  • by hitting that subscribe button and the bell  down below to not miss any of our new lessons

  • alright let's get started so there's a lot of  dating and tv shows so we'll start out looking at  

  • this word in its most basic sense so you probably  already know the word date in its noun form  

  • and that of course is an occasion in which two  people who are romantically interested in each  

  • other share a moment however I found that very few  learners actually use this word in its verb form  

  • and a date of course can also be a person that you are dating  

  • now there's also a couple phrases that we use  with the word date and that is to go on a date  

  • or go out on a date or to ask someone out on  a date let's look at some examples with each  

  • So we can also shorten this phrase to go out on a date to just to go out  

  • and somewhere to say that you are dating someone  you could just say you are seeing someone

  • now let's learn some words that  

  • can be used to describe someone who is involved  in dating activity so based on the context in  

  • this example can you imagine what it means to be  forward

  • So as you can see in that clip this woman was direct in her intentions  so basically in this context what it means is that  

  • you are not shy about letting someone know that  you are interested in them the next word we'll  

  • look at is one that can be used in many different  ways to flirt flirtatious flirtation or flirting  

  • Now let's continue with that clip  from two and a half men which offers some  

  • really great and relevant phrasal verbs

  • if you hit on someone you act in a way that  lets you know you're interested in that person  

  • And to turn someone down means to reject someone

  • so if someone asks you on a date and you turn  them down you're saying no

  • so we're just getting  

  • started really we have a lot more vocabulary and  expressions for dating for you but as you can  

  • already see you can really just learn a ton of  vocabulary and expressions in a really fun way  

  • with your favorite tv series and this is because  they tend to be about people's everyday lives

  • series out there for learning english and this  is because of the language and situations that  

  • we encounter in it and of course you won't just  learn vocabulary for dating you'll learn really

  • really great phrasal verbs for dating so now  something single men might do is go to a bar or  

  • club and try to pick up women if you watch howmet your mother you know barney stinson is famous for this.  

  • and while we're on  the subject of phrasal verbs probably the  

  • worst thing that could happen to you if you're on  a date is getting stood up by someone

  • if you get stood up it means that  the other person didn't show up or didn't appear  

  • to the date all right so now let's learn some  expressions and idioms that are related to dating  

  • the first one that we'll look at is if someone  is out of your league

  • now this means  

  • that you believe that that other person is  far too beautiful or too much of a higher  

  • social status to possibly want to go out on  a date with you

  • next is a very informal way to refer to a person's 

  • ability to seduce someone else pay attention  in this clip to the highlighted expression  

  • so we would generally say this of a man if a man  has game basically he's good at dating but in the  

  • clip we actually saw the collocation lay game now  laying game would basically mean to seduce someone  

  • however this is not as common ofcollocation

  • now we also might say that a man who has game  is a stud or a player

  • the next expression is a bit of a funny  one

  • so we also saw this expression in our lesson with katy perry
