A term coined to discuss a close relationship between two guys that isn’t romantic or sexual in nature (but is it really not), but is usually rather intense, and seems to mirror the relationships that ‘girl friends’ have. Straight Males (which are different from straight males) are very sensitive about being labelled as ‘gay’ or deviating from normative Straight Person behaviour. Thus, the coining of the term ‘Bromance’ helps them avoid the whole situation, and allow them to be Straight Males.
