How to use "Wink at" in context?

To wink at someone is to signal that you understand and agree with something that has been said, without actually saying anything. It is a way to communicate that you are not offended or angry, and that you are willing to dismiss or move on from the conversation. There is a subtle difference between a wink and a nudge. The former is a small movement of the eyes while the latter is a more significant gesture, usually with the hand.
