A Question for You...

When someone says to you  "I have your back" what do they mean?

Please answer to the best of your ability......I'm very interested in finding out what people mean when they say this.

Thanks in advance for taking the time to answer.

It means they will protect you. It means they are right behind you and will defend you. They've got you covered!

It means they'll stand up for you, or help you out in any situation. In the military, they say "I got your six". If you think about a watch, the 12 would be in front of you, the six behind you, so when a military person says "I got your six." It means "I've got your back, I'm hear to cover you."

I am really tired today. I know the difference between hear and here. I meant "here" of course! I'm going to bed early tonight! :-)

To me it means someone stands with you. Kind of the same as I may not agree with what you say, but I defend your right to say it.

I see it as sticking up for you in case somebody bad mouths you etc... "sticks a knife in your back" I won't let them.

As I understand it, Judy, it means, if someone is attacking a friend of yours or is saying gossipy things OR if your friend needs help of any kind...you might say..."I've got your back"--meaning, I'm behind you you can count on me, I will stick up for you, I am loyal to you and will be there for you in any way I can.
