    Emo (from emotional) is a slang expression used to describe a range of fashion styles and attitudes somewhat affiliated with emo music and its related scenes. The word "emo" may be used as a noun to identify a member of the emo scene, as an adjective to describe a certain style of fashion or music, or even to describe a state of experiencing unhappiness, loneliness, depression or melancholy (to feel "emo").

    "Emo" comes from the word emotional.

    Those who are considered emo are those who are usually emotional destressed by others.. They show hatred for the world and others not like them. They tend to wear black and look depressed and like goths.

    In my opinion , i think they just need a friend to talk to.. despite how different they may be.. i mean some people like to act black

    is there a difference to being nice to someone full of grief?
