When two dudes get close, it’s bromance — a relationship between two guys that has the appearance of a romantic entanglement.
Even to the casual observer, the attraction is obvious and they must be doing it. When two people become intertwined in each other’s life, assumptions are made no matter what your sexual orientation.
If the two parties are attracted to the same type; a hetero guy-girl or homo girl-girl/guy-guy, it’s immediate fuck-talk fodder. I mean, they must be doing it!
My BFF and I have been hanging tough since the late ’90s. We’ve never done it, even though we’re both gay guys. Everybody naturally assumes we’re together. It can be such a cock block sometimes.
In my life, friendships have been far more enduring than any boyfriend situation. While I have a small glimmer of hope that one day I will fall in love and partner up, is that really necessary? Must that be the ultimate goal of a relationship? One thing I know for sure: You can’t turn a friendship into romance. Tried it, multiple times, and it doesn’t work. There’s a dynamic in place for a reason; it is what it is.
A marriage, or best friend you have sex with, seems attainable for others, so finding a husband may even be possible in my lifetime. Until then, I’m totally satisfied with good friends and a side piece. Not everything fits into one container!
