From an email I just received:
* Stay tuned, please...
One I've been using lately:
* As usual,
Prolly only useful with german speakers, but I use the first one now and then.
You could use the german expression "Gruss" in an english version. Because the german "Gruss" sounds very much like the english "Bruce", I suggest:
* Sliante (Scots Gaelic)
* Slan (Irish Gaelic)
They both mean goodbye
* Peace & Love,
* Peace, Love & Happiness,
"Catch ya later" is a good one.
I just want to say that this is the most useful page on the 'net for me right now, and I'm thrilled it's here. Thank you so much for making this!
Now, should I add something before I leave? Yeah, I suppose that would only be fair.
* Hope all is well,
Hey guys, thanks for all your help, i was jus lukin for good salutations when i came across this on Google. Anyway, no-one's said:
* ASTALAVISTA BABY
* Love, Hugs, and Sloppy Kisses
* Keep your stick on the ice.
In hockey it is the first thing your taught to do while playing the game.
Red green (Darren McEwen) adoped the phrase and made it his own salutation in 'the red green show'.
Its probably not a very good salutation if you have to explain it, but for people know the meaning/reasoning its great.
Steve smith, not darren mcewen. I was mistaken.
Red Green! That rules! And yes, Steve Smith plays Red Green.
I think anyone who's even heard of hockey would understand "keep your stick on the ice". I'm going to start using that.
* Always, forever, plus a day!
* Wuv you...kissy, kissy (mmmm….and some touchy, touchy)
* Hugs and Kisses and sexy wishes
* Lovingly and Lustily Yours,
* Back At Ya With The Hugs
* See you in the inbox, kiddo
* And now I’m tired, G’nite!
* ASTALAVISTA BABY.....
* Be happy or sea feliz (in spanish)
* Smiles and laughter,
* Stay well
* Peace and long life
* Live long and prosper
* I'll be back
* Safe travelling
* Get me a mars bar while your out
* Drive safely
* Don't come back now, yer hear!
* Your not welcome here any more
* Later Vader!
* Cheers & Beers
* All the best
* Stay on the road 'cos its going somewhere nice
* Watch this space...
* Can I touch your butt?
* Do svedaniya ("until we meet" in Russian)
* Vsevo dobrovo ("all the best", also Russian)
* Y'all come back now, ya hear?
* Happiness is a choice,
* Lustfully yours
* Over & Out
* Take care, comb your hair
* Too bad, so sad,
* Be good
* All good, all the time
This is great! Thank You for this great list.

