Verb. Performing any act that results in an improvement in one's present situation or possibly in future situations. The improvement is not necessarily exclusive to the individual "making moves" as it may also improve the situation of other party members. The term often refers specifically to making any sort of progress sexually with a person or persons of romantic interest. This phrase, while commonly believed to have been coined by Tag Body Spray -- as represented by Rob Dyrdek, Carmello Anthony and Ludacris -- was actually originated by a University of Florida student by the name of Joshua Poteat (circa 2006).
