    There is a new app coming out called Bromance. Its supposed to be a Grindr for straight guys looking for other straight guys for friendship. I don't think anyone but gay guys will be using this to find a DL hook up. I can't imagine a straight guy actually using this app to find other straight guys to hangout with. What do you guys think?

    Bromance is a geo-location app that inspires guys to get up, get out and be active.

    LMAO I think this is funny , look at the sample message (here it is)


    "Yo whatup I'm Colin and lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Sed lectus orci, sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Sed solicitudin a dolor"

    I wonder why they couldn't just come up with a fake message themselves instead of using that "lorem ipsum" placeholder text.

    You may specify that you would like your bro to arrive pants-less.

    Bromance sounds like a useful tool to isolate child molesters, self loathing gay closeted politicians, and creepy gym shower guys.

    Gawd the more I think about this the more troublesome I think it will turn out to be.

    Imagine how many "dudes" will be on there who want guys to look at them and then beat their face in for doing so.

    Me thinks not going to be a good thing.

    That isn't what bromance is anyway, as I understand it. A bromance happens organically between two guys who feel a strong but non-sexual bond. I don't think it's something you can set out to find, like dating... it happens because you discover a stronger connection with someone than a regular friendship. that I can't see straight guys trolling for that on the Internet. Activity pals maybe, but it's misnamed.

    Someone said "straight guys make friends easily" ... I think maybe they make ACQUAINTANCES easily but the straight guys I know seem much more reserved with their feelings, and -- when you do get to know them -- there is often a lot more going on beneath the surface than they let on. It seems like a very isolating world where you spend a lot of time behind a tough front.

    I don't believe that "straights" can use something called Bromance to search another male.

    Although it is true that they are very reserved with their feelings, I don't think they feel the need to make a deeper connection very often. Also they have a major advantage over Gay friendship, since their friends can not be sexually attracted to them. In Gay friendship many people are not clear about their feelings and confuse friendship with hoping to be with someone. For example once I had a boyfriend a lot o my friends wouldn't even respond to my text messages anymore.

    Totally agree. No straight guy is gonna be using this. This is gonna become the new hot gay app for closeted men.

    Oops. This is an old thread. Guess this app never took off 'cause I never heard of it.

    I think I would make a great "Bro". And, if and when my Bro has a couple of beers and his GF ain't putting out, I can surely lend a hand (or a mouth).
