    Re: meaning

    Welcome to the forum, Vijay.

    I want to know the meaning of [no comma] "Life is always trying to escape me".
    In what context did you read this sentence?

    * * *

    Please note that a better title would have been Life is always trying to escape me
    .

    Extract from the Posting Guidelines:

    'Thread titles should include all or part of the word/phrase being discussed.'

    Re: meaning

    This is in a story called, This is for real, by James Hadley Chase. An American man says this to a woman. When he freely approaches her,she says, "You mustn't be too free with me. I don't like men who take me for granted. "
    The American replies, "I never take anything for granted. I live under pressure. I feel life is always trying to escape me. "


    Response please
