    Re: foward to

    [1] I'm looking forward to meeting you.
    => Present continuous: the speaker is thinking of this now.

    [2] I look forward to meeting you.
    => Present simple: the speaker is stating a fact.

    [3] I'll forward to meeting you.
    => forward isn't a verb.


    If there is a difference in meaning here, native speakers would be the last to know:

    [4] It was good to meet you.
    [5] It was good meeting you.
