Wey depends means Dude NEW

Wey / Güey means dude.

It's a word that gets its intention from the tone of the phrase.

Its use is not well seen in women, although it can happen.

WEY also said between women NEW

Wey (In Spanish güey) is used as "dude", "man", when talking to somebody who is somehow close to you like a friend, and not precisely in a negative way, It's just a way to call each other, also between women they say to each other "wey", I am woman, when I was in highschool all my girlfriends used to call each other with this word.

Guys only?

I said this to a cook at my work, because I heard them call eachother it & I also heard other servers call them it as well. I'm a girl, and when I said it, even though I speak Spanish, they all laughed. And I wasn't sure why. Maybe only guys can call eachother that? And maybe cause I said gracias with it.. "Gracias guey"
But I felt really awkward when they were all laughing and I wasn't sure why.

When I dated a guy straight from Mexico, he and his brother used to call eachother guay after every sentence. I asked and he said it refers to the person as a man with no balls.

I am not totally positive but only the men say it to other men. I once heard that it was slang for "dude" in spanish. But I'm really not sure.
