Define Sure Meaning

The WORST response to a "Yes" or "No" question.

The response you give when you don't 100% want to say "Yes" but also don't want to say "No". "Sure" is the answer you use when on the fence about something, but is not an acceptable response to Y/N questions.

Phil: Do you want to go to the movies?

Sarah: Sure

Phil: (pause) Is that a "Yes" or "No"?

Sarah: Sure, I will go to the movies.

Phil: But I asked if you WANTED to go to the movies.

Sarah: And I said sure.

Phil: (leaves)

A answer to a “yes” or “no” question that shows a lack of interest. Used when you don’t care enough to say no but you don’t want to say yes. Really just implies that you don’t give a shit.

Girl: “Do I look okay?”
Boy: “sure”
Girl: “Ugh! I knew I looked bad!”
Boy: “I literally said you looked fine.”

Often used sarcisticly, it origianally means "I agree".

When said quickly, it stays true to the origianal meaning. When elongated, it is often an indiction of sarcasm.

Non-sarcastic: Sure!
