BRO Why did you develop the app?
You may not have realised, however, that BRO is also the name of a new social app just for men. For me, this is supposed to be a safe space for men to meet up and make meaningful relationships.
But maybe that kind of behaviour doesn't have to be restricted to the 'straight' male community. Some of our users may be the same people on Grindr, but people behave differently in different spaces.

Most of the people I chatted to on there said that they identified as gay. I went for 'casual bro', because that one seemed to require the least thought.
How do you cater for all types of people when some may fall through the cracks between different 'types'? Originally published 29 January Maybe it's all pretty straightforward.
People have called it an app for straight men because of the de, the logo, the name, the fact that interactions include 'fist-bumps'. Like I'm doing it all in secret.
Let's get Then, there were a few articles, like one in Queerty, which made the app into a place lookinf straight men looking for other straight men to get oral sex in secret. One part of that may include straight men dating one another, but that was not the sole purpose.
First of all, the 'about me' section is pretty straightforward, gun there is one interesting section in there If this app is the thing that someone needs to open up about themselves, then great. Like BRO's mission statement puts it, a place, "for men that are interested in meeting other men… as simple as that". You see faces.
I disagree. People have taken it as an app for confused people. I think that's all it is, anyway.
On further investigation, I think it might be a bit more nuanced than that. Your gets mine your gets mine as well let's get to know nsz othrr. It's because I'm in a happy relationship and I wouldn't want the missus or her mates catching me on there Only one way to find out, I suppose.
That's not because I'm a homophobe who doesn't want to be tarnished with homosexuality. It also appears a lot like a hook-up app.
I mean, in the app, you choose what 'type' of bro you are — from 'jock' to 'fabulous'. Looking for 40 Mrs.
Maybe we're just thinking about it too much though. This app has caused lo of media speculation because, in some ways, it all seems so confusing. After all, isn't that, in itself, just conforming to another socially-constructed idea of gender and sexuality? We built up 32, Facebook fans before launch.
So is it a place for straight, manly men to date other straight, manly men?
