    saw or last saw

    Is it okay to say " It's been a long time since I saw you". or should I say " It's been a long time I last saw you". Which is okay? Is either one of them okay?

    EDIT: I didn't read them carefully enough the first time. Number 2 isn't natural English. You need 'since', LD.

    STRIKE THIS LINE {Sure it's okay to say either, LD.}

    OR

    It's been a long time since I've seen you.

    In my opinion, my sentence is:
    It's been a long time since the last time I saw you.
    How do think?

    How do you think? = What do you use to think? I think with my brain.

    What do you think [of my sentence]?
    Your sentence is fine, Chuhuytam.
