you mean further meaning ,right?
can you give examples? 3Q


I mean if "chasing someone" can mean the same as "courting someone", it must be rare in actual usage. But then, I do feel I am now a rather old fashioned guy in this fast moving world so I keep on second guessing myself these days.

I must have heard of "I will chase this up for you" or "I will chase her up" but all in circumstances where somebody was pressing/nagging somebody else to do something.

"chase" is  best to describe "追求某人"


It seems that "chase after" is accepted usage now.  As for "chase somebody" used in the sense of courting that somebody is still controversial, I think.
