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 friendship (typically between two guys) that is romance between bros. Nothing really gay about it. Not that there's anything wrong with being gay.
Chester: Bromance! Shouldn't be ashamed or hide it. I love you in the most heterosexual way!
Ryan: hold me...to a promise that I'll be the kind that friend that in the end will always keep you company.

the inseparable relationship between two or more heterosexual, often action-sports-participating, males. similar to the "hetero-life-mate", but based more on surf/skate/snow participation, party attendance and constant exchange of myspace comments and instant messages.

-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!"
