What should I reply with when someone ends conversation with "take care" in online chats or in-person?
Seeing that "take care" is pretty much a standard phrase people use when ending a conversation, there are a host of ways you could reply:
- See ya!
- Hasta manana!
That's half a dozen; we could probably come up with half a dozen more with very little effort.
There's really no best answer to this question. Perhaps you could pick two or three responses that you feel comfortable with, and that you think reflect your personality, and tuck them away in your brain to be used when the time comes.
By the way, I've only known one person in my life that used Toodles! in this context consistently. But that made the phrase remarkably quaint and memorable. I suppose your choice depends on whether your want something that sounds quite standard, or something quirky and unique.
I would just say
And you! Bye.
Although I would omit the "And you!" if they say "Bye." after "Take care."
I hope this helps!
