set up

2021.06.17

Meaning:

‘Set up’ has many, many meanings, and many uses. One use is ‘to set someone up’, meaning ‘to find a date for someone’. For example, one guy might say to another, ‘I’m looking for a girlfriend. Do you have any single friends? Can you set me up?’ Just note that because set up has many meanings, you may need to give context when you use this phrasal verb. For example, ‘Can you set me up on a date?’

Example:

A: I envy you and Bruce. You’re such a cute couple. How did you guys meet?
B: My friend from work set us up. He knew we both like camping.
A: Nice. I wish I could get set up, but dating during Coronavirus is just too hard.

Talking Point(s):
