Hey, it seems ike things ain't clicking (kicking). What's the problem?
What's the meaning of "things ain't clicking (kicking). I suppose clicking and kicking have the same sense here, but anyway it isn't clear to me. Thank you all.

    It would be nice to have a little more context. What is going wrong? Is it that people aren't getting along, or that something isn't working?

    I doubt that kicking would work here, though it might. Why are you suggesting that alternative?

    Sorry, I thought that was enough. Here's the rest:
    I'm feeling down. Aurélie just stood me up again. It seems she's caught a bug.
    I hope this is ok now.

    Depends what the questioner is asking about

    ...things ain't clicking (the questioner is noting that you are not getting on well with Aurelie)
    ...things ain't kicking (the questioner is noting things are not going well for you generally)
