    Re: What does this sentence mean?

    Where did you find this?

    It is the same as saying, "I haven't talked to you in ages." - it is so long since we have talked, it feels like an eternity, forever.

    However, I haven't seen this version before. Is this teenager-supercool talk?
    Sounds like something out of Grease! Haven't seen you in, like, forever, man. = becomes Haven't seen you in forever.

    I have heard teenagers using "I havn't talked to you since forever."
    As for the meaning, as Ronbee says, it means "in/for a long time."
