What a chick calls you when she's not interested in you. Usually this happens when you're just about to ask her out.
Boy: hey there I wanted to tell you that...
Girl: tell me what bro?
Boy: nevermind it's cool

Bros are a type of white male between the ages of 16-24. They originated in Southern California during the early 2000s, but are now prevalent in most major cities throughout the US and Canada. They are characterized mainly by their frequent use of the word "bro" to describe other males who are actually unrelated to them, but can be noted by many other distinguishing features such as:

1. A brightly colored Abercrombie and Fitch polo (often pink) worn with the collar popped
2. A Livestrong bracelet
3. A trucker hat, worn either backwards or tilted to the side
4. A pair of gino sunglasses, most likely purchased from Armani Exchange for $39.99, and often worn indoors / in non-sunny weather
5. Being overly tanned, to the point at which it is apparent they spend several days a week at the tanning salon
6. Hair with too much gel in it
7. Working out all the time and wearing overly tight shirts to make it look like they are more jacked than they actually are
8. Frequent use of the words "chill" and "sweet"
9. Liking Family Guy better than the Simpsons
10. Listening to a combination of soft rock (Jack Johnson, John Mayer, Dave Matthews), the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and some rap.
11. Ripped jeans for formal attire and track pants for informal attire
12. The excessive use of cologne and axe body spray

There are several "bro repellants" available to the common North American young man:

1. Listening to thrash metal, grunge metal, or classic rock
2. Using words longer than six letters
3. Staying away from Laguna Beach, Malibu, or any other towns with names that are printed on Hollister shirts

18-25 year old white upper middle class males who attend universities, and are usually members of fraternities. During free time they enjoy playing sports such as ultimate frisbee, lacross, flag football, fishing, and beach volleyball. They are knowledgeable about most spectator sports and attend sporting events regularly. Bros are often actively envolved in fantasy football, and will form leagues with other bros. They enjoy attending suburban house parties and frat parties, and are skilled at most drinking games. They also have a fairly refined taste for good beer, and can afford to drink it more often than others their age, but still must resort to cheap beer at times. Bros enjoy the presence of attractive women, but are also content with simply "broing out". Favorite clothing brands include polo, vinyard vines, jcrew, and lacoste. Shorts include brightly colored, madras, crittered, seer-suckers and the classic khakis. Footwear comprises mostly of sperry topsiders, flip flops, and asics runners. Hats with pre-frayed brims are popular, as are Costa Del Mar sunglasses with crokies. Bro bands include Dave Matthews, OAR, Incubus, Jack Johnson, Dispatch, and Sister Hazel. Bros drive SUVs and trucks, and contrary to popular belief, do not always lift them, and when they do, the lift rarely exceeds 4 inches. Upper-end colleges in the South contain the most bros. These schools include Vanderbilt, University of Virginia, Southern Methodist University, and Duke. Most SEC schools are bro, and the University of Texas and Notre Dame are also excessively bro. Bros are conservative in their political affiliation, and have a fairly strong value system, although they are often immature in their actions. Many people would consider bros racist, but they can actually tolerate well spoken or respectable blacks that attempt to assimilate into mainstream society. Certain names are more bro than others. Last names that are usually first names, such as Ryan, and last names that are verbs, such as Rush, are bro.

Common Misconceptions:
-bros do not necessarily drive lifted trucks

-bros are not rednecks or white trash, and they actually seek higher education, if for no other reason than that their parents can afford it.

-FAMOUS SHIRTS ARE NOT BRO

-Bros are not gym rats; they enjoy working out, but are not excessively big

-Bros do not act gangster by any means, other than to mock black culture. They can, however, enjoy rap music on occasion

Yeh, that guy at the Beta house was a bro for sure.

A person who would give you the shirt off his back if he doesn't want to wear it anymore. A Bro is a person who will bend over backwards to help you bend someone over backwards. In short, a Bro is a lifelong companion you can always trust to be there for you, unless he's got something else going on.
You really helped me out of a tight spot man. You are my Bro for the rest of time.
