    Maybe I'll catch you next time?

    was teasing a friend over text about his new beard. I mentioned I had seen him in his subdivision which is how I knew about his new beard. he texted back " why didn;t you say hello?" I told him he was with his family and didn't want to interrupt. Next time I saw him I would say hello. he responded, " maybe i'll catch you next time."

    what does Maybe i'll catch you next time mean?

    thanks!

    Re: Maybe I'll catch you next time?

    It means that maybe next time the two of you can stop and have a chat. '(I'll) Catch you later' is another, similar idiom.

    Are you asking about the dictionary listing? If so, yes it does.

    What does "Maybe I'll catch you next time" mean?

    Thanks!
    See my corrections above. You must start every new sentence with a capital letter and always capitalise the word "I". Don't put a space after opening quotation marks.
    I don't know what "in his subdivision" means.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    'Subdivision" is used to refer to a portion of a suburb.
