Like BRO's mission statement puts it, a place, "for men that are interested in meeting other men… as simple as that". For me, this is supposed to be a safe space for men to dscreet up and make meaningful relationships. You see faces.
I disagree. You may not have realised, however, that BRO is also the name of a new social app just for men. This app has caused lo of media speculation because, in some ways, it all seems so confusing.

So is it a place for straight, manly men to date other straight, manly men?
We built up 32, Facebook fans before launch. Most of the people I chatted to on there said that they identified as gay.

If this app is the thing that someone needs to open up about themselves, then discrewt. Maybe we're just thinking about it too much though.
