By the time he becomes Superman, Clark doesn't really seem to have any close relationships with other men. He can't hang out with Pa Kent, have a beer, and ask advice like he did Post-Crisis/Pre-New52 and, apparently, Pete Ross is a bully rather than a friend. Sure, there appears to be the Jor-El hologram, but that isn't exactly a grounded, human relationship. Seems a bit lonely and isolated in a way. He doesn't really have anyone to connect with about being a man. But then again, if Superman/Clark looks like Henry Cavill, I guess it makes sense that he is constantly mobbed by women.
I think Pete goes from bully to friend once Clark saves his ass....