some people say
but what does it mean?
Wow. I am very suprised that no one used my personal favorites to ending emails: (at least i didn't see it)
* Thank You (More professional)
* Thanks (More Personal)
Oh, by the way... "Word to your mother" just might be the coolest way ever to end a letter.
* Word to your Mother,
* In loving service,
for your biker friend:
* keep the rubber side down,
for the Emma Goldman fan:
* love and anarchy,
for the friend who grew up in Sarajevo:
and the one who grew up in Quebec:
* Always in my thoughts,
* With purest love,
* One Love,
* Peace and Blessings,
* Impatiently awaiting your responce,
what does it mean if a letter ends with lxlx?
maybe "lxlx" means love and kisses?
I use this for evening e-mails:
* ...sleep in heavenly peace...
* Chow (ciao)
* Till next time
* Catcha later
* Buy for now
* kiss kiss bang bang
which has now become a movie. haven't seen it.
here's some in Portuguese (from Portugal, not Portuguese from Brazil), since there are already some in other world languages:
* bjocas (short for beijocas, kisses)
* fica bem (be well, in the lines of live long and prosper)
* adeus (goodbye)
* saudades (I´ll miss you or I miss you)
* até amanhã (until tomorrow, just used it because of the things the english writing world doesn't use such as é ã and nh which is the same sound as spanish ñ)
* It's been real
* it's been nice
* it's been really nice
this is a great site!
*peace, love, and vitamin c
*see you later, sweet potater
*plant you now, dig you later
and there's always
*ttfn (ta ta for now, for you Tigger fans)
I like a variation of toodles:
Or maybe that's:
how about these
* yours till the amusment parks
* yours till the water falls
* yours till the toliet bowls
* yours till the coco puffs
Coco puffs! LOL! I like these! Clever!
* peace and progress,
* over and out,
* until we meet again,
* yours until the crows fly and the flies crow,
* you are the weakest link,
(German for Mit freundlichen Grussen/Grusse)
George Washinton to his favorite subordinates:
* Your obedient servant,
* Forever and a day,
* Forever and a day...or two,
Sarah and I used to say that.
As a child of the 70's, I always liked to say:
* Peace, love and Bobby Sherman!
I close me letters with:
* Big hug and an ass squeeze
* All the best for the rest
* Love always
* Keep smiling
* That's me...(your name)
* God bless u best for the rest
This is the best!!!! I now have a whole list of fun ones to use. Keep it up!
* It's now or never,
* Greetings and salvations.
* Peace, Love and Rock 'n Roll
I'm sending a letter to a serviceman oversees and I loved:
* May the force be with you.
Appropriate, don't you think?
Haha...I always liked
*With kind affection,
*Keep the pimp hand strong,
* always true
* wilen out
* Out like a fat kid in dodgeball
Great site- It really helped in class when the teacher wanted us to have an original letter closing.
Here's one of mine:
* keep on rockin' in the free world!
The absolute best I ever heard sad to say was from a movie, Kuffs (Christian Slater).
* Hugs and kisses on all your pink parts!!
Gee, that's Spanish, not Spanich!
* Un Beso!
* take care
* keep on keepin on
This was always said at the closing of her show. Sally Starr was a regular 70's icon in Philly--til she drank too much!
* Love, Luck, and Lollipops!
* yours til banana splits
* yours til the kitchen sinks
* yours til niagra fall
* yours til butter flies
a few of my personal favourites.
This was a great site. I needed to have a closing to an email and I needed it to sound personal. Thanks for creating this and since I have benefitted from this site, I feel obliged to impart yet another.
* Grace and peace,
To whom this may concern,
I would like to thank you for this list. I was running out of ideas.
* Till the world caves in,
* Breast Wishes, Sal & Manila
think about it, you'll get it eventually
this list is comedy. not sure i found the appropriate closing i needed, but great just the same.
* In peace,
* Fa, or *Fa Soifua (both are samoan, meaning "bye" and something like "take care"- soifua is 'blessings')
* con queso,
* in solidarity,
* warm best,
I got this from my boyfriend's first e-mail and I knew right then that I wanted to meet him...
* Talk to me soon
* It's been real, it's been fun, but it ain't been real fun.
how does this sound:
* Many thank yous
How about when you are grateful?
* In Gratitude
Just thought of a few more...
* Especially yours,
* Made in Taiwan,
* Yours til turtle necks,
* Be kind, rewind,
I love the list that is being compiled here, it is awsome!
* Caught up in the rapture of your love
* THANKS FOR HAVING PITY ON ME LAST NIGHT.
* Peace, Love and brown rice!
* Fair Winds to Ye!
I like ending with:
Because it usually gets the other person to smile.
I was wondering if anyone knows of anything else other than "Yours, sincerely", "Yours, faithfully", anything "with regards" for formal letters. It doesn't have to be THAT formal, but reasonably polite.
I absolutely love this list! I used "live long and prosper" and it was perfect! Here's one that was used on me today...
* with trepidation,
* word to your grandma,
Love Love Love this list!
* Love, Hug, and a Kiss
* Always Love

