Down the Highway: An Advice Column for Emos

Dear DtH:

emoMe and my girlfriend of two weeks have fallen apart. She’s seeing somebody else now. And I’m stuck here in my room, bawling my eyes out. Whatever shall I do?

– Lost Soul


Dear Lost Soul:

I suggest that you go back to your room and bawl some more. Then you can write poetry. Make sure that all your poems have the words "painful" , "sad", "lost", and other synonyms on them. Then you can form a band with your friends who are just as miserable as you. Make sure your guitarists know only three chords. You can get an awesome drummer, but you have to waste his talents by giving him songs with no variations at all. You guys can turn your poems into songs. Then you guys will become rich and famous, get drunk and stoned every night and all that stuff.

But you still don’t have a girlfriend. And you NEVER will.




Dear DtH:

Why is the world such a hard place? Why is the world making me suffer? Why is the world forcing me to wear black and listen to Emo Music? Whatever should I do?

– Self-Confessed Loser


Dear Self-Confessed Loser:

Three words: Down the Highway. Hope that’s clear enough.




emoDear DtH:

I was very suicidal and emo for the last three years. However, I got myself a boyfriend and for the last week I have been… happy. I don’t know what happened, but I’m actually glad that I’m alive and I want to live more. What’s wrong with me?

– Contented


 Dear Contented:

You are a poser.

 But don’t worry, within a month you and your boyfriend’s relationship will turn sour. If that doesn’t happen, do something stupid and he’ll leave you for good.

Then you can go emo again.

  6. Dear DtH,

    I have never been in a relationship ever. EVER! Is it because I wear more eyeliner than them girls or that I have this thick eyeglasses than magnifies my tears 1090968x as the usual?

    It hurts! The world is against me and I will cut myself tonight again but not too much so that I’ll live and people will know how sad my life is and will pity me.

    Aaagh… fuck romance! *slits wrists*


  7. Some people…they want to or accidentally let the WORLD know how actually emo they are. xD

  8. hahah. amf. loser. lufet.

    uhmm, ngaun lang ako napunta sa sayt mo wala akong alam sa DtH, kung totoo ba ‘yon o sarili mo lang outburst.

    nakakatakot naman mag-mail, para lang lalong ma-down. haha…

    naalala ko bigla ung magazine sa skul namen, may ganyang section dun. para sa mga problemado. klasmeyt ko ung editor, kawawa siya, hirap magpayo sa mga hopeless. nakakairita pa minsan magbasa, pero nde ‘to pumapalyang patawanin ako/kami.

    emo- nde ko nga lam ibig sabihin nito dati (jargon) aun nung nalaman ko… andami palang emo sa mundo ng blogging, isa ata ako dati. nakakaasar.

    tungkol po pala sa mysql ng orgfree – i-activate niyo lang po sa control panel ng account niyo, active kagad un at pwede na mag-connect!:)

  11. pag emo ba, OA? duh?

  12. I seem to have lost my emotions, can I just have somebody else’s?

  13. [Comment ID #550 Will Be Quoted Here]

    haha oo nga rob! wehehe…

  14. aby

    emotions are really hard to deal with, especially when you make it too difficult for yourself that you end up inducing self-pity.

    happy weekend ade!

  15. Burn the emos at the stake dammit! Hehehe… 🙂

  16. yen

  20. rob

    Gah! You make me want to delete my last post. I guess I should’ve written a letter to DtH instead. 😉

  21. Dear DtH,
    I didn’t think that I am “emo”… not until I read this post …….grabeh!!!! nababaliw ako ….. I just saw a Korean teledrama…. her mom died because of sleeping pills, and she herself has her own pills in her bag….. uhmmnnn I am just thinking why shouldn’t I have some for myself too? uhmmnn much better right? Instead of jumping on an 11th story condo? What ya think?

  22. Hahahaa.. Okay.. Might steer away..
    you sure gotta hate my “emo” moments.

    sorry.. but they come and go.
    can’t control it. wish. wish.

  23. DtH, about the emo-made poems/songs, should it also contain undecipherable lines such as:

    Take me as you are, push me off the road;

    To be is all I gotta be, and all that I see and need is time…

    to be considered as a genuine emo creation?

    Just planning to become a part-time emo someday.

  24. Daaaaaamn… you sure hate emos. 🙂 Hihihi.

  25. Toe

    Is “contented” a boy or a girl? 🙂

  26. bwahahaha!

    try this:

    i’m all out of love,
    i’m so lost without you…

    then you can start working on your emo. 😉
