We don't get .../help
Message from findingsound posted on 28-08-2015 at 10:38:22 (D | E | F)
Hi,
I would like to know if it's ok to say "we don't get each other"?
I know I can write "we don't understand each other" but it's for a song so I need a shorter verb.
Thank you for your help!

Hello,
I think it's ok, in a familiar style. You don't get me: you don't understand what I mean/feel...
Cheers

"We don't get each other" is a wrong sentence. You cannot use the word “get” in this way to replace the word “understand”. The word “get” can be used to express “understand” but in a different context. For example-
You get me? (You understand what I am saying?)
I get you. (I understand what you are saying).
You have to use the word understand in a broader sense so you can use it in the way what you have said “we don’t understand each other”. But you want to use it for a song and you need it short, in that case my suggestion is to use a phrasal verb “get along" means have smooth relations”. You can say “we two just don’t get along”.

Hi! I think there is no problem with the sentence "we don't get each other"

Just have a look at: "Don't think: expressing uncertainty" to correct your sentence.
Example:
- I think it won't rain tomorrow (wrong).
- I don't think it'll rain tomorrow (Right).

Well, I beg to differ, rkjs58.
We don't get along: we don't have a good relationship. We don't agree too well. We're not in good terms.
We don't get each other: I don't understand what you're saying, and you don't understand what I'm saying. But we may be in good terms all the same, and willing to understand each other. We have a misunderstanding, which we may well end up clearing. Do we get each other? Cheers.
