Resolved questions
A couple of questions.

1. Is it likely nowadays to hear in conversations the expression like " You dig? " in the meaning of " Do you understand? "

2. Since there's an expression " buddy boy " I hear used, might be equally the form of the " buddy girl " circulate around? I'm not sure for I have never encountered with.

Thank you.

    1: No, not common. It would normally be used if someone was trying to sound like a hippy.
    2: No - Not Buddy Girl. Buddy Boy is something of a 'Male Bonding' term.
    Yuriy's reference to fuck-buddy is (deliberately or ignorantly) completely unrelated.
