phrasal verb: hit off


Today, I have a short but useful entry for you about the phrasal verb “hit off”. We use it when we want to talk about having a really good relationship with someone from the first meeting. For example:

I met my wife at a party about six years ago, and we hit it off right away.

I want you to meet my friend Jenny. I think you two will really hit it off.

I had a blind date tonight, but I’m not going to see him again. We just didn’t hit it off.

A: How did you and Ian get along?

B: We’re completely different people, so we didn’t really hit it off.

Please note that we always put the word “it” in the middle. Also, as you can see from my examples, we can use this in both positive and negative sentences. It can be used to talk about both romantic and non-romantic relationships.
