    I find myself saying dude a lot in normal convo. I hardly ever say bro, actually it leaves a bad taste in my mouth.

    Are you a dude or bro?

    I'm more likely to say dude than bro. I usually don't know what to say though. Sometimes it's dude, other times man. I think dude is a little safer than bro. Growing up in So Cal, dude has just been used around me alot

    I feel like "bro" is more of a NY/NJ thing..... northeast USA thing maybe...


    dude is pretty much regional US, however heavily used in California

    Man, I grew up when every one said "man."

    Occasionally I use "dude" for extra emphasis. I don't know how that got started.

    But mainly I'm a "man."

    Somebody once showed me "the dude shell." He had changed the unix command prompt to "Dude! Like, "

    I don't think I've ever said either aloud. Maybe "guy."

    'Dude' has been around here in California a long time. I'm not sure when I picked it up but I use it mostly only in jest.

    'Bro' isn't something I feel comfortable with. A generational thing, I guess. Seems fitting when younger guys use it between themselves but for me it would just feel awkward and pretentious.

    I say 'man' almost always when I meet/talk with friends. Just a habit I guess.
