Braux Pas

What does Braux Pas mean?

Weird situation between two or more guy friends

Braux Pas is a phrase that captures those uncomfortable situations that can happen between two guys, whether they’re friends or just know each other casually. It’s a play on the well-known term “faux pas”, but it’s all about those cringe-worthy instances specific to guys, like a messed-up handshake.

This term comes in handy when you want to describe a moment that’s not just awkward, but also specifically male in nature. It’s not about any awkward moment, but those that are related to typical bro-to-bro interactions.

So, next time when you’re with your buddies and someone screws up a high-five or says something that just doesn’t land right, you know what to call it – it’s a Braux Pas.
