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.

A person of male gender to whom you are not sexually attracted and will never be. This is the opposite of a guy, to whom you could be sexually attracted.
That guy is definitely a dude. I would never date him.

Forget the fancy explanations for this. It simply replaces "man."
"Man it's hot." becomes: "Dude. It's hot"

"I failed my test. Man!" becomes: "I failed my test. Dude!"
