Ultimate Bro Code Rules For Every Guy

It's like a binding agreement between two or more parties. The bro code rules must be followed at all times. I mean all times. If anyone breaks a rule, there’s definitely going to be consequences.

Some call it “bromance” or “bro-hood,” there are other names for bro code. Sometimes, environment has her own code. Situations define the bro code to use too. But in all, only men understand the bond they share with their other Y-chromosomed brethren - smiles.
The Bro code
Learning the bro code is like getting a degree in human anatomy.


Some call it “bromance” or “bro-hood,” there are other names for bro code. Sometimes, environment has her own code. Situations define the bro code to use too. But in all, only men understand the bond they share with their other Y-chromosomed brethren - smiles.

It’s not the kind of relationship they have with girls or even with their own biological brother, but that unspoken and totally platonic kind of love between “bros.”


Is it really a surprise there are bro code rules only guys know and understand perfectly how to use them?

Brohood is a kind of bond that explains how bros get away with trading insults as a form of a greeting. How they get along despite all the dangerous and embarrassing pranks they pull on each other, and how they still share a beer and laugh immediately after a fierce fight.

Don't bother thinking about this if you aren't a bro. Girls don't have this form or type of language. Theirs is little bit different.


They have a strict girl code that all female friends must follow if they want zero drama and for their friendships to last the test of time. Guys are no different, except some of the bro code rules tend to be a little difficult to understand for those outside the inner circle.

So then, what is a bro?

A bro-code is many things, but a bro is not an ordinary male friend. Bros do a lot of things for and with their bros. It could be good, bad, funny, dangerous or even stupid and idiotic.

This is way more than friendship, it’s a close bond that is more likely to survive your best relationship. It can survive a huge amount that life can throw at it. It can thrive through thick and thin, seeing relationships come and go. Bros in this circle could have being in several relationships but the bro-code still binds them strong.

You don't want to mess with the bro-code.

Bros can be childhood friends that grew up together or they can meet and instantly click like butter and cheese. Just imagine football fans... 🀣. 

Unlike the female squadron, however, bros don’t tend to be cast away from the group very easily.

"Girl code sucks"

Bros tend to put up with a little more in some ways, but that is dependent on the amount of bro code rules that participants have drafted and agreed to live by.

Why is the guy code rules so different and sacred compared to the girl code?

The Bro code rules gives you an idea on how to maintain guy friendships with your fellow bros. There are certain lines you can cross, and lines you dare not cross. In a sense, this is the guys’ definition of setting firm boundaries.

Whether it’s getting together with your friend’s ex or something as silly as bets, it’s important to observe all the rules. Your ability to maintain friendships general relationships for the rest of eternity depends on keeping or sticking to certain rules. But in this case, bro codes.

Now, if you break a code, you can expect all your friends to either be mad at you, resent you, or even hate you. Yes, it’s that critical.


So, what are the bro code rules?

Note: in most cases, there's no contract that is handed to bros when they realize that they are indeed in the middle of a bro situation. It’s something that’s unsaid but extremely sacred to the deep friendship they share.

Let’s call these codes bro-mandments. This is the bro code rules that all bros must follow.

1. Bros before the other gender-girls.
This rule is the foundation of being a bro and is said to have preceded even the concept of the bro code.

In this rule, a bro must put his fellow bro first (a bro becomes a priority) over the pursuit of the other gender.

2. Immediate girl family members of other bros are totally off limits.
This means a bro shall never lay hands on another bro’s sister. Notwithstanding, a bro can comment on their attractiveness.

Stepmoms and stepsisters are an exception but this is a gray area as some bros may not enjoy non-blood relatives being commented upon. Proceed with caution!πŸ˜‚

3. A bro must have another bro’s back always.
A bro must be there for his bro in times of need, be it financial difficulty, the pursuit of girls, fistfights, and drunken nights. Nothing else must get in the way of this and he should ask no questions but defends his bro.

4. A bro shall not block another bro in the pursuit of happiness 🀣
If a bro liked a girl first, you serve as his wingman just like you have it in soccer game and don’t ruin his chances. Whether you liked her or not, is now secondary. His remains primary.


5. With reference to #4, A bro’s girlfriend and any ex is also off limits.
Meaning no bro can sleep, flirt, or make lewd comments about their bro’s current girlfriend or exes. To do this is a huge breach of law of the bro code rules and could result in fights and casting out of the circle and you become like the prodigal son.

6. Girl bros are off-limits too.
A bro is not to make sexual and romantic advances to a girl bro unless to tease her. She is to be seen as one of the bros and not sexual or attractive in any way.
In this context, there are girls that become part and parcel of the bro code as they're commonly called in some quarters "girl-boy".

