    Ride along with?

    Which is correct?

    She tells Dino to go along with her schemes.

    She tells Dino to ride along with her. (I mean the same thing as the first sentence. I want to know if this is correct also.)

    I'm pertaining to telling someone to act out as how you are behaving in a certain situation. For example, you saw your ex-boyfriend with her new girlfriend. You don't want to feel like a loser that's why you told your ex-boyfriend that your best friend whom you are with is your new boyfriend when in fact he is not. You just want your best friend to ride along with your act. How do you say it? Hope you could help me.

    Thanks!

    Re: Ride along with?

    Hello,

    ...'go along' is OK, 'ride along' isn't.

    Regards

    Re: Ride along with?

    so it shud be:

    Vira went along with Gabís pretension.

    She tells Dino to just go along with her act.

    He also thanked Vira for going along with his pretension.

    Are they correct?

    Thanks!

    Re: Ride along with?

    'Go along with' is fine; I prefer 'play along with'.

    I'd prefer 'play along with' in all three.

    Re: Ride along with?

    What's the other way to say "I won't put you at risk" using the word harm?

    Thanks!