Ha! that almost sounds like Whizzo from the Bozo Show. He would say:
* Doobie doobie doooo!
* oky doky smoky!
Sorry if there are some repeats!
* 10 10 till I see you again?
* Bye for now
* So long
* Keep smiling
* Keep on trucking
* Cheers Big Ears
* Keep well
* Kind regards
* Best regards
I heard a relative say this:
* "Hasta que los chismes nos separen."
Translates to "Until gossip do us part"
* buenos nachos!
* hasta la pasta!
* Erromenon se hoi theoi diaphulattoien.
Greek for: May the gods guard your well-being.
Excellent for ending a letter with to someone you are unfortunately having to cut out of your life for any number of reasons...
Only had to use it once fortunately.
I searched for letter endings in google and here I am. Great page!
Let me add something in italian (since I'm italian)
* tanti saluti e baci (many "ciaos" and kisses)
* balusta e tintaciati (its anagram, that I sometime use)

The ending I always use for business letters, courtesy of the late Douglas Adams
* "So long and thanks for all the fish"
but then my company is called Fawlty Flats Ltd
* Afterwhile Crocodile

Finally have something to add:
* yours 'til america drinks canada dry. . .
I noticed this in a terrific little biography of Benjamin Franklin, with which he concluded a letter to one of his many lady-friends:
I had rather conclude abruptly with what pleases me more than any compliment can please you, that I am allowed to subscribe myself:
* your affectionate friend,
Timot, I really like your historical reference. It makes me want to go back to historical letters and see what salutations they used.
A friend of mine uses great hockey-related ones . . .
* Love and cross-checks!
* Only you can prevent forest fires,
* Love and lentils
or variations such as:
* hugs and houmous

(from a veggie!)

* Adoringly yours,
* Love with all my body and soul combinded,
....Oh and the ever popular:
* Fuck you later,
The utterly disarming:

[first name signature]
How about the classic from Strong Bad on homestarrunner.com:
* Nevermind the Bullocks.
Haha, makes me laugh every time..!
* Tune in next week. Same Bat Time, Same Bat Channel
* Tune in next week
Here's a good one:
* Health & Happiness,
I've always liked this one but it's even better said when leaving a gathering:
Here's my flashback closings:
* Can you dig it?,
* Groovy times for you and yours,
* More rap later,
* All you need is love,
and for Smokers:
* Smoke 'em if you got 'em
oops. I forgot the first one I wanted to mention.
Link from Mod Squad.
* Yours til the lettuce peeks to see the salad dressing.
I must say that all the salutations left in the comments here have been so wonderful. Thank you! :-)
* Hugs, Health& Happyness,
(austrian dialect for "servus" (not in the latin meaning->slave!!!) it's a way to greet someone)
(austrian dialect for "habe die ehere" means something like "sincerely")
One i use quite often:
* Hugs & Hersheys,
these are great. how about:
* catch you on the next bounce
* it's deep how shallow you are
* Hasta la bye-bye
* Our feet are the same
* Makin' like Santa and leaving your presence!
I've also heard:
* Our feet are stained
Too, I've been known to say:
* Hasta la Bye Bye!
* Yours till the chocolate chips
* Yours till the butter flies
The first is my favorite (from Winnie-the-Pooh!)

What does it mean when a married friend of the opposite sex ends her e-mail:

* Ease on down the road of life...
This is a fine listing, and I better repay all the posters' efforts with a contribution of my own:
* CONFUSION TO OUR ENEMIES.
I've used this for years, but unfortunately can't remember the source. There's a good chance I picked it up from auto editorialist David E. Davis, but I couldn't verify that.
I read them all and they're great. I hope I don't repeat any. Oh, remember all those high school letters we once wrote?

