  • Casual, polite greeting: It’s been a while!

This casual polite greeting is used to say hello to a person you haven’t seen for a long amount of time.  If it’s a good friend or family member, this greeting is often accompanied by a hug.  Similar greetings include “Long time no see!” and “I haven’t seen you in forever!”  Typically, this greeting is followed by an inquiry into how the individual has been such as “How are you?” or “What have you been doing?”
