Student or Learner
I'm trying to figure out the meaning of "fall back" in this contex.
We realized what our strengths and weaknesses are and in which areas we can depend on each other. I know now which areas to fall back as far as he is concerned, and he found some areas he could fall back a little bit, as far as I'm concerned.
Does it mean "...I know now in which areas I can depend on him.." or "...in which areas I can't depend on him"?
Thanks a lot!
To retreat. If they have different strengths, then when working together the one knows when to "fall back" and let the other take the lead.
