I feel like I hear it a lot too from Chinese people. Makes me wonder if its been used to represent some sentiment that doesn't translate well into English since "I miss you" isn't really all that common a thing to say under normal circumstances.

Easy to learn English phrase. Prety common anywhere if you havn't seen someone for a while.

sophie: i'm always ready, willing and able but you need a more attractive avatar photo. but either way PM me so we could make arrangements Love

i get it a lot from former students, i dont get it i'm an awful teacher and a worse human being, i understand my close friends. there are very few if any "real people" in that city that is fun to hang out with and talk to. and it's not just "i miss you" a teenager once told me he loved me after a 4 week summer session, i wanted to run out of the class

Actually there is a sad story to my avatar photo seriously (i joke a lot but now i am serious) it cant be seen clearly but it is a dog lieing down in front of a casket of a dead marine (the dogs best friend). the marine died in either afghanastan or iraq i forget. but the dog walked slowly up to the casket laid down made a sad moan. it stayed there for the entire service. i hate animals but in my life i must admit dogs are the greatest and people are not worthy of the loyalty they show us, dogs will give their life to save their owner. (they make the decision it is not a dumb animal thing)

back to be the jerk that i am: sophie i will PM you some avatar photos i would like to see you use

and that is one reason i hate all politicians. they should be rounded up and ............... (Bush , Obama, the congress and senate)

there is no need to say sorry for your joke, nothing wrong. i just wanted to explain it because it cant be seen clearly. sophiemars is a good name but the photo needs to be of a beautiful woman. i personally prefer plain beauty over the model, actress type. Tongue

Why would anone hate a dog or cat ? They just animals similar to us. In many ways better than most people I meet. At least they are honest, can be loyal.

they are filthy they dont clean up after themselves they require too much attention. same reasons why i hate people also.

but i respect the hell out of dogs though. when i was in hohhot there where a pack of small dogs that roamed the campus one or a few would sleep outside our building. one morning i hear an constant barking. i looked out the window and saw this huge wolf looking dog roaming around. and one of the little dogs was barking his little heart out to sound the alarm even when the big dog finally took exception to the barking. luckily for the little dog the shop owner got outside just in time to scare the big dog off

only time i gave one of those filthy strays a treat

I can't reply to your comment for some reason, so I need to write it here, my English is way to good to possibly be a local... That and I speak/write way more logically than possible from a local.

It's an affectionate greetings, there is no specific 'deal' with it. It just means that he/she had not seen you in a while and actually was looking forward to meet you again, not always means that he/she is into you.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
