Hello, The following is about "I look forward to hearing from you." and "I'm looking forward to hearing from you." and its differences. How would you opine on that?
look forward to. vb. (+: preposition) to wait or hope for, esp with pleasure.
'I am looking forward' is less formal. You would rarely say to a friend on the phone 'I look forward to visiting you next week.'.
Ryan smith: Correct: I'm looking forward to meeting you. The verb is--> 'to look forward to' = 'to anticipate' (transitive = requires a direct object).
I'm looking forward to seeing Julie.

Look forward to definition, to turn one's eyes toward something or in some direction in order to see: He looked toward the western horizon and saw the returning planes.
2)I'm looking forward to seeing you. Thanks in advance.
Obviously, “hear” is not a thing, so it wouldn’t make much sense to “look forward to hear from you”. The thing you are looking forward to is “hearing from you”
en If we were designed to die and go to heaven, would not more people look forward to it as much as a child looks forward to growing up or a youth looks forward to getting married?
