Provenance/Origin: "Bromance" is a portmanteau
of the two words "brother" and "romance". Originally coined by author/editor Dave Carnie in "Big Brother Magazine." Big Brother
was a sort of R rated skateboarding
/skate culture magazine that was eventually purchased by Larry Flynt
's Hustler conglomerate
and consequently taken out of circulation
due to unsatisfactory sales performance
. Carnie used the word on several occasions to describe relationships between skate-buddies
who spent a lot of time together and/or shared hotel rooms on every tour/skate road trip
-As a noun: "Dude, those two guys spend so much time together. They are having quite the bromance."
-As a verb: "Andy has been treating Victor
to every meal
and cover charge
for a month now. It's obvious that he is trying to bromance him."
