The BroShip Rule

Since the beginning of time, there has always been dispute over the dos and don't s when talking about the friendship between bros. Most of the disagreements that arise between bros usually revolve around dating and relationships issues with the other gender.Temporary rules and restrictions had been set in the hope of resolving these conflicts once and for all. However these rules -being temporary - lose their values in the long run. As a result , wars have been fought over this issue ( as evident by the Trojan War) and men of honour have died serving their better halves. So philosophers and humanitarians decided it was necessary to lay down a general guide for the bro system that would be fair to all bros and get generally accepted by all.

10. A Bro must have his fellow bro as a wing man for nothing less than 5 months

Yeah that might sound so...well...difficult but the fact is that using the same wing man for that period of time is actually the right way to go. Ok true he might seem to be inefficient at first but the truth is that if you guys are really close, he would really get to know you better over time and this would in turn make him feel more comfortable introducing you to girls that fall under your criteria. Also the idea is to initiate your wing man/bro into a complete bro so as to enable him stand by your side through thick and thin. Having a wing man is the best way for shy guys to gradually break away from their web of reservation and fear, and learn to absolve the occasional rejections by girls . One other thing is that you must always be patient with your wing man . Guys tend to get wing men with the hope of getting immediate result, but this is not always the case. Patience is always the key and that is something you must learn to exercise.

9. NEVER DATE A BRO'S EX

Ok seriously more than 38 percent of the world's population is made up of women so...yeah. It doesn't matter how catchy this ex is; she is simply a no go. Bros tend to find this quite difficult though seeing as it is easier for them to go about dating the ex. But the truth is that such a move can give your bro the impression that the girl was never really into him in the first place. So do me a favor and spare your bro this totally wrong impression . Ok well there is an exception to this rule though.If you are sure you can get through it without getting caught, go ahead( do yourself a favor though and don't let your bro know this piece of advice). But lets be frank here : he is your bro, so seriously, there is nothing you would do that he would not get to know sooner or later; which brings us to the next rule...

8. NEVER KEEP A SECRET FROM A BRO

Whether you like it or not, your bro would be your first real partner you would meet along the course of life. You get to have fun and do absolutely crazy stuffs together. He is even the one that gets to plan out your bachelor party for you and , who knows, he might be your best man. So it is really a good idea for you not to keep anything from. Tell him things that you know would even make him upset. Also, if you suspect he is keeping something-whether personal or not- from you, encourage him to let it out.That way you keep the truth cycle in motion and there is more confidence and honesty between you two.

7. BRO'S SHOULD NEVER GET EMOTIONAL

Fine this might seem odd and totally debatable, but the truth is that it stands no matter what. True, you share all details with each other, and sometimes this can actually get a bit deep, but never get emotional. Bros must always stand for each other and seriously the sight of guys crying can a bit,... well... unnerving. Moreover, no sending of greeting cards and affectionate items between one another

6. BROS BEFORE FLOWS

Well this might seem like an adoption of the more popular statement "Bro before ho's" but it differs from it in a way. The term 'ho' doesn't really refer to women in general, just the ones the bro is hoping to get something out of. When we are speaking flows, we looking at it in terms of making attempts to get into a conversation with a woman and taking steps to ensure the conversation doesn't turn out to be futile. So basically you should never take a Bro over any woman because the fact the bro would stay with you through thick and thin (or maybe till you eventually get tired of him)

5. BROS SHOULD NEVER DRESS ALIKE EXCEPT IF IN SUITS

Dude seriously don't get deceived that it is cute in any manner. It is totally weird and something you should avoid except, as said earlier, you are in suits. Fine you might get it into head that it is a good thing to match up once in awhile but seriously, it is a no go venture .You guys would even better off sharing the same wardrobe (not also a good idea by the way). Matching suits on the other hand would look formal and class , but you should not really get into the habit of doing it often.

4. ALSO TAKE THE FACE SPLASH FOR YOUR BRO

Ok this is going sound absolute weird but you should never allow your bro to have that drink splashed on his face. Always ensure to stand for him and take it instead. There should never be any excuse of not knowing when the drink is in the process of getting to his face because women always make this inevitable event pretty obvious. A few yawns, random gazes elsewhere and gradually attempts to reach to her drink are more than enough signs for you know it is coming. At that point bro, you know what to do

3. A BRO SHOULD NEVER REVEAL ANOTHER BRO'S SECRET TO A WOMAN

Ok so your bro gets to tell you that deep secret he has apparent not told any one else and for one reason or the other , you think that the girl he has been trying to get should also know this. THUMPS DOWN THERE MAN. Secrets always stay with you and should for no reason be divulged to anyone especially someone of the opposite sex. Even if your bro encourages you to go ahead you should ensure to brush off the idea because your bro might not be in the right mind at that point. Ensure to keep details of your bro simple and no revealing of secrets

2. A BRO SHOULD NEVER COMPLEMENT HIS BRO'S GIRL INFRONT OF HIM

At that point it might seem like a good thing to talk about how good looking your bro's chick or how attractive her body is, but seriously refrain from ever doing this. Believe or not, a bro begins to get suspicious when his calls are not returned and when the is not welcomed during his visits to his special especially after that exquisite compliment you gave her. This would seriously not help keep the bro ship in place and might have drastic effects in the long term. So it is really a good idea to refrain from giving compliments in the first place.

1. ONLY ONE BRO IN THE BROSHIP MUST HAVE THE CREED

Ya well nothing point out here really

You really went to the Barney Stinson school of bro code, that's for sure. But this was a funny read! Great hub!

This is very informative. I never realized one of the rules of Bro Code was taking a splash to the face if a girl throws her drink. We do not have that rule as a part of Girl Code. Well, I guess you learn something new every day. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for the comments and Jeannieinabottle it would definitely not be in the girl's code because as it stands the exchange of drinks is not mutual.
