-noun
1. A non-sexual relationship between two men that are unusually close.

-verb -mans-ing
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.

also: "Bromancing the Stone"
1. The act of truly and thoroughly enjoying the process of getting and/or being high/stoned.

Provenance/Origin: "Bromance" is a portmanteau of the two words "brother" and "romance". Originally coined by author/editor Dave Carnie in "Big Brother Magazine." Big Brother was a sort of R rated skateboarding/skate culture magazine that was eventually purchased by Larry Flynt's Hustler conglomerate and consequently taken out of circulation due to unsatisfactory sales performance. Carnie used the word on several occasions to describe relationships between skate-buddies who spent a lot of time together and/or shared hotel rooms on every tour/skate road trip.
-As a noun: "Dude, those two guys spend so much time together. They are having quite the bromance."

-As a verb: "Andy has been treating Victor to every meal and cover charge for a month now. It's obvious that he is trying to bromance him."

-Bromancing the stone: "That Pete Doherty guy is definitely bromancing the stone!"

Love for a close male friend. Not in a homosexual way. May be viewed that way.
First use of bromance was Siouxsie & the Banshees - Kiss Them For Me back in 1991.

Just correcting.

A close friendship between two straight men who share similar interests and views, to the point where their relationship would be mis-interpreted as romantic from the outsider.
Andy and Vince are such good friends that they are having a Bro-mance.

When to males have a relationship that can even lead to sexual intercourse. When asked by peers if they are homosexual they are quick to deny and commonly respond w/ the words "no homo". Then continue on as if nothing happened.
1: Have you noticed brody is always hanging out with Frankie?
2: Yeah are they fags? Ive seen them kiss.
1: Let me ask..... Are u guys homosexual?
3&4: (interrupted tickling each other) No No! why would you think that. This is a bromance.
