always from a distance. The other one was an emoo. She must have weighed 250-300 pounds. No wonder she only had head shots-from the third chin up-on her profile.

I think the question is a silly one since most "EMO" girls that I have met are just that...GIRLS...My suggestion, start looking for women as girls haven't the maturity and are most likely jail bait

I don't get the emo thing. But I like emo teen porn girls...the style is really cute.

I would say, though, that if you want to date one, you should have some affinity for that particular subculture. The music especially--I don't think it would work well if you don't like that sort of music (unless she's also into the sort of music you are).

Well all I can say is im 26 and still fairly 'emo/scene' in how i dress. I like the music (and actually most music), i like tight black jeans, studded belts and colourful t-shirts. I also used to dye a stripe of my hair different colours.... the look i feel is cute. AND guess what... Ive never cut myself, am pretty confident and in a great job. My friends are all different and like different things so please, please, please dont be judgemental.

i dated an emo/suicide girl once. all sounds bad, but, its not, just a name. anyways, she was my polar opposite. fun to be with, fun to go out with, she taught me a few things, but in the end, i was not ready for a serious relationship, so it went south very quick and ended horribly. so, would i do it again? absolutely. she was very much hot stuff.

I date a 22 year old emo girl. It is mostly about the music, which is also music I like. I dress preppy (ralph lauren / columbia / etc) and look like any other American designer.

If you like the music, go to the concert. If you see a cute emo girl you like at the concert, then show your interest and spend some time with her and you will have the best gf of your life.

Not all emos cut themselves. That's just a sterotype but they do talk about how life sucks and Nobody understands them. I as a goth personally can not stand an emo lol.
