The term "bromance" became popular during the 2000s, especially. Actually, there was an episode of "How I Met Your Mother" (2005-2014), where Marshall unintentionally enters as "bromance" with his coworker. It wasn't "weird" per se, but Marshall ironically makes it seem like it is.

"Isn't it Bromantic?" from Lyssa Kay Adams touches on the concept of a "bromance", in the form of an all-male book club. To be more specific, these men start a romance book club so they can understand "what goes wrong" in their own relationships. These guys are dedicated. Yes, it's silly but it's in good heart. The characters in this book want to save their marriages, and understand their partner better.

"The girl you proposed to, she wasn't the one you knew when you were younger. That girl was gone. She disappeared along with her father. And in her place was a terrified and lonely person who had no idea what she was supposed to do next, and then you came along like a white knight. When you proposed, it was like you'd thrown me a life preserver. I clung to it. To you. But when I overheard that conversation with your father , it was like finding out that life preserver was actually an anchor. It just dragged me further under. Once again, I was nothing but a burden."
I loved this book! This was my favourite book in the series. I loved all the "cheese" references, the bros from the book club had me laughing out loud and the romance was cute. Also, the Russian writing a romance novel was the best thing I seen! Besides that, the bros discussing the "kissing" scene and the tropes they like! Hilarious.
