A recent study has found that men are happier with their 'bromances' than they are with their romantic relationships.
The results showed that men feel much more comfortable with male mates as they feel less judged and able to better communicate their feelings.
"Tim knows I love listening to Taylor Swift and Beyonce, but I keep that quiet [around my girlfriend] because she would judge me. I feel like I have to be more manly around her." said one of the participants.
The researchers said the key to a romantic relationship was sexual attraction, emotional connection, and personality. The key to a bromance was the last two.
The researchers said “there was a conclusive determination from the men we interviewed. On balance, they argued that bromantic relationships were more satisfying in their emotional intimacy, compared to their heterosexual romances.”
So it looks like the idea of 'bromance' is still alive and kicking... Hopefully it doesn't damage the real romance though!
