Posted on Jul 8 2015 - 11:42am by PopESL

How do you describe the fun, close relationship between two guys who respect each other but don’t want to date each other?

We have the answer here:

Romance + Bro =  bromance. A close but nonsexual relationship between two men. The relationship between two straight guys.

Bromance is used as a noun. For example “I can’t believe how close they are. Their bromance is going strong.”

Some famous bromances in Hollywood include Ben Affleck and Mat Damon, George Clooney and Brad Pitt and Jay Z and Kanye.

English can be fun when it combines words to make a slang term. That’s exactly what happened with this term. Can you think of others?
