Men more satisfied with 'bromances' than romances

'Bromances' can threaten heterosexual relationships, research shows

How bromances are threatening heterosexual relationships

Researchers at the University of Winchester in the United Kingdom interviewed 30 straight undergraduate men, who said they felt less judged by their bros, and that it was easier to open up and resolve conflicts with their male friends than with their girlfriends.

One man, "Harvey", said he didn't even feel comfortable divulging that he loves listening to Beyonce and Taylor Swift - for fear that his girlfriend would judge him.

The Paradise Ridge Winery in Sonoma County posted that it was "heartbroken" to announce that the facility had burned. Most of the remaining fruit, he said, are thicker-skinned cabernet sauvignon grapes that won't be affected by smoke.

"With a romance", the men griped, "one was constantly posturing and self-monitoring", acting, "the part of the adoring boyfriend", in order to sleep with their girlfriends, researchers found. Participants stated that the lack of boundaries and judgement in a bromance is expressed as emotionally rivalling the benefits of a heterosexual romance.

They frame the tensions of the bromance vs romance dynamic against a backdrop of declining homophobia, sexual liberalism, and inclusive masculinity.
