  • Other recent "bro" blends are a bit more macho: brogrammer (bro + programmer), "a programmer who behaves in a stereotypically frat-boy manner"; bromance (bro + romance) "a close but nonsexual relationship between two men"; and brodeo (bro + rodeo), "a social gathering primarily or exclusively of men."
