What's the difference

I'm looking forward to meeting you
I look forward to meeting you
I'll forward to meeting you


It was good to meet you
It was good meeting you

[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. :cross:
=> 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.
