ON THE FENCE – Definition | Learn American English Idioms and Slang with MUSIC!

on-the-fence-idiom-definitionTO BE ON THE FENCE ABOUT SOMETHING:

  • When you don’t know how you feel about something yet
  • When you cannot yet decide one way or the other
  • Waiting to choose which way to go


  • “I’m ON THE FENCE ABOUT THIS SHIRT. Does it make me look fat?”
  • “Are you coming with us to the bar tonight?” —> “I don’t know, I’m still ON THE FENCE.”
  • “I’m still ON THE FENCE about whether to go to University or get a job.”


Here’s a great example:

“I can’t decide on this way or the other – so I live my life SITTING ON THE FENCE.”
