NBD or no biggie, as it is popularly put, is a widespread response when you don’t want someone to take something on their nerves when the situation is chill. It often acts as a calming or soothing agent for the person on the other end of the screen when he has just rejected your plan or dropped a big bomb (information wise) on you.

There is, however, another way to look at this acronym. A lot of times people use NBD to cover up their true feelings about a particular thing. There is a high possibility that they aren’t okay with something but just to avoid the awkward situation that often follows, they use this slang instead.

Some make NBD sound total savage when they use it to troll someone or more like rub it in their face. Either way, in all these situations, NBD often comes out as a very soft acronym, usually harmless.
