This is a form of sympathy which can only be elicited from or received voluntarily from a bro. This sympathy, whether solicited or offered freely is always in connection with you or one of your bros being unwillingly dragged to some "chick event".
While unwillingly sitting in a Kenny G concert because your GF insisted she wanted to go, you text your bros for a little bromathy: "Dudes! I'm being held captive by my GF at a Kenny G Concert (or some random chick flick, or some romance novel signing event) and I think I'm gonna hurl ... I need a little bromathy."
