Have you ever wanted to say something to someone but didn’t know exactly what? Use ‘talk to you soon’ as a way to tell someone they are important to you, that you look forward to connecting with them soon and that you hope things will be better soon. While this phrase can be confusing, it can also mean many different things and help add meaning to your communication efforts with others. Let’s look at some of the meanings of this phrase and how it might best be used in your next conversation with someone who needs an encouraging word or just simply wants to chat.

Hey, did you get my text?

I’ll get right back to you on that. Oh, and don’t forget to let me know if you get a copy-paste-emails team up and running! Talk to you soon! (Hey, did you get my text?) Copy-Paste-Emails Team. Talk to you soon. The phrase talk to you soon is often used in emails or chats as an indication of intent. As one might expect from the use of soon, this phrase is most commonly used when the speaker wishes to speak with the other person again, but has not yet found an opportunity for conversation. Talk to you soon can also be used as a salutation for texts or emails before closing off communication; its function in these instances could be compared with more formal phrases like best regards, or all the best.

Did you see my message?

I wanted to reach out and see if you saw my message. I’m not sure if it went through or not, but I am going on this big trip and wanted to catch up with you before I left. Let me know what you think about the copy-paste emails team idea and let’s get in touch soon. Talk soon! I’ll be back from Asia at some point next week. In the meantime, please feel free to email me or call my cell phone if there is anything that comes up between now and then. It would be great to hear your thoughts on the update by then too. It’s been such a pleasure working together these past few weeks; we have a lot of great ideas in the pipeline that we can start hashing out after I return. As always, thank you so much for your hard work!

I miss you! 🙂

It’s been a while since we last spoke. I hope you’re doing well and getting some time for yourself. I’m really looking forward to catching up with you soon! If it’s too soon for a call, maybe we can schedule a coffee date? That would be perfect. Talk to you soon! Copy-Paste-Emails Team

Just wanted to check in.

I hope all is well. I just wanted to see if there was anything new since the last time we talked, or if you needed any help with anything. If not, that’s totally cool! I’ll be around and would love to catch up with you soon. I’ve been looking forward to hearing from you for a while now. Let me know what you’re up to these days and if there’s anything on your mind, whether it’s big or small. Talk to you soon 🙂

Hope all is well with you.

Just as there are many different ways to say hello, there are also many different ways to say goodbye. The best way, though, is the one that is most appropriate for the moment and the relationship. For example, if you’re speaking with a close friend or family member and have just asked them how they’re doing, talk to you soon can be interpreted as an invitation for further contact. If you don’t want any more communication with someone after an argument or unpleasant interaction, talk to you soon might be your way of saying goodbye without any intention of reconnecting in the future.

Thanks for the advice. I really appreciate it.

I really appreciate your advice. I’ll take it into consideration and see what I can do about it. This is one of those things that’s been on my mind for a long time, but I never had anyone to talk about it with until now. It’s good just knowing there are other people out there who are also struggling with this issue. Thank you so much!
