I fake emotions to fit in too and in order to people see me as an average person. Actually, having a good relationship with everyone is necessary, even with those you don't like, they might help you in a future, so showing fake emotions helps you with this. However, I find it hard to fake sadness and empathy and similar emotions, I can cry but not because of sadness (and I barely cry at all anyway).

As I said before, there may be many reasons why you're suffering from this lack of emotions, usually that's because of a traumatic event, but there may be many other reasons. I'm not an expert in this, and even if I were, without knowing about you and your life I couldn't give you an accurate answer.
