I asked my friend to refer me to one of his friends. He replied "I referred you. He Seconds Me". Can someone tell me what is the meaning of "He Seconds Me" here?

This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:
"He seconds me" means either "He has formally put another referral in as well," or "He agrees with me."
Generally second as a verb is used in committees and other fora with set procedures: a motion which is to be voted on must be proposed [put forward] by its primary supporter and then seconded [openly supported] by someone else.
There are also seconds in boxing, who second (support) each fighter.
