What Does LDE Mean in a Text?

LDE means "Little Dick Energy."

The abbreviation LDE is used online with the meaning "Little Dick Energy." The abbreviation became popular in 2018, shortly after the much more well-known term BDE ("Big Dick Energy"), went viral.

Just as with BDE, LDE has nothing to do with physical endowment. Whereas BDE is used to refer to someone who possesses understated confidence, LDE is used to refer to people (male or female) who are the exact opposite. A person with LDE may be arrogant, petty, loud or otherwise obnoxious. For example:
  • Carly: Mike is trying to make me jealous by talking about girls that come on to him.
  • Robyn: That guy oozes LDE.
  • Jo: My new boss is bursting with LDE.
  • Simon: I know her. She's a pain in the ass.
"Little Dick Energy" is also referred to as "Small Dick Energy" (SDE) and "Mediocre Dick Energy" (MDE).
