Although I've read this thread and its answer, I'm still a bit confused about it. I would also give the same answer as engee30, since I was taught about the structure It has been (a period of time) since S + last + V-ed. But I'm wondering if the first two of the three options originally given by spaceniuzai are acceptable/correct, too (I suppose the third is incorrect).I would like to say I haven't seen someone for a while. Which one of the followings is most appropriate? Thanks a lot.
1. It has been a while since our last meet.
2. It has been a while that we haven't seen each other.
3. It has been a while since we've seen other.
Really sorry for creating this thread just to ask about the issue already asked and answered, but I just want to know if there are alternatives to express the same idea in this case. Thank you all in advance!

Really sorry for the unintentional mistake. Actually "It has been (a period of time) since S + last + V-ed" was what I was taught, as far as I remember. I will edit my post. Thank you for the prompt!
