I want to end a letter to a friend of mine. Shall I say : I'm looking forward to seeing you or I look forward to seeing you.
thanks in advance
I've been taught they mean the same thing. So you can use either (to me)
Just an opinion...
SK:I think it should be "I look forward to seeing you." I was taught that it's got to be either "I look forward to seeing you" or "I am looking forward to see you." But, to be honest, I don't think people in the US make this distinction. Anyone know if "I am looking forward to seeing you" is grammatically correct?
In spite of that, either can be used in either situation!
(My daughter has just suggested that the only way you could use "to see you" in a sentence like this would be if you literally meant "I am looking in a forward direction IN ORDER TO see you" - parallel to "I am leaning forward to see you." )
People are waiting to help.
