You probably heard the term, but can you clearly define it?

Is this homosexuality’s modern term?

Or is it homosexuality to start with?

Well, I am no gender expert to discuss this on full scale.

bromance in house
House has some bromance brewing with Dr. House – Wilson man love stint. Is this a clear definition for you yet?

simon cowell and ryan seacrest bromance
Ryan Seacrest has been tagged metro sexual and is regularly seen hanging out with Simon Cowell. Is this bromance or a traditional gay romance? (hey, don’t quote me on this =)

bromance movie
A movie was also drawn which tried to define bromance. Is it really hilarious and crazy? (Hmmmm, tempting thought. Ha Ha Ha)

bromance on gossip girl
And with a Gossip boy tone, these lead stars of Gossip girl have been “gossiped” to be a gay couple. They were quick to say that it’s just “bromance”.

To clearly define what BROMANCE means, The Menace flew to the west to get an interview with Dr. Phil and finally settle the underground dispute towards defining the term. The Menace also went straight to Oprah and Ellen to get their first hand thoughts on this “phenomenon”. To build a stone hard credibility, The Menace also went straight to Simon Cowell and get it out of the horse’s mouth and ask him, “are you bloody into Ryan or not?”

bromance at scrubs
Nah, I really didn’t go that far. I simply went to Wikipedia and grabbed their definition. Here yah go:

BROMANCE or "man-crush" is a close but non-sexual relationship between two men, a form of homosocial intimacy.[1] Coined in the 1990s, the term has historically referred to a relationship between heterosexuals, but the term has gained currency in describing such relationships when one of the men is gay.

And some more definitions and sample conversations from Urban Dictionary:

Bromance - A non-sexual relationship between two men that is unusually close.

1. The act of wooing a fellow male friend for the purpose of becoming closer.
2. Going to unusual lengths in an attempt to become closer with another male friend.


Steve: Ah, Dave!!! I can't believe you stole this first pressing of Aladdin Sane from your record store for me. We were just talking about this the other night.

Dave: No sweat, pal.

Steve: That is some full-on bromance. You're the man.

So, is Adam Lambert – Kris Allen friendship a BROMANCE?

Can someone help me on this? Cause I tried typing bromance, and it still marks red and WORD is asking me to look up in thesaurus. Im tired already.

This article does not aim to negatively play on the idea of third sex in any manner.

when there's smoke, there's definitely a fire..a thing more than friendship may sometimes not really a friendship anymore..
