Are You Man Enough For Bromance?

What is Bromance?

Unlike MAN CRUSH which is a one-sided feeling one guy for another, BROMANCE is described as. . .

1) The intense love shared between heterosexual males.

2) A close relationship between two bros to such a point where they start to seem like a couple.

3) This bond is normally only shared between two males that have a deeper understanding of each other, in a way no woman could ever realize.

4) Guys in Bromance don’t have a problem saying “I love you” to each other because they know the words can be said in a totally non-sexual way.

5) Guys in Bromance don’t have a problem going on man dates.

What is Man date?

1) It is two guys meeting for the kind of outing a straight man might reasonably arrange with a woman.

2) Dining together across a table without the aid of a television is a man date

3) Taking a walk in the park together is a man date;

4) Attending an ordinary move (i.e nothing overtly manly or chick flick) is a man date.

What is NOT Man date

1) Eating at a bar is not man date

2) Going for a jog is not man date

3) Going to see your favorite team play is not man date.

Guys, are you man enough for BROMANCE?

Ladies how would you feel about a guy BROMANCE?

Again Bromantics are NOT GAY.

Phuck bromance (i.e the term). Not everything has to be given a term. Men have been buddies, pals etc over the years. Why bromance now? Another hollywood creation.

It doesn't say your sex next to your username. Your profile has a picture of a guy and a lady together, so I can't figure out which one is you. I think your tremendous fury at my acknowledging the truth stems from the unwillingness of anyone to provide any form of romance for the hermaphrodites. The ladies are already mushy, and they're appealing to the guys to get mushy, but no one's talking about the hermaphrodites. I'm so sorry, I hope you find solace and peace and love.

Now, I know that was silly, but I was just walking in your footsteps. My point - don't throw yourself into mudslinging so quickly. It doesn't speak very well of you.

Interesting thread. Spent the first half of today reading the entire thing because I didnt want to jump in without understanding what was being said.

I'm all for the guys loving and making the best out of their friendships with each other and in all but honestly, if I see my bloke telling his friend "I love you". . . . . . it WILL freak me out.

lmao,

Picture #1 - turned the switch off

Picture #2 - made the switch dissapear

Picture #3 - turned the switch off

Picture #4 - switch refused to stay in off position. The pitch angle is visually deceptive.

I dont know why guys are obsessed with flat yansh and flat breasted Halle Berry. I dont find her appealing, she is beautiful but she doesnt turn my switch on at all.

It seems to me that you've been contracted to promote Bromance. More powder to your face.

Nigerian men will be the last on earth to embrace bromance. I hope you don't take this the wrong way (I know you're intelligent enough not to), but I suggest you spend transfer the time you spend on this thread to the Literature board. You're really good there, you know!

Even people who are man enough won't give it a try.

1. I might become gay.

2. They'll think I'm gay. Maria bi Jesu.

NIGERIAN MEN, WE'RE A LOST CAUSE.

Oh my God! You make me wanna cry. . . seriously, that's the exact point of this whole thing. Once men learn how to treat each other right, the rest will come easy. What do women complain most about. . .

1) Their guy not respecting them enough

2) Being inconsiderate

3) Being taken for granted.

4) Emotionally closed of partners

5) Indifference

6) Physical abuse

When a guy treats his girl in a shabby manner. . .  majority of the time consciously or unconsciously he is doing it because he does not want to be seen as a wuss or an emotional softie by others, especially his fellow guys. Remember all the times you made fun of a friend calling him whipped because he dared to show his feelings for his girl? What do you think happens? He shuts off and tries to be as unwhipped as possible.

Now if you guys learn to be emotional softies with each other, the fear of being laughed at or mocked disappears and from there on everything will be on point.

It's simple.

I would have love your teaching to be the other way round(i.e., teaching men how to treat women)

Our naija men are scoring zero in world's chart on romance, just take a look of certain thread some create here.

Anyways Sisi,

If you are expecting any one of these boys children  pikins  men to agree with your idea. . . . you are kidding yourself.  You see people think women's self esteem is easy to down pour on but actually it is men. That is why they do things for "Street Cred" [/i]or what have. So from them except that they do have [i]"Emotions" is a hit and miss. They will put up a front of being hard and tough when they really aint.

