Top 5 Cool Ways To Say Goodbye

***there is a quiz at the end of this article***

What are some ways to say goodbye in English?

“It’s not you, it is me.”

We all are very much familiar with this sentence, aren’t we? I’d take that awkward gasp for a yes. With all due respect, the above-mentioned statement is the most overused goodbye sentence ever in the history of bidding farewells.

Not all goodbyes have to end this way, right? I mean there are several places in our daily lives where we need to say bye and take leave for a brief moment of time and also times where we need to end official conversations. You don’t need to sound like a Bore when you have to end talks.

So here are a few ways in which you could conversations:

–       FORMAL

–       INFORMAL

–       SLANGS

So, let’s talk about some cool ways to say goodbye in English and stop repeating the same expressions over and over. It’s very important to try new expressions and phrases every day to sound more native and smart in our daily conversations:

Formal scenarios:

Have a good day/weekend/evening/holiday etc is usually used in work situations where you aren’t close to the person and want to end the conversation on formal terms without having sounded rude at the same time.

Take care. This term brings out positive emotions that you carry for the person. Don’t use it on somebody you publicly don’t like though. It comes off rude.

Informal setups:

For all the love you would want to shower on your friends and close ones, here are a few tips:

Ciao/see you later/ see you!

The shorter you make this, the more informal it sounds.


You say this when you are saying bye to a person for a really short time and also to your absolutely closest friends as they don’t require much of a formality in these gestures.

Was nice to meet you

This is usually used when you don’t expect to see this acquaintance anytime soon again. It may sound rude, but trust me it isn’t.


Here are a bunch of random slangs that you could use casually to sound cool. *wink.

Don’t use these in your workplace, it would be inappropriate but try them out and find out which works best with your circle of friends.

–       Peace out/ peace

–       Take it easy

This essentially means relax. Similar to take care, but a lot more informal as you can see. It is used amongst friends and not to elders.

–       Catch you later

This brings us to the point where you are no longer a Bore with saying goodbyes. You are a genius. “It’s not me, it is you.”

A summarized list of cool ways to say goodbye in English:

  • Bye!
