Learn English – How to tell someone I had a great time the last time I saw them


I went to lunch with a group of friends yesterday, and one of my friends brought two new people whom I did not know.

Today I bump into one of the new ones, and I wanted to be polite and tell the person that I had a great time at lunch.

I have read several places on the internet, that saying "Thank you for yesterday" has a sexual undertone to it.

Is that true? Or how else would you say it?

Okay, reading a sexual undertone into an innocuous statement like Thank you for yesterday seems kind of weird—unless it's said with a leer and/or wink to someone with whom you had sex yesterday. Other than that, Thank you for yesterday could mean anything, and certainly doesn't have a subtext—or even a text-level text—that's sexual in and of itself. Where did you read this?

To answer your question, you could say Thank you for lunch yesterday to avoid all confusion. Of course, if lunch is used as a euphemism for sex by someone, then you're on your own!
