    Default any time vs. anytime

    Hello, teachers!
    Do these have the same meaning in each sentence?

    1. You could have met her [any time, anytime] you liked.
    2. Jake is going to be here [any minute, any time, soon].
    3. I don't think we can keep it under covers [any longer, much longer].

    Thank you very much.
    Peace!

    All OK again, Jandi. 'Any minute' is a little sooner than the others, but everything else is reasonably synonymous.
