    Default past

    Hi,

    What is difference between ;

    - I was clicking.
    - I clicked.

    And when should I use each one.

    Without more context, neither of them makes much sense.

    I might come back to this question later. I'd be able to find it more easily if the title had been I was clicking​, so I probably won't bother.

    ***** NOT A TEACHER *****

    Good morning, SecurityLenux:

    (1) "To click" means many things.

    (a) Sometimes it means that you become very comfortable with someone/something.

    (2) Tom was lonely. He wanted a girlfriend. So one day he went to a coffeehouse. (Of course, he did not go to a bar!)

    He met Mona. They clicked immediately (they liked each other very quickly). Tomorrow Tom and Mona have a date to see a

    movie and then have dinner. He promises to take her home by 9 p.m. Mona is a good girl, and Tom is a gentleman.

    (3) Tom went to a coffeehouse because he was lonely. He met Mona. They started talking and laughing. Tom was really

    clicking with her (making a good impression on her) when SUDDENLY a big guy came to their table and said, "Hey, dude,

    Mona is my girlfriend!" Tom left the coffeehouse.
