It means, "Way to go!"
also, YES! that was so cool!

In the 70's it was called "slap me some skin, or give me five."
The years have flown by and society adapts to new changes influenced by television, music, actors...etc
When the younger generation adapts to the new flow on the street sort of speak it's captured and repeated like a monkey see monkey do type of thing. Once it has been accepted it becomes part of the new slay on the streets, but it will die out like all others have and a new slay shall ring that might come form an actor or singer that reveals their saying to the public.

It means he wants to give you a high five. Men, we are simple creatures, we generally say what we mean, without hidden meanings, just because women are emotionally retarded doesn't mean we are as well. Examples. What men mean.

I love you = Let's have sex now! Let's talk = I'll impress you by showing you I am a deep guy then maybe sex? Will you marry me? = I want to make it illegal for you to have sex with others What's wrong? = What stupid self inflicted psychological trauma is it now? I don't think that blouse and that skirt go well together = I'm gay See very simple. Now women. Yes = No No = Yes Maybe = No I'm sorry = You'll be sorry We need = I want It's your decision = The correct decision should be obvious by now Do what you want = You'll pay for this later We need to talk = I need to complain Sure go ahead = I don't want you to I'm not upset = Of course I'm upset, you moron!

Give me five means,you hold your hand out and someone slaps your hand.It basically means "Oh yeah!"
high five is when you hold your hand in the air,requiring the other person to almost jump up to slap their palm.It means"Hell yeah!!!"

It's when people lift their hands up in the air and slap them (you and another person).
It's a way of saying 'excellent', or 'well done', 'or we did it'.
People often do it when they've just done something good or won something.