So I understand this right, you are calling for a Hetro ban on everything that might be associated with gay lifestyle. Hmmm, yeah okay. . . good luck with that.

Again with this hand holding turning someone gay? Are you joking with this? Jeebus!!!

Yep! Bromance is the celebration of the little known fact that two heterosexual men, who are the bestest of best buds, can in fact experience 'Guy Love.'

You're coming across as being very sensitive on behalf of the gay cause. I don't know if its intentional or not.

ok, now just like it would not be considered abnormal in the west for a parent to warn their kids about talking to strangers, or avoiding unknown characters just to be on the safe side, why are people being attacked for showing caution regarding gay mannerisms? Two kids falling on top of each other, is no reason to panic, agreed (maybe). But there's no reason to criticize parents who are concerned about their children's exposure. You don't know what they've seen or heard.

The fact that handholding and the like, used to have no gay connotation, doesnt mean men have to jump up and start holding hands singing kumbaya or the YMCA song just to prove they're cool with it. If it didnt have a gay meaning back then, or in Nigeria, doesnt mean it can't have one today, or in the west.

Not every man feels the need to hold hands with other men.

Let me put it this way: more often than not in the west, its the openly gay people you see holding hands everywhere. This holding of hands is often accompanied by other gay stuff. How's that for imprint.

So if people see this, then why blame them for associating it with the gay lifestyle- its what the gays themselves use to express their affection for each other.

I broke out laughing when I saw this one.  No doubt I understand what you are saying and I am sure a lot of other men do too, but I am not sure you are going to get many truthful responses.  I said that because of the language.  In the way this is written, the language is leaning to the homosexual side, even by Nigerian standards.  

Moremi, I attended an all boys boarding school.  When we see the tendencies you just described, either on school grounds or out in town we dont hesitate to issue warning to the parties observed in those clumsy entwines. If they desist they are asking for trouble big time! This is nothing but homosexuality tendencies and they get beaten and harrassed out of the dormitories and the school. The few ones that went through this ended up transferring to another school.

Guys do fraternalize.  It is healthy for gender bonding but it is also a natural instinct in us that happens in stages. It cannot be equated with the manner in which females bond.  If a boy has homosexuality, it will become apparent in the teenage years in the way he expresses emotions and sexuality.  What you described here is homosexuality, not boys fraternity.  

Stage 1:

Boyhood playmate - It starts when the boys are observed hanging together rolling marbles on the pavement, playing ludo on the porch, kicking soccer balls up and down the street or racing against one another with their spoked wheels heading on an errand to the market or the store. When you see them together, one with a catapult hanging from his pocket and the other with pocket full of stones, you can bet pretty soon some animal is going to end up t'e'r'r"o'r.i-zed or dead.  They compete on who can hit target and get a kill. Leave them alone, they are practicing how to hunt and in few years they will need to apply that skill in some other aspect of social interaction.

Stage 2:

Teenage Company - Guy to guy share of interests and secrets. Plans on breaking laws and violating rules are strategized and executed together. Together they lay claim to a territorial boundary and in a designated area within their community, this is the bully zone and other teenagers and their brothers must bow down to authority when in this zone. Their refusal to acknowledge the seemingly political control will be interpreted as a challenge and will lead to a physical confrontation. This is show off time for the girls; a parade of aggression and manhood, power and control. They compete on who can get what girl and lay with her. They appear together at parties.  When they start dating, they pick girls in the neighborhood that are equally close and when you see the guys you see their girls also. This is a transforming stage.

Stage 3:

Manhood stage - More independent, college life and new interests has groomed him for a new outlook on life. Still in touch with friend/s but at a distance. New girlfriend and all into her, she is all that matters and he wants to please her but suspicious of her smothering affections and reluctant to completely bond with her but at the same time doesn't want to lose her, she is good, makes him feel whole and responsible. New interests, new friendships.  Circle of friendships have widened and interaction with them all demand time. New job, new assignments, new acquaintances, gradually loose friends and make new ones. This is the point where the man to man bonding gives way to man to woman bonding.  

Stage 4:

Family - Married and raising family.  Family, Job and community become primary concern. New acquaintances, family friends, lifelong bondings develop. Start to witness in his children the same cycle and stages in life that he has gone through and it becomes intolerable to accept.
