I never did in my adult life, so past the age of 18.

I did once when I was 16-17... nothing serious, accidently allowed myself to get hit on by a girl who was the girlfriend of a friend of mine. She hit on me online, I thought it was my friend takin' a piss at me... turned out it was true. I agreed to see her, she actually turned up!
Anyway, nothing happened but never told my friend.

The violations were that I did hit on my friends' girl (even thought it was unintentional) and I saw his girlfriend... and that I didn't tell him what happened. Which again, nothing happened, just had a drink and joked around... she tried flirting, I skiddadled out of there on false pretense.

No. The bro code is the most holy of books and its rules establish one of man's most important bonds: the bro bond.

Never broke it.

Stickiest situation was when my brothers GF was out visiting a friend of hers in Vegas when I was living there. They both came over (I was living there at the time) and she was very, very friendly....very. I decided that it would be a good idea to go out for a change of scenery which quelled things. I've never told him about it but she blew things with him anyway when they were talking marriage and he found out she'd run a background check on him. I guess it just goes to show that people often have reasons for their suspicions:lol:

I dated my cousin's ex. Almost married her. There's no such thing as "bro code".

I broke this one:
27: A Bro doesn't grow a mustache.
But it's ok because it was something stupid everyone was doing, and so...
2: A bro is always allowed to do something stupid as long as his bro’s are doing it.

You guys actually need a handbook for this? :lamo



Long after my time... but there's always been a code of sorts, about not messing with your good friend's girlfriend... let alone wife.


I broke that once, when I was 15. It started when my cousin, who was a close friend, accused me of "getting with" his GF, and we came close to getting in a fight over it... I was REALLY PO'ed because I had done NOTHING with her and had not even SEEN her on the night in question.

I was so pissed off that the next time I DID run into her... and for some reason she came on to me, which was a new thing, and probably a revenge thing against my cuz more than anything else... anyway, I said "frack it" and figured if I was going to get hung over it I might as well DO the crime...

... which led to me staring down the barrel of a 38 not long after. I suppose I'm fortunate Cuz wasn't QUITE pissed enough to pull the trigger.


I determined never to repeat that particular mistake again. But hey, I was 15, and she WAS pretty darn hot.

yep, one of my deepest regrets
they wound up divorcing
i convinced her to take the car and a small amount of cash and be done with it
at the time i was dating her best friend
he never learned of my disloyalty, but the three others of us all know
soon thereafter he became interested in my gf and proposed a swap
the girls were for it. it happened
but i know of my betrayal and have regretted it these 35 years
the only consolation is that his next divorce cost him $1 million and a house
so, while i try to justify to myself that she kept coming onto me and that i ultimately did him a favor, making his first divorce cheap
what i did was nothing other than horribly wrong. one of those few times in life that i would want a 'do-over' to avoid the lifetime of regret. my deepest regret
the four of us are remain very close friends to this day. i am the only one who is still married
