    singular or plural

    Hi,
    Would you please tell me whether we can use the word "vibes" in a singular form or not. In this sentence: "I got on a vibe with her and asked her out."
    Thanks in advance.

    Re: singular or plural

    It means nothing to me. "Vibes" is a very old-fashioned colloquial abbreviation of "vibrations". I have not come across the phrase "I got on a xxxx with her..." except in the context of "I got on a motorbike/bus with her."

    Of course it may be an expression that is used in a tiny area but, in that case, I would avoid using it generally.

    Hi, Samira, and welcome to the board.

    Yes, it's fine to use vibe in the singular.

    However, your sentence should read 'I got a vibe from her and asked her out.'

    In other words, she sent out a signal that she liked me.
