To those you use it all the time, it is a word for all occasions.
- the universal pronoun.
- the end to all sentences.
- a word that describes anything
- a name for everyone you know... and those you don't know.

To those who know its true hidden meaning, it is used to describe the few and the proud of the male gender who aren't like your typical guy. Strong, sensitive, fun-loving, whatever a girl is looking for, without the usual ass-holeness. In short, one in a million, the pinicale of perfection... gay/bi/or straight.

antonym: guy, jerk, player, typical guy

synonyms: nice guy, white knight

see also: white knight syndrome
- That dude just hit my car
- So I ran past the truck and... dude.
- Man, that's so... dude!
- Hey, Dude, pass me a cold one!

- "You're not just a guy, you're a dude.
