(Newser) – Men looking to be swept off their feet—in a “strictly platonic” kind of way—know where to go: Craigslist, where ads seeking bromance are pouring in. A few of the best, as reported by the Frisky:

  • “Having just watched the movie I Love You, Man (which was the funniest I’ve seen in a while), I realize I need to meet a guy(s) for some bromance,” writes a 44-year-old.

  • “Looking for someone genuinely into hanging out and enjoying each other’s company,” posts a 25-year-old. “If you’re interested in grabbing a drink and seeing if a friendship shakes out then write a bit about yourself.”
  • “I don’t feel compelled to pretend I’m some macho #&@$% without emotion not linked to inflated levels of testosterone,” writes a 32-year-old. “So here I am, trolling craigslist for chums.”
