    Question Each other vs one another

    Hello there!

    First time poster here. I was wondering whether the construction of this sentence is correct:

    I wanted to say this to someone I haven't seen/ heard of for a long time:

    'Long time no see! I reckon we wouldn't have recognized each other if we ran into one another in the street'

    Is the sentence correct?/ Is there a better way to convey the same message?

    Many Thanks


    PS: I always seem to add 'there' when I say Hello, is this incorrect and does saying 'Hello There' have a different meaning? Thank you!

    Re: Each other vs one another

    Welcome to the board, Belladonnaa.

    'Long time no see! I reckon we wouldn't have recognized each other if we ran into one another in the street'.
    This sentence is correct..

    'Hello, there' is commonly heard. When people say it to me, I usually assume that they can't remember my name.

    Therefore I never use it myself. If I can't recall someone's name quickly enough I just say 'Hello''.
