1)It's a tagalog word meaning, brother. Though many filipinos use it to call a guy older than them with respect, even if they're not relatives.

2)Furthermore, a girl can call someone "kuya" as to cockblock him, emphasizing that the guy is only a brother to her, nothing more.
1) I can call my kuya Francis anytime for advice.
2) When the girl Jon was talking to started calling him Kuya, he knew the she didn't want to be involved with him.

Is what JON, FRANCIS & CHARLES are called by some women or a majority of women that they come across.

You call them Kuya because either:

1. They are really older than you.

2. You want make sure they know that you don't want to date them.

3. You're just flat out mean!!!
