Fun than romance
MODERN men can enjoy “bromances” more than romantic relationships with their girlfriends, according to a new psychological survey.
Many men told researchers they felt less judged and less likely to be nagged by close male friends than by their girlfriends. They also felt more able to express their emotions to another man.
Scientists highlighted the increasingly intimate nature of “bromances” like that of Chris Hughes and Kem Cetinay in TV’s Love Island.
Adam White, a researcher at Winchester University, said: “Our study showed that young men openly pronounce love for their bromances and engage in highly intimate behaviours, both emotionally and physically.”
