I posed this question on twitter and facebook the other day "Can a gay man and a straight man have a bromance?" Now the majority of those who responded were "of course" it's just a platonic close friendship between two guys, it doesn't matter what their sexual orientation might be. But I did get some who said absolutely not, that a bromance refers to two "straight" men who are close friends. I even had one of my friends say it's not called a bromance but unrequited love (though I think he was joking) I have to ask those who don't think it's possible, do you think that all gay men want to have sex with all their straight male friends? If you do you're an idiot... I can appreciate how adorable and cute some of my male straight friends are (I do have many) but I know that they are straight. And no matter how much I would like them to be gay.. they are not.

I have formed some very close bonds with four straight friends of mine. I love each and everyone one of them. I think they are all extremely adorable and would be the luckiest guy in the world to have any of them as my partner.. but guess what they are straight. This doesn't keep me from telling them I love them, it doesn't keep me from having some of the best times of my life with them.

I don't understand why people equate love with sex. I love some of my close girl friends but I don't want to have sex with them. I love my close male friends and once again I don't want to have sex with them. And I know this will be a shocker but I love some of my close gay male friends.. and guess what.. I don't want to have sex with them either.

I feel like I'm getting off topic here.. but to me a Bromance is a deep connection between two males. They love each other, they love spending time with each other, they confide in each other, and just love being in ones company... that to me is a Bromance... and I'm so thankful for the ones I have.