7. Girls can be bros too
Bros must acknowledge girls with bro-like qualities. When a girl acts like a bro and follows the code, she is accorded equal protection and respect. Which means …

8.  You must greet your bro the right way.
A hug cannot come before a handshake, it must be accompanied by a pat on the back. If you observe guy friendships in movies, there’s a reason why there are always handshakes or a pat on the back. Else it becomes a girl-code.

9. Avoid uncomfortable urinal confrontations.
A bro shall not take the urinal beside another bro. You must leave at least one empty urinal in between a bro. You must  respect your personal space and boundaries.

10. If you catch a bro’s girlfriend or wife cheating, you must alert the bro every time.
No mater  the consequences, you must inform the bro immediately. Your bro comes before everything else, and even though you know he will be angry, you just must do your duty. It's an invisible contract.


11. When a bro finds another bro’s girlfriend annoying, he must stay silent until they break up

12. Always respect your bro’s choices. Even if it doesn’t suit your preferences. Unless they ask for your opinion.

13. When a bro’s wife/girlfriend asks you where he is, you reply "I have no idea".
Even if you know where he is, if he’s standing right in your nose, you have no idea. You haven’t seen him. You have no clue, you haven't heard from him all day, blah blah.. You must not have an idea... Remember, bro comes first, that includes protecting his interest.

14. Never speak about it again rule.
If you accidentally touch another bro below the belt, it’s already agreed upon as an accident and there will be no mention of it ever.
15. You must inform a bro if he is horribly dressed.
Unless you’re also wearing the same outfit, then rock it together.

16. Unless your friend murdered someone, you must bail them out of jail
You go to the bank, collect all your pennies, and hand them over to the police. He’ll pay you back, don’t worry. You must, at all times have their back.

17. If your drunk bro is about to cheat on his partner, you must follow through with just one intervention.
Make him aware of the choice he is about to make and if he replies with “f*ck you,” then the bro code rules exempt you from any responsibility at that time.

18. Bros pitch in for beer when cash is short.
If a bro is lacking in cash in the middle of a round of drinks, you should cover for him. That's what bros do.

19. Pranking a bro is bonding.
Only ensure it doesn't lead to financial lost, a trip to the hospital, no negativity or harm should be recorded.

20. A bet's a bet

21. Wingman duties.
If you have a girlfriend and go out to the club with your friends, you are automatically given the job as wingman. Do your best to support them in finding a girl.

22. Bros never make their friends feel uncomfortable.


23. Respect another bro’s boundaries.
You must know where to draw the line. Everyone have boarder line and you must understand where their line is and don't cross it for any reason or you just broke an important code. 

24. Act as your bro’s cybersecurity.
If something unexpected and tragic happens to a bro, one of the first things you must do is wipe his browser history. You must protect their privacy at all costs. That's bro code for you.

25. Bros don’t brag about how many girls they’ve slept with.

26. Bros don’t let bros drive home intoxicated.
This is an important part of the bro code especially when hanging out. You all can't be intoxicated at the same time. So watch out for a bro who's taking too much already.

Dish out the money for a cab, and hand him the receipt the next morning. Safety should be your priority when you’re dealing with a drunk bro. #BroCode.

Don’t for any reason let him drive. Even if he insists on doing so. If something bad happens to him while driving, that's on you.

27. Back up your bro.
If your friend gets into a fight and you’re unable to calm the situation, back your friend. Even if he’s wrong and an idiot, he’s your idiot. πŸ€”πŸ€£πŸ€£

Loyalty is an integral part of the bro code rules, so you need to always have their back. If you don’t, maybe you shouldn’t be hanging out with this person in the first place.

28. Don’t give a bro advice on working out unless he asks you.
He realizes he doesn't have six-pack, he has a mirror. Giving out unsolicited advice makes you sound like an a-hole in the face of a bro.

29. Best man, best wildest act of the night.
If given the title of best man at your bro’s wedding, you’re also entitled with the duty of preparing the bachelor party.

30. You must have at least a suit.
This can be worn to functions like weddings, funerals, graduations, and special dates. Plus, you’ll look smart. If you don’t own even a single suit in your wardrobe, then you’re completely πŸ€”missing out.

31. Bros must never ever share dessert. It's absurd in the bro code.

32.  A bro must return the favor when another bro buys a round of drinks. Some people call it normal level or I scratch your back, you scratch my back.

33. A bro never subscribes to Netflix to watch a movie or show alone. This must be done in the presence of his fellers. Else, it's like breaking the 10 commandments after Moses.
