1) Originally, β€œdude” meant a stuck up person who dressed overly well. It first emerged in the year 1883 in England.

2) Later it was used in the old west to mean a city person who moved to the west without actually know what he was doing. Synonymous with β€œcity-slicker”

3) Later, in California, the term changed from these insults to a term meaning any male, human or otherwise. Sometimes it is used in reference to tom-girls. Now, it is often used for emphasis as well.
β€œLook at that rich fellow; what a dude! Do you see the feather in his hat?”

β€œWhat’s that dude doing in these parts? I bet he can't even ride a horse!”

β€œHey dude, I missed you at the movies the other day!”

β€œDude, that's harsh.”
