    What does "She is going for her." mean exactly?

    Hi there,

    When I was in a advising center, someone told me a advisor was going for another girl. Does it mean the adviser is going to provide service to another girl first?

    Thanks,

    It's impossible to say without having been there.

    There's not enough information there to be sure what was meant.

    Thanks.
    When you say "When I was in an advising center", do you mean that you were working there or that you were a customer who had gone there for advice? What exactly did "someone" say?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Yes. I was a customer waiting for the adviser and the secretory told me that the adviser would go for another girl. Sorry for the inexact information.

    That makes things a lot clearer. The girl was going away from the desk in order to find the other girl and bring her to the desk.

    Now that I have answered that, I am going (on to my patio) for a smoke. - In that case, I am merely going (on to the patio) in order to smoke a cigarette. I shall bring nothing back, except a few more cancer cells.
    Dammit! I've run out of cigarettes. I must go (to the shop) for a packet. - In that case, I will go to the shop, buy a packet of cigarettes and bring them home.

    Context is very important.
