I was partying last weekend with a couple of friends and some of their acquaintances. There was a girl wearing a pretty sexy and not that long dress who said she was in Kumpelmodus.

What does that mean?

    Well, what do you guess it meant? (And more interestingly, what happened next?) – Hulk Jun 22 '14 at 17:30

    We can deconstruct the word at face value, but that's something you can do just as well yourself. Kumpelmodus = pal mode. What that actually meant in context is impossible to tell because little, if any, context has been supplied. We can only guess she friendzoned you (or everyone). – RegDwight Jun 22 '14 at 17:36

    "Ich bin im Kumpelmodus" heißt, "Ich such einen Lover, aber Du scheidest aus" (Im Zusammenhang mit dem Dress). – user unknown Jun 24 '14 at 19:37
  • pretty direct way of friendzoning someone – Gigala Jun 25 '14 at 11:09

She was telling you beforehand that she was not looking for a hookup. An advance "let's just be friends", if you will. Kumpel is a German expression for buddy, mate, pal.

She was telling you that she was not there for flirting.

A Kumpel is a friend, a pal, a buddy.

Basically, you've been preemptively friendzoned, as this might be called in certain corners of the internet ;-)

  • Rather, she friendzoned herself, didn't she? – Raphael Jun 23 '14 at 8:35

She was basically there to hang out and not looking for a hookup or anything romantic.

"Kumpel" = pal, buddy and "modus" = mode, so literally translated she said "I'm in pal/friend mode tonight.
