    ever since vs since then

    Dear teachers

    Do these sentences read well?

    She's been in there ever since.
    She's been in there since then.


    Do they have the same meaning?

    Thank you

    Do they have the same meaning? Yes. They're OK if some action by her had been previously mentioned/established.

    Thank you

    They read well and have the same meaning in the right context.
