    Wink Is the following sentence wrong??

    Do you native speakers say:

    Maybe I will

    Like: Will you go with me?

    Well, Maybe I will.

    Or maybe I'll do that if I have time.

    Thanks

    "Maybe I will" is fine in reply to the question.

    Somebody said this is not right. But actually I use it a lot when talking with others. Hah

    I am not a native speaker, but meet lots.

    It is grammatically acceptable but it sounds more natural to say: "I might"

    For me, "maybe I will" is stronger than "I might", and that makes the action more likely.
