I heard Betty wants to go out with you. Have you ever thought of her in that respect?
What's the guy's meaning? Is the meaning 'Have you ever thought about it?'
ok,I've know the guy's meaning and could you give me another sentence use'in the respect' so that I can understand the phrase better? Thank U.
"In that respect" means "in that way".
It's one way of expressing a point of view.
Frank: "I saw the reports, and I'm glad that profits are up."
Nancy: "Profits are up, true, but it took a lot of overtime pay to increase our productivity. The increased profits go right back into payroll."
Frank: "Now that you mention it, I guess you're right. I hadn't looked at it in that respect."
