    Question If it is so then?

    Yeah, you are right Robert, it was "ain't". But i want to know that if "ain't" is the contraction of " are not", becouse in the "OXFORD ADVANCE LEARNER'S DICTIONARY" it is " aren't".
    I also need to know that if "shop" is verb, why it is usually used without the prepostion "to" when it comes after "go". For instance, I will go shopping.
    Don't u think it is grammatically incorrect? Rather it should be" i will go to shop"
    There are a few sentences those i am a bit nervouse about using .So please correct them.
    It's a long since i met her.
    I didn't meet her a long.
    I did not meet her for a long time.
    I never saw such a wonderfull friend like you.
    I never have such a wonderful friend like u ever before.
    you are the truest friend of mine.
    Thanks.

    AIN'T is an incorrect contraction of am not, are not, is not, have not and has not.

    A GERUND is a VERB working as a NOUN. GERUNDs usually end with ...ING.

    To look is a verb. It is the Infinitive form of the verb, To Look.

    The verb To Look also has a gerund form, looking. Looking is a noun. You can not touch it, taste it or see it, but it is a 'thing,' a noun.

    Subject - Verb - Noun object
    I like dogs.
    I like food.
    I like looking.
    I like looking at girls.

    So,
    I like shopping is correct... Subject I, verb like, object/gerund/noun shopping.

    Your sentence is also correct.

    I will go to shop. I will go to look. I will go to eat.

    It's a long since i met her.
    It's been a long since since I met her.

    I didn't meet her a long.
    I didn't meet her a long time ago (I met her yesterday) OR
    I didn't meet her for long (She and I only spoke two minutes.)

    I never saw such a wonderfull friend like you.
    I never saw (or HAD) such a wonderful friend like you.

    I never have such a wonderful friend like u ever before.
    I have never had such a wonderful firend like you ever before.

    you are the truest friend of mine.
    You are my best friend
