Filipino word added to the names of women or girls older than you.

Also used in family like "nee-san" in Japanese. For older siblings as a sign of respect.


If some dude you have a crush on calls you Ate it painfully means you're older than him (DUH) and/or he is only interested with being good friends with you. And probably respects your maturity despite the fact that he's older or you're both same aged.
Hi Ate Jane! Thank you for helping me.
