Typically, "man" or "guy". It's origins are unknown, but it is unlikely to have come from the the Midlands in the UK, as suggested by one user. It is used commonly in the UK and Australia, although it has usage in Canada and the USA too.

It's earliest recorded usage was in Cab Calloway's 1931 recording 'Minnie The Moocher' where he sings "She messed around with a bloke named smokey, she loved him..." It has been used more frequently in Kanye West's collaboration with the UK's Estelle

Now this bloke, he's always down the pub with a pint of ale in one hand, and a fag in the other or in the caff with a full english and a cuppa with four sugars. His teeth are stained and rotten. He's in boot cut jeans with a brown belt and a nicotine stained jacket. Every time he laughs he sprays his mouthful of old bar peanuts and wheezes til he's red in the face. His beer belly ranges from dad-bod to rotund. He either ignores his kids, is a cunt to them (think jay's dad in inbetweeners) or beats them.

I see their are some Americans I suspect of French or Ukranian origin on this site who have a grudge against the British. For your information the word 'bloke' is similar to the American 'dude' except that it is more symbolic of a regular guy. In other words it's connotation is not as gay as 'dude'.
Some bloke picked a fight with us on the street yesterday.

Australian slang for a male. However, more specifically refers to the stereotypical view of a typical Australian man. The average bloke has a beer gut, a thick, bushy, stubble beard and very short hair, as to not have his masculinity questioned. He is homophobic, lazy, overweight, crude and finds nothing more humorous than toilet humour. He spends most of his time watching cricket or football or going on fishing trips with his mates. He will make sure any male children he has are playing sport at a very young age and teach them that feelings are only for women and ‘faggots.’ Any female children he has will get much less attention then their brother/s. He will also show little to no affection for his wife beyond a sexual manner, in case this is interpreted as being ‘gay.’ He is usually, but not always, some form of tradesmen such as a plumber or builder.
Sally: Henry used to be so sweet. Now he just sits on the couch drinking beer and watching sport all day.

Julie: Mark is exactly the same. I’ll never understand blokes.

Chuck: Jay, I can’t believe Stacy dumped you for Max. All he does is get drunk and talk about football.

Jay: I know! I was dumped for a bloke!
