Men Get More Satisfaction From Bromances Than Romantic Relationships

By

There's nothing better than a good bromance, especially when it's between a President and his Vice President. But according to one study, bromances actually give men more satisfaction than their romantic relationships. The study, published in the journal Men and Masculinities, found that in recent years intimate male friendships have become more socially acceptable.

And as a result, bromances could be leading to weaker bonds among dating or married couples, or even reducing the likelihood of men and women pairing up at all. 

The study states that bromances aren't exactly anything new. George Washington wrote endearing letters to other men and  Abraham Lincoln shared a bed with a male friend for several years.
