I looked about to look for you.
I think the sentence means, "I looked around to look for you".
Am I right?
Please help me.
I looked about to look for you.Translation:
I looked for you.People don't always say exactly what they mean. (Context is always important.)
Sentences don't happen all by themselves. They occur in context. Somebody says something. Somebody says something else. The first person (or another person) says something else. The meaning of every sentence comes from the context in which it appears.
