Lead someone on

Lead someone on 


이 표현은 남녀관계에서 친구 이상이라 착각하게 만드는 행위를 일컫는 데에 적절한 표현이다. 당신이 호감을 갖고 연락을 하던 사람이 있다고 해보자. 괜찮긴 한데, 사귀는 것을 생각하면 영 아니다. 그런데 연락을 아주 끊어버리기엔 무언가가 아쉽고, 계속 나를 좋아해줬으면 좋겠다. 그래서 뭔가 가능성이 있는 것 처럼 행동을 했다. 상대방 입장에서는 내가 괜찮으니까 계속 만나고 연락하는 구나 생각하고, 가끔 잔잔한 스킨쉽도 하곤하니, 연애로 이어질 가능성이 있어보인다.


바로 이런 상황이 Lead someone on 이다.


나쁘게 표현하면 => "갖고 놀다" 또는 "어장 관리한다"

순화해서 표현하면 => "착각하게 만들다"


Britney Spears 가 2000 년에 발표한 Oops I did it again 노래 내용을 아는가? 이 노래가 완벽한 lead someone on 의 예제이다.



" I think I did it again. I made you believe, we are more than just friends. "

" It might seem like a crush, but it doesn't mean I'm serious. "


아 또 내가 좋아한다고 착각하게 만들었네.

내가 좋아하는 것 같아 보인다고 해서 내가 진지하게 생각하고 있다는 의미는 아니거든?


그리고 lead someone on 구글로 검색하면 아래와 같은 그림과 글귀를 찾을 수 있다.





" 누군가를 사랑하지 않는다면, 착각하게 만들지 말고, 만약 사랑한다면, 숨김없이 마음을 보여주세요. "




You were so lead on.

동사로도 사용 가능하지만, 명사나 형용사 처럼도 활용 가능하다.


"Dude, I met this girl a month ago, we had dates a few times but it turned out that she had a boyfriend"

"Man, you were so lead on"


"야 한달 전 쯤에 얘 만나서 몇 번 데이트 했는데, 알고보니 남자친구 있더라."

"ㅋ 완전 어장관리 당했네"











Lead someone on 


This expression can be used to indicate the deceiving behavior that makes someone believe that somebody is attracted to him or her. Imagine you recently met someone and went on a date once or twice. That person seems pretty nice but when it comes to the boy/girl friend material, you don't think you can go on a serious relationship with the person. But losing touch with that person is somewhat you don't wanna do, and you even wish that person could keep loving you. So you deliberately made some moves that gave that person false hope. Regrettably, the victim would think that I got a chance to develop the relationship further because I'm able to go on a date with my love and sometime a few touches like holding hands, a brief kiss on a chick, and etc are allowed.


This is exactly when leading someone on makes sense.


To put it in disgrace manner => "have someone on the hook", "played with someone's heart"

To put it in a dictionary manner => "mislead or deceive someone"


Have you heard the song, Oops I did it again by Britney Spears released in 2000? This is the perfect example of leading someone on.



" I think I did it again. I made you believe, we are more than just friends. "

" It might seem like a crush, but it doesn't mean I'm serious. "


If you google "lead someone on", you're going to see these images below.






You were so lead on.

You can use this as a verb, but also can use it like a noun or adjective.


"Dude, I met this girl a month ago, we had dates a few times but it turned out that she had a boyfriend"

"Man, you were so lead on"
