1 Answer 1


"Hit me up" here is slang for "call me." The whole line says "because you have my phone number, you can and should call me on the phone."

  • so then for example with my girlfriend could I say her "hey dearling hit me up I miss you a lot"? note: she is from california

  • You can say many things to a girlfriend, even one from California, but I suggest that you avoid slang. It is way too easy to use slang in a way that has an inadvertent meaning or for it to be misunderstood by the listener. I'd stick with "dearling" though; few women that I have known well would not be charmed by that term, provided that it comes from an appropriate person. Dec 16, 2018 at 17:42
