Bromance is the love that unites two, or sometimes more, straight men. It is said that this expression was coined in the 1990s by Dave Carnie, editor of the Skateboarding magazine Big Brother. It described the intimate friendship that sometimes linked two skaters who spent a lot of time together. This term, composed of the words brother and romance, began to enjoy popularity around 2005 with its emergence in cinema and television, making visible the changes occurring in Western masculinity, immersed in the metrosexual phenomenon. In this kind of relationship admiration, trust, and loyalty are absolute, and there are also hugs and loving expressions, but no theoretical attraction or sexual activity by definition, because at that time the g0y man also emerged, who starts his relationship with a bromance.
