    Smile I won over/against you

    You won over/against me.
    I lost to you.



    We use the above two in our daily conversation in our culture, and they refer to about the same thing for us. But I wonder if they are also true of you native speakers.

    Thanks, Soup.
    Long time no see! How is it going?
    By the way, does it sound right to say "I lost to you?" If yes, does it mean "You beat me?"
