    And by bromance I mean a friendly relationship with another male (usually heterosexual) that has no physical satisfaction but can be emotionally (I guess) satisfying?

    Usually when you guys get drunk, grabbing happens, and so forth.

    Discuss tales of bromancing plz...

    In other words, you mean a normal non-sexual friendship with a person of the same gender.icon_wink.gif

    Its a little deeper than just a friendship, its usually very close and you may only have one or two bromances.

    I mean, its like a romance, with a bro.

    The kind of guy who you go to talk to when you are feeling down...

    Fair enough.
    I met him when I was 20. He was 22. I hit on him. No dice. 34 years later, still friends to this day, although he lives 800 miles away. Still call often, etc.
    He's the one person I would definitely call when I'm 'blue'.

    Closer to home: I have 2 straight guys that I do normal everyday things with, and there's no hint of sexual overtones. Undercurrent, maybe.
    We joke around, play "grabass" when we get a little buzz going maybe during a game of shirts-v-skins, etc...nothing ever goes further. Don't think I want it to, either.
    Sex can fuck up a friendship fast.

    I have a couple of long-term bromances. Nothing sexually overt or implicit, just straight guys with whom I have an emotional bond.

    I'm not certain if this counts.

    He is gold-card gay by self-identification. But he is VERY closeted at work, on facebook, and with his alumni group etc. The only places we typically meet are sports bars. He drinks a lot. Then we go back to my place where grabbing happens and so forth.

    We ran into two of my friends and he got very flustered when they asked how we knew each other icon_lol.gif I let him sweat.

    Well if the grabbing has some sort of sexual satisfaction to it, then no it doesnt count.

    Because a bromance isnt about sexuality, it is just about men being friends dude. Why would it matter, a bromance is not a sexual relationship?

    Yea I know but the gay guy will always get feelings, especially after some drunk spooning. No denying that. Its like a guy- girl friendship where more then likely someone develops feelings.

    If I were a straight guy I would be cautious

    woah woah woah back the fuck up dude.

    No bromance spoons. Its mostly my titties getting all grabbed and shit when drunk, and wanting to hang out, thats about it.

    What kind of sick and fucked up bromances do you have going on?

    Are you for real? Never went to party where guys passed out on couch together? Spooning happens before hands- happened to me once with a str8 guy. They always grab and fondle when drunk.

    I understand what you saying- makes sense in theory but very unrealistic, atleast from my experience.

    Yea all I am saying is I would never spoon with another guy unless we just had sex. For spooning, women will do just fine.

    There are many gay men who have successful bromances, and all my bromances know I am gay. We just enjoy each others company, that is all.

    With my ex-roommate Todd, my ex-bandmate Mikey, and my mate L-Boogie. None of whom are my best friends, and all of whom are straight. But our friendships are very bromantic; they're my emotional soul mates.

    There's no sexual energy or tension, but definitely some sort of weird bond beneath the surface. It's touchy-feely...without actual touching.

    I'm close friends with a lot of straight guys, some of whom are amazing men, some are the best looking men I've ever met in my life, and almost all of them I love like a brother.

    I don't really want to say I have a crush on a few of them (although that's probably the case), but I do wish I could find me a gay guy who was like these guys. They have set the bar high as far as the type of guy I'd like to be with, that's for sure.
