Warmth and enthusiasm are two valuable commodities we can infuse into our conversation.

I remember a friend of mine talking to a mutual friend of ours. He was inviting him over to his place and in his voice was a kind of warmth and enthusiasm I had not heard before. It was reserved for this particular close friend alone. It made me start to think about how we can infuse some warmth and enthusiasm in our conversations. Have a look through the expressions below and decide whether you would like to adopt any of them.


“Pleased to meet you.”

“It’s good to see you again.”

“It’s great to see you.”

“It’s been too long. How have you been?”

“I’ve been wanting to meet you.”

“A pleasant surprise to see you here.”

“I missed you.”

“Oh, good. I was hoping you could make it.”

“I’d like you to meet a really good friend of mine, Bob Prachett… Bob helped me a great deal when I first started my business. I really owe a lot to him.”

“I’m delighted to make your acquaintance.”

“I really appreciate you taking the time to join us.”

“I’m so glad you could make it.”

Parting Ways

“We really have to get together more often.”

“Hope to see you then.”

“Looking forward to seeing you again.”

“I’m glad to have met you.”

“Keep in contact. I’d like to hear how you are.”

“Keep in touch.”

“Hopefully, I’ll get to see you soon.”

“I had a great time today. Let’s meet again soon.”

“It was nice meeting you.”

“I’m so glad you could come.”

“It’s been great having you over.”

“I only wish I could see more of you.”

Expressing Thanks or Appreciation

“I don’t know how to thank you.”

“Thank you for what you’ve done for me.”

“It’s my good fortune to know you both.”

“You’ve done an amazing job.”

“Thanks for your help. It means a lot to me. I really appreciate it.”

“Thank you for helping us out the way you did. I’ll never forget it.”

Enthusiasm in Joining In

“Yeah, sure. Count me in. I’d love to go.”

“Sure. I’d like to see you again.”

“Hell yeah. Count me in.”

“Sounds great to me. Let’s do it.”

Encouraging Someone to Attend

“It would be great if you could make it.”

“You should come along man.”

“You’re more than welcome to join us.”

“Come and visit us sometime. It’s nice when friends pop-by.”

“We’d love to have you over for dinner.”

“We’d love to have you over again.”

“You should come more often.”

“Come along if you have time.”

“Of course you’re welcome. We enjoy your company.”

“Why not join us? You’ll have a great time.”

“If you have time over the next few weeks let’s meet up for a coffee. It would be good to catch up.”

Offering Help

“If I can be of any help let me know.”

“I’d be only too happy to give you a hand.”

“If you need a hand, give me a call. I’d be glad to help.”


“Let’s celebrate your graduation. I’ll take you out to that Indian restaurant you like. My treat.”

“Way to go, bud! How shall we celebrate it?”

“Congratulations on that promotion. You deserved it.”


“Get well soon.”

“I’m sorry to hear you’ve been sick. Let me know if I can be of any help.”

“I’d like to come and visit you. Would you like me to bring you something? Perhaps a magazine or a drink?

Accepting Thanks

“It’s my pleasure.”

“I’m glad to be of help.”

“You’re welcome. Let me know if I can be of further assistance.”

Expressing a Desire to Join

“I’d really like to hang out with you guys.”

“I’d love to join you on your next trip. Keep me in mind.”

Looking Forward

“I can’t wait to see you.”

“I’m so looking forward to seeing you again.”


“I’m sorry to see you go. Your friendship has meant a lot to me.”

“You’ve been a good friend. Thanks for everything.”

“I wish you all the best in your future endeavors.”

Are you in the habit of showing warmth and enthusiasm in your speech?

The language of warmth can distinguish us in the eyes of others. It has the power to open doors and make us welcome in their lives. It can cause others to see us as a pleasant person to be around and a desirable presence in their lives.

If you have any ideas, wisdom or questions on this subject I’d love to hear them. Can you think of any more expressions to add to this list?
