    look foward to?

    Do you know any similar expressions to "look forward to"? I can't think of any.

    ex)I'm looking foward to seeing her.

    "I can't wait to see her."

    I'm eager to see her.
    I'm really excited about seeing her.
    I'm seeing her on Sunday. The anticipation is killing me!

    I can't help feeling that all the above replies are over-egging the pudding.

    'I'm looking forward to seeing her' just means 'Seeing her will be a pleasant experience for me'.

    Sure, the connotations might be slightly different. But keannu was after similar expressions, not a more thorough understanding of the original expression. 'Seeing her will be a pleasant experience for me' is not actually something that I'd call an expression, and I'd find it a bit strange if someone said it.

    Thanks for the nice idiom: 'over-egg the pudding'
    It's easy to remember.
