Who doesn't love a good bromance? Some of the best and most iconic bromances were established on television, and are continuously referenced to this day.
Bromances allow two male characters to establish a strong bond where they can express their desires and feelings without feeling any sort of judgment. Most bromances erase the idea of toxic masculinity and allow men to be themselves.

Yet, chemistry is something that can't be contained, and it's hard to deny that the men in these bromances had more between them than just friendship.
Romance was definitely in the air for these pairings, even if these guys won't admit it.
Which TV bromance do you think should've been a romance? Let us know in the comments below!
Dean and Castiel - Supernatural
These two have literally been through hell and back together, and despite all the obstacles thrown in their way, they always manage to find their way back to each other. Dean Winchester has never been able to find a girl that was truly right for him, but perhaps that's because Castiel is his true soulmate! With one final season left, maybe these two bros will open their eyes and see that they are meant for each other.
Bert and Ernie - Sesame Street
Bert and Ernie defined the term bromance, but it's 2019 and it's high time these two "roommates" admit what everyone else knows, there is much more between them than a bromance. Perhaps if Bert and Ernie admit their true feelings once and for all the rest of these bromances won't be afraid to do the same. Sesame Street is an accepting place, Bert and Ernie, so be free and explore your love!
Jake and Charles - Brooklyn Nine-Nine
The way Charles looks at Jake leaves the rest of us filled with jealousy. Jake may be married to Amy, but it's clear to everyone at the Nine-Nine that Charles loves Jake more than anyone. He's the most loyal, encouraging, and loveable bro any man could ask for. We've seen these two men share a lot together, and while a romance will never happen now that both men are with others, it was evident from the beginning that what Charles felt for Jake was way more than friendship. If only Jake reciprocated those feelings.
Archie and Kevin - Riverdale
Jughead may seem like the obvious bromance turned romance partner for Archie, but that line shouldn't be crossed for that pairing. However, another bromance on Riverdale that is often overlooked is that of Kevin and Archie. The two have been close friends for years, and if their wrestling match was any indication, the two have some serious physical chemistry. Kevin has also been there for Archie through some of his most difficult times, and loyalty is something Archie should be looking for in a partner. Archie has practically dated all the girls in Riverdale already, why not give it a shot with his bro?
Cory and Shawn - Boy Meets World
Boy Meets World may tout Cory and Topanga as the OTP of the show, but let's be real that title belonged to Cory and Shawn since day one. These two have known each other their whole lives, and no matter who or what tried to come between them, they always reunited, happier than they were before. Even Topanga has admitted multiple times that she'll never measure up to Shawn in Cory's eyes. Shawn is Cory's soulmate, and while Cory and Topanga are amazing, we can't help but wonder what could've been if these two pals admitted they wanted to be more than friends.
Matt and Landry - Friday Night Lights
Despite stereotypes that say otherwise, the football field is the perfect place to develop a strong bromance. While Matt and Landry were friends long before either played for the Dillion Panthers, it was the time they shared on the field that made their bromance so special. Whenever either was having a problem with their lady loves, they turned to each other. Their chemistry was unmistakable, and Julie and Tyra should've been worried because what these two shared was more than a friendship. Matt and Landry are a partnership that will last forever.
