Soap opera fans love their favorite shows mostly due to the romance and love stories that unravel, but what happens when two fellas find a connection together in a nonsexual way? A bonefide bromance, that’s what happens! While the term ‘bromance’ seems to have reached a fever pitch popularity in today’s pop culture, men having been bonding with other men for years on soaps. Below is a list of seven of the best soap opera bromances:
7. GH’s Sonny Corinthos and Stone Cates
Could one really call this a bromance? They weren’t related by blood, but General Hospital’s (GH) Sonny did take a young Stone under his wing and treated him much like a little brother or even a son. Watching Sonny support Stone (and Robin) during Cates’ final days battling AIDS was an endearing thing. Sure, the mobster was ruthless, but when it came to those he cared about he had a heart of gold. He even ended up paying for Stone’s hospital bills. With illegal money, of course, but still.
