Among our revolutionizing lexicon and being the word glutton I am, my vocabulary is constantly changing and expanding. With phrases like "guyatus" (a hiatus from guys), "locationship" (a relationship based solely on proximity), and "lady business casual" (overdue for a wax)... (For more, buy this book...)
And as someone who is always abbreviating: GLG (Good Looking Guy OR Good Looking Group), DCT (Dream Come True), and THTH (Too Hot To Handle), just to name a few...
I think it's about time for a JGIWC glossary, don't you?
My current favorite? Bromance.
Urban Dictionary defines Bromance as the following:
Bromance: Noun. Describes the complicated love and affection shared by two straight males. A non-sexual relationship between two men that are unusually close.
It's no coincidence that Entourage is my favorite show and that I love spending time at bars like Dorrian's ("If the walls could talk, they'd probably slur their words...") where the Bromance is always in full swing. Bromance in action is far more fun then getting hit on by sleezeballs who don't know the value of a deep same-gender heterosexual relationship!
I can think of few things sexier than men who would choose dancing goofily with their pals over chatting up the local strumpets. I've done my research. I've hung around fools who spend their time with the same group of male friends and the Bromance was not flowing. Bromantics are easy to spot. They're often upper crust and very confident. They're comfortable enough to display public affection within these bonds.
If you're not on a guyatus, these are the only lads that are worth considering. Take it from someone who has spent her entire life hoping for a fairy tale. This might just be the next best thing. You may have to stick around longer because he'll likely be too busy with Heinekens and hugs to notice you at first, but it will be worth the wait. Bromance is the new romance. And if he's good at the former, chances are he'll drop the 'B' and get around to the latter.
