To loose on someone Hi native English speakers italki friends. I was wondering what does "sounds like you are loosing on me" mean. Just heard this expression and although I have already done some googling on that I feel that I haven't fully understood what does that mean yet.

Are you sure it wasn't "it sounds like you are losing me"?  If that's the case, then the person who said that was most likely telling a story or explaining something to someone, but then they realized the other person wasn't not understanding them.  

For example, if I'm talking to you in English and you have a confused look on your face and I can tell you aren't understanding what I'm saying anymore, I can say "it look like I'm losing you."  :)

How sure are you that it was the word ¨loosing?¨  I do not think that is a word.  We have ¨loose¨ or ¨losing¨ and I have even heard ¨loosening,¨ but never loosing.

She might have said ¨sounds like you are losing me.¨ If so it would depend on context.  Sometimes people say ¨you are losing me¨ when you are talking and they are having difficulty following (understanding) what you are saying.  In a relationship that is going bad, someone could potentially say ¨seems like you are losing me.¨

I think Kristal is 'bang on' with 'you're loosing me'.

Thanks everyone! I believe I had understood the meaning, and surely it was a typo, it was 'losing on me'. and yeah, given the context I believe Susan and Kristal have nailed it. :)
