ok not being compleatly up to date with english slang, I need this clarified.
When someone says I pulled a guy/girl ( last night) does it mean slept with or just snogged. I was told it meant snogged, but my mum says it means sleeping with someone.
When I use it, I mean kissed as in "getting off" with someone (where I'm from this just means making out).
It depends - varies between regions and social groups. For me and my friends, "pulling" is just kissing; at school we called that "getting off" but I wouldn't use that any more. I'm not sure what we'd call pulling someone and then having sex with them on the first night, because nearly all my friends are in relationships and so we don't do that!
As far as i always knew pulled means snogging (with tongues).
I always thought "getting off" meant shagging (or something sexual) because if you "got someone off" it means they orgasmed...
Hmz, slang is confusing.
My friends and i had great fun with a mate who speaks perfect English (but he's French) as he didn't know any slang cos all the English he knew was taught from his parents. Introducting him to Cockney Rhyming Slang was muchos enjoyable - he thought we were making it up and had to wikipedia it when he got home before he believed it.
Since we're on that subject...if you pulled someone, does that mean they kissed you first or vice versa? (or does it not matter?) To me, if I 'pulled' someone, then that means they made the move on me (ie. i have seduced them to make them make the first move, therefore i have 'pulled' them)
My bf thinks that if i pulled someone, then i would have initiated the kiss. Yeah its all a bti complicated.
