What does NBD stand for?

No big deal

NBD is a popular slang term that stands for “no big deal”. It’s used when someone wants to make light of a situation, showing that it’s not a big issue. This can be used in many different situations to keep things casual and relaxed.

Imagine if your brother thanks you for giving him a ride to the airport. You could respond with, “NBD, happy to help!” Or, let’s say your best friend feels bad about forgetting to call you on your anniversary. You could reassure her by saying, “NBD! We can always catch up later.”

At times, people use NBD to come off as modest or cool. For instance, if you express amazement at your coworker’s guitar skills, they might shrug it off saying, “It’s NBD, I just enjoy playing.” Some folks might use NP (No Problem) as an alternative to NBD.
