I wanted to know which phrase would be grammatically correct?

Should I use;

I was teasing you.


I was teasing with you.

  • tease you is correct; you could say I was teasing you or I was teasing. Why this is so has to do with transitivity/intransitivity. – User40475 Apr 27 at 9:03

    I teased the cat with a piece of string. I teased Mary with jokes about her dress. – Michael Harvey Apr 27 at 12:58

If "you" is the object of the teasing, then "I was teasing you".

The only time "I was teasing with you" could be used would be if you and I were teasing somebody else together as a team: "I was teasing Jane with you".
