Q: How may I help you?
A: I'm looking for ~ I'm not sure ~
Hi, there is used with friends, and even with strangers you feel comfortable with. :D2. I also noticed in a film that when people meet each other they said somthing like 'Hi, there' or maybe 'Hi, they'. From the context it functions like 'Hi'. Am I right? If I am, when do people use it? Is it used in informal situation and to friends?
I look forward to hearing from you is rather formal. :wink:
