Its called brotherhood, comradery, friendship...nothing sexual about it. Men have to bond and know that there are guys just like them out there they can talk about the game with, go shooting with, fight with and know someone has your back, work on cars, tell war stories too, etc.... To have a friend a phone call away that can help you move, help you fix something, etc....again nothing sexual. Women are great, but as we all know a woman cannot understand some things we men are interested in or don't want to do what some of us men do. Just like women who have women friends...because some men want nothing to do with certain aspects of what she likes.
A MAN can love another man....I served with some OUTSTANDING men whom I will love until the end of my life and will do anything for if asked...and the reason we can prefer each others company is because we have common likes and understand each others. There is no "physical attraction", there is no desire....as we all want women, we all want to share the emotional side and feelings we have with a female. There is nothing greater than spending a fun day with the guys and doing our thing to go home to your girl and shut that side off and put someone you love with everything you have in your arms and allow the "softer" side to show....
Again, IMO...it is normal and NEEDED to have fellow men to live life with...share things with....and understand that its ok to love another mn as your brother, your comrade, your friend...and hold onto that...before you know it...its all gone.

Maybe because women mostly don't like doing guy stuff. I said mostly, because while there are some cool ladies out there who aren't afraid of adventure, and relaxin', most of them are wrapped up in social/personal drama, shopping, and other "girl stuff".
why do so many, apparently heterosexual, men seem to prefer men, and their company?
