xxx Urm sweety, not trying to be like harsh or anything, but you are acting sort of poseur-ish, it’s what you want to be, and not what other people want you to be. Even if you don’t think you are a poseur, other people may think this from how you are acting. No-one is the same, ‘Emo’ does not mean that everybody has to fall EXACTLY into the stereotypical category. You may feel upset and emotional at times, but do you really want to cut yourself so others label you? And if you’re aren’t really depressed, why act it? Be original and try to stand out as an individual and this will help you acheive the look you want to have. ‘Emos’ are just people who are conveying their emotions through what they listen to, their creativity, what they wear, etcetera. So do that, and you can acheive the style of life you want to live. I have been named an emo before, but I do not believe in using stereotypes as everyone is different, and if we were all clones who looked, sounded, and acted all the same then what would the world be? So this was a longwinded answer, but hope it helps! xxx

Answer #11

Why in the hell would you WANT to act like that?

Get happy, start loving life, or take some depression pills if you think that this is suitible behavior you’re trying to ACHIEVE.

You’re just acting like a poser, don’t label yourself, everyone hates stereotypes.

Just be yourself, I know that sounds corny, but SERIOUSLY, come on. PLUS, emo is dead, it’s gone, the trend has passed, it’s not in it’s prime anymore, it’s just kinda blah now.

Answer #12

Your not emo - your a poser. There’s more to emo as a style than wearing black/clothes with chains and listening to certain kinds of music. As far as the depression goes, being emo has nothing to do with that. Depression is a serious medical condition and has nothing to do with ANY stereotype. Same goes for cutting/self harming - it has nothing to do with stereotypes. They’re serious problems that need taken care of ASAP. Having certain hair cuts won’t make you emo either. Hair has nothing to do with stereotypes. Stop posing and acting like something your not. Be YOURSELF and don’t worry about what others will think of you. If they can’t accept you as your true self, they’re not worth your time.

Answer #13

No emolovr101, you dress how you want to dress because that’s what you like. That doesn’t make you anything and don’t worry about what people say at that point. Do what makes YOU happy. If you like it, then you are not posing. Labeling yourself is what will make you considered to be a poser. If that’s what people want to call you, fine. If they don’t want to call you that, that’s fine as well. Caring about what everybody thinks is what is going to make you unhappy and a poser.

Also, you already seem like one from your online name. I’m not trying to be rude, but that sounds like you’re trying to be something you’re not as well. Just do what makes YOU happy. Not a label.

Answer #14

Well what you ARE called is a poser,which nobody not even me likes,you can’t call yourself emo,you LIVE it,calling yourself emo is basically labeling which NOBODY likes,you just live it. You can’t just be normal one day and be emo the next,doesn’t work that way.

I can’t tell you how to do it,you should know how to,just don’t call yourself emo because all your doing is being fake and a poser which won’t get you anywhere.

Answer #15

Everyone follows a trend at one time or another. Everyone gets clothing ideas from somewhere most times by seeing other people. So I guess everyone is a “poser” at some time or another. Just be happy with who you are. And like what you like. Label yourself or don’t. The only person who matters is yourself.

Answer #16

and you see the reson I what to be emo is becouse I love the way they dress an look and I know if I just dress that way then I will be a poser and I dont what to be! that is why I need to know what to do to be emo I am not trying to be a poser and if that is what I am then I am ahamed with my self! I hate possers!

Answer #17

Dont label your self

Or I’ll have to call Campbells and complain… jk

You dont want to act depressed

it hurts really!

Answer #18

your a poser, you dont label yourself, others label you, by labeling yourself youre just telling other people youre a poser

Answer #19

I was told emo people like purple, black, and green. goth is when you are in all black. I’m emo, for example.

Answer #20

Why do you feel you have to act depressed? If you really knew what depression was like, you wouldn’t want to act that way at all.

Why do you feel like you have to label yourself. Be who you are, not what you think will impress others.

Answer #21

Just live the lifestyle,you’ll slip into it.

Answer #22

well I’m not exactly emo.

Answer #23

You are NOT emo. You are a poser.
