So you’ve decided you want to date other emos. You’ve tried dating other guys or girls and you’ve found they just don’t share the same interests as you. So how do you get an emo girlfriend or boyfriend?
Like getting any girlfriend or boyfriend its not easy but lets start with the basics. First of all you need to find someone who is emo or likes emos. You may meet someone who doesn’t look or dress emo but deep down they are emo inside, they just haven’t realised it yet. So don’t always go for the looks first. Find out where local emos hang out, it may be down the skate park, in Hot Topic or loads of other random places. A quick search on facebook for emo groups in your area is a great place to start to find out where other emos hang out.
Before meeting anyone though, especially online make sure you are going to make friends first. Friendship often leads to relationship and it lets you fit into new groups better. If you are meeting people online or going somewhere new make sure people know where you are going and do try to go with some friends. Find out where other emos hang out and go and join them. Don’t be shy and say hello. Ask people what bands they are into and try to make new friends. Seeing emo bands is a great place to find other emos, especially as you know they like the bands you do as well.
Once you’ve made new friends you’ll hopefully have met at least one person you like a lot. Try talking to them, see what things you have in common and hopefully you are off to a good start. If they like bands you hate or you feel they may not quite be right for you then thats okay, you’ve still made a good friend and got to know them.
Talk about bands you like, compliment them on their clothes or read them some of your poetry, hopefully you’ll find something in common with the stuff you share about yourself. Be yourself and have your own thoughts and opinions, people wont hate you for liking different bands or clothes. Just be yourself and be normal, you don’t want to scare them away.
If you are a guy looking for an emo girlfriend then playing the guitar or being in a band will help make you more interesting as not only can you talk about your guitar you may find emo girls also play guitar and would love to play with you sometime.
Don’t forget to flirt either, if you know each other and want to do something cute then be cute. Don’t be scary and just see how they react. Be random and fun, there is nothing better than someone who you can share a joke with or mess about with.
Dating is very tough but if you aim to make friends first then you’ll always have a group of friends to be with and who knows what that friendship may develop into.
