    at the door / in the doorway

    What's the difference in meaning between at the door and in the doorway?
    I need native speakers' help.

    Re: at the door / in the doorway

    You are not necessarily in the doorway if you are at the door. If you are standing at the door, you are normally standing a short distance away from it.
