    Default Re: one on one, or one to one?

    man to man - from man to man -- a private conversation between two men.
    e.g.
    Let`s have a talk from man to man [usually used in a dispute]


    See you,

    See you,
    Correct meaning but you would say man to man not from man to man.

    Hi, Davy and thank you. How shall I write it then ?

    1. Let`s have a man to man talk.

    or
    2. Let`s have a talk man to man

    Sould I use this phrase attributively as in the first example? The first sentence sounds correctto me.

    Teia


    ps. I have a new username , teia, instead of "sheena55ro"
    Now I am a newbie again

    Thank you again

    Both are used equally.
