    Question 'god to hear'

    Hello there
    I read a post here asking about the use of 'good to hear from you'.
    The reply was that using 'nice to hear from you' is better than 'good to hear from you'
    I've always used 'Good to hear from you' Is that wrong?and if so what are the uses of 'good to hear from you'
    Thank you

    Both are correct. However, I would say that 'nice to hear from you' is warmer, more friendly. Good to hear from you is more business like.

    Question Re: 'god to hear'

    Hiya,

    I am confused with the two posts.


    If I say to a friend 'good to hear from you' after not contacting me for a while would that imply that I am upset?



    If I said good to hear from you to a friend.Would that seem rude?


    Thank you

    No, saying 'good to hear from you' to a friend does not imply you are upset, nor would it be rude. It's just a very subtle difference, a bit like the difference between 'I like you' and 'I really like you'.
