-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!"

when two bicurious men are sexually and/or romantically attracted to each other but, since they're living in a biphobic society where experimenting is frowned at, they insist that what they're feeling is just brotherly love to avoid being labeled "gay". Instead, they're automatically labeled "straight" because touching and kissing other men makes them seem soooo "secure in their own sexuality".
"Some guy: Adam's my best friend, I just wanna touch him and kiss him and be near him all the time. I suppose we've got a bit of a bromance going on."

This is when two men engage in a heterosexual relationship in which they act as if they were a male and female relationship. When the man (Casey) and the female (Mike) argue, the female is never wrong and the man drives the female around everywhere. Fluids may or may not be exchanged.
Mike and Casey are in a bromance and mike is the bottom bitch.

The cover up term used by two males who are obviously gay, but are too afraid to admit it.
Single white male 5′10″ 185 seeks non-smoker male 18-45 for companionship, bromance, and all around good time! Must love gyms, cosmos, and barebacking on meth. Call 555-ANAL and ask for Brody.

When a guy thinks another guy is the ultimate in sports,acting, music etc...but not in a gay way-a fusion of bro and romance. Very similiar to a 'man crush'
Dude are you like in a bromance with Brett Favre or what?
