Although I'm not much for labels, I am one of the... darker girls. I wear mostly black, white and grey, and excessive amounts of eyeliner. and let's just say that my music matches my clothes. I'm actually a really happy person, I laugh constantly, and love to joke around and make new friends and stuff.
I was wondering what guys think about this style, too scary?

People who label themselves as emo/goth/scene are typically people I don't like. And I listen to heavy rock/metal music, don't follow trends, and wear quite a lot of black too! But to label yourself lumps you with a group of people trying to fit in and go with the crowd, and personally, I think it takes away from someone's personality significantly. I think you sound like a great girl, but that you are using labels/styles to try and define yourself. You don't need to--as metaldave20 said, you don't need to adopt a certain style of clothing/attitude just because of the music you listen to. If you are comfortable enough with yourself to the point where you can develop your own style without labeling yourself, then I don't think you would worry about if anyone found you "scary" or not.
Also, I find that people who call themselves "emo/scene" are almost always annoying teenagers that listen to whiny music and think shopping at Hot Topic makes them unique. I doubt that's the image you want to project.2
