The signs of a basic bro are many - if he plays drinking games long after college has ended, brags that he could bench press you, revs his engine to show off, wears AXE body spray, and goes to Hooters regularly, chances are you're dating a basic white guy. If you've heard the guy you're dating say, "Make me a sandwich, woman," even jokingly, you're all but guaranteed to be dating a bro.

Basic bro behavior is also contradictory and a bit mystifying: he shouts "No homo!" at any sign of affection between him and his friends, yet draws d*cks on them if they're passed out drunk and pretend dry-humps them. He has the latest gadgets and electronics, yet is seemingly always out of toilet paper and his only cleaning supplies are Windex and Clorox wipes. This bro lives to party, and chances are he was a frat boy in college - yet even though he graduated, he's never outgrown that time-honored activity: the keg stand. He lives for Coachella and Vegas, and often takes trips with his "boys."

Yet which is worse - that he spends a good chunk of money betting on fantasy football every year, or that he doesn't even bother to hide his porn collection? Only you can decide! Vote up the most ridiculous and accurate signs that you're dating a basic bro, and watch out for those guys wearing backwards baseball caps and sleeveless shirts, showing off their tribal tattoos.
