    hit on and come on to

    1) I'm not hitting on you/I'm not coming on to you.
    2) I can't bear that guy. He's always hitting on me/He's always coming on to me.

    Do these two verbs mean the same in this context ( that is, to approach someone because we have a sexual or romantic interest)? Are they used at the same way with this meaning?

    Thank you very much.

    Re: hit on and come on to

    Yes, they are both the same.
    I'm not a teacher yet, but I am studying a Bachelor of Education with an English Literature major at Charles Sturt University, in NSW, Australia.
