Only men can understand the vitality of bromances
(http://www.mensxp.com/entertainment/gossip/9324-10-best-on-screenbromance-of-all-time.html) in our lives. Of course we love women. But when
it comes to friendships nobody can understand a man better than his guyfriends, which is why every guy out there needs to know the bro-code inside
out. The Bro-Code is the book of certain unsaid rules of a man’s friendship
with another one that we all must agree to abide by. Here are some of the
rules.
1. Have your bro’s back, no matter what. You’re no friend if you cannot watch
out for him.
2. If his girlfriend asks you about where he is, you know nothing – nothing at
all. Keep his whereabouts to yourself, hang up and warn him.
3. If your buddy assigns you as his wingman at a party, make him proud by
doing your job well. He hooking up with the girl he is eyeing is your
responsibility. Get on it right away.

4. You must do all you can to save your bro from dating an ugly girl. Chances
are that he is too drunk to even make out if that person is a girl or a guy. If
you’re sure he’s sober, then that means you can shrug off all responsibility
and try your own luck with hotter women around.
5. There are four things about your bro that you must respect in all
conditions – his house, his parents, his girlfriend and most important of all,
his car.
6. You just cannot get involved with your bro’s mother or sister. It is one of
the biggest violations of the bro code. A step mother whom he hates is still
okay.

7. If your bro asks you about your opinion of his new date, you are supposed
to give an honest answer. If you don’t like her, tell him. Just make sure you’re
not saying, “I want her in my bed right now!”
8. You must never leave your bro alone without any ride. No matter how
much you want to get laid, there is no way you are letting him walk more than
three blocks.
9. A bro shall never make a bro feel ashamed. Even if he just hooked up with
the most hideous girl ever, you’re supposed to make excuses on his behalf. Of
course it wasn’t him, it was the alcohol.

10. You will do whatever it takes to make your bro look like a superhero in
front of others. If he is bad at a certain sport you’re playing, you play weak
and save his image.
11. A wingman is never supposed to put his bro down in front of the girl. If
the wingman makes the man look bad in front of the target, other bros are
totally entitled to bash him up later.
12. The bro code permits the entry of a girl as the new bro only if she proves
to be worthy of the honour and by common concession, of course.

© Dharma Productions
13. Even if a girl manages to enter the bro gang, you shall never reveal the
bro code to her. You may treat her as one amongst you but never disclose
any rule until she wins your trust completely. She could be an undercover
agent for all you know.
14. A bro is never allowed to drive in a drunken state. An exception can be
made in the case of a bro who has acquired masters in the art of drunken
driving. If a sloshed bro needs to be sent back home, arrangements shall be
made for the same at any cost. Stealing others’ car keys is allowed if
necessary.
15. Anything a bro does in a drunken state is justified. Everything is forgiven
for him. You shall make excuses for him whenever required, for he shall do
the same when the time comes.

© Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer
16. A bro shall never allow another bro to text a girl when drunk. In case his
girlfriend calls when he is drunk, the phone shall be kept in the custody of
someone sober until the bro comes back to senses.
17. In the absence of your bro, you are his girlfriend’s protector. You shall ride
her to wherever she wants and keep her safe.
18. A bro shall never describe his sexual encounter in explicit detail to any of
his bros. This might lead to them imaging him naked which is forbidden by
the bro code.

19. A bro always advices his bro with the best tips to approach a girl
(http://www.mensxp.com/relationships/impress-a-girl/21172-6-mistakeswe-make-when-approaching-women.html). IT is a bro’s duty to encourage
his bro to become an Alpha-Bro.
20. Never sleep with a bro’s ex-girlfriend
(http://www.mensxp.com/dating/dating-tips/5937-can-i-date-my-friendsex-girlfriend.html). If you are attracted to your bro’s ex, you shall not make a
pass at her without taking his permission. If he wants you to stay away from
her, you shall abide by his request.
21. If you get involved with a bro’s ex, with his permission of course, you shall
never rub it in his face. Remember that it was the girl’s choice to date you and
it has nothing to do with you being a better charmer than your bro.

© BCCl
22. A bro always looks after another bro if he blacks out. He shall also tell
him all that happened last night, however much bad it may be. Bros trust
each other with their life, and it shall not be broken.
23. A bro shall never let another bro get his girlfriend’s name tattooed.
Enough said.
24. Celebrate your bromance. If anybody, especially a girl looks down upon it,
shoot her. They’re just jealous because they’ll never know what being a part
of a bro code means.

25. The fist bump is a form of appreciation. You shall use it to show
acceptance, appreciation or a go-for-it. Use this weapon often to have your
bros know that you’re on their side.
26. If your bro is broke, the bro code demands you to treat him. In no case
shall he be left hungry, or homeless.
27. A bro shall always be forgiven. Bros are for life, there is nothing a bro can
do to deserve hatred. Unless he gets involved with your girlfriend. In that
case, punch him in the face.

© ABC Studios
28. If a bro is unable to pitch in money for beer, other bros shall cover him. He
shall not be deprived of the holy potion.
29. Never hit a bro in the nuts, not even while goofing around. The bro code
condemns such acts.

This article is the most sexist piece of shit I've come across in my entire life. What's
with the point of preventing a buddy from dating an ugly girl? What if that girl has a
beautiful mind? That doesn't count, right? Oh, let me guess.. appreciating a woman
for anything but her looks is against the bro code too, or what? Everything..
everything teaches us to objectify women.. Since the day we are born we always
inhibit misogynist innuendos without even realizing it. Media teaches us that women
are trophies for men. Shitty movies teach us that if a girl is not hot she's useless. In
this juncture there is really no need to fuck up the minds more by creating this kind
of shit. Damn it, the world is already insensitive enough towards women. If you can't
do anything about it, at least don't fuck it up more.