For the skydivers out there.
You all are so contemporary- How about
This is one of my favorites:
Carry on bravely ...
Can we talk about the use of the word ‘Best’ as a closing line in current correspondence? It seems to be the latest trend. But it leaves me annoyed and not eager to try. What the hell does it mean? Best. Best WHAT? Best intentions, Best wishes, Best Buddy, Best Dressed or Best Bowel movement? It’s so utterly cool that it carries no warmth. It’s not about wishing the other person the best of anything but rather an embarrassing attempt by the writer to include themselves in some phantom ‘it’ crowd. It doesn’t even look smart on paper or email. In fact it looks incomplete and as if the writer could not think of anything more intelligent to write. My advice is to return to the old but trusted ‘Sincerely’ until something worthy of its replacement comes along. After all, you are either cool or you are trying to be cool.
I don't think this one is up here yet
I'm off like a prom dress ( :
* May the gods have mercy on your soul,
* Perpetually yours,
* Shit, I left the stove on,
* *Elevator music*
* My grandmother is on fire,
* ‘Til the fat lady sings, (?)
* Happy trails (?)
* I have to piss
* Like a withering rose
* May the gods smile down upon you,
* May fun characterize your evening,
* With crystal eyes and a heart of coal,
* I hope you choke,
* A killer with the perfect weapons
* Sucking you dry,
* A daemon with a smile of gold,
* This can only end in tragedy,
* With blood in my tears,
* Anonymously, (One of my favs)
* Just living and breathing and trying not to die again,
* Will you still hold me when you see what I have done,
* ‘Til your stars run out of time,
* You can’t see California without Marlon Brando’s eyes,
* This is my farewell to you,
* I think I might be sinking,
* This can only end in tragedy,
* The one and only,
* I'll keep you my dirty little secret,
* Your ass is mine,
* Note to self, I miss you terribly,
* Your shoes are untied,
* Remeber what you're staring at is me,
* I miss you more than I could know,
Until another turn of the stars
Here is another resource with further links for valedictions:

I have been using "Hugs and Hopes," as my salutation...
Here's one for your close friends LOL
"May the fleas of a thousand camels infest your crotch."
i used this salutation to try to show that my word was sincere:
With my word,
Smile, it's the second best thing your lips can do!
Once upon a time I used to sign all my letters "paper hearts and glitter glue"
Live free, die well
* This message will selfdistruct in 5 seconds! ***

Goodbye blue sky? or should it be see you when I see you?
My stepmother passed away last week and my father recieved a sympathy card and the salutation was....
"Principable Love, ".... Hello!! Does anyone out there know what the heck that means?
This site is amazing! I'm always looking for original closings for letters. Here's one I thlught was good for someone writing a love letter, but they don't want to end with "Love"
*Hugs, Hopes, and Countless Prayers
This is a beautiful thread. Let me contribute how I ended an apology:
* Humbly Yours
I Can't Quit You,

Yours in love

TTFN - Ta Ta for Now
(tigger says this on whinnie the pooh)
how about these:
My neighbor Hugh used to get out of his easy chair and exclaim,
"Horsesh*t and Hockey Pucks!"
Wonderful thread! The following are used most often as a toast, but could also serve as a valediction:
May the road rise to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine upon your face,
May you be in Heaven a half hour
Before the Devil knows you're dead!

This site is great, but didn't anyone watch Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure?!

I have one to...
I'd like more proffessional ones over all
I just started a new corporate job. and I'll be getting e-mails from some pvery important people. I want to keep my end greeting as proffessional as possible.
One of my favorite salutations is "In His Presence I Remain"
from Vincent Van Gogh's letters to Theo:

Further bulletins as events warrant,
Live Well, Laugh Often, Love Much,
Love and Other Indoor Sports,
It's not me, it's you,
abs love this....

*keep up the hokey pokey!
*luvers and covers
*RIGHT RUDDER!!! (only pilots would understand this one)
*a;lsdkjf;laskdj (always a good one when you don't know what to day)
Does anyone know what it's called when you use a semi-colon for the salutation and a comma for the closing? There are three other types of puncuations; mixed which is the colon and comma; closed which is comma and comma; open which is you use nothing. There is a fourth which is the semi-colon and comma. I need to know what that is called. Any help on this would be grateful!!!!!
done and dusted,
Well I have actually saved these letter endings in my browser. I am not a very communicative person and I always have problems with this. I am interested in official letter endings, they are more difficult to handle.
(editor's note: Gordon, your link is going to get deleted every time you leave it in the comments)
I always use
lovelovelove and a daisy flower,
Here's one I've used--an obscure reference to one of my favorite movies, "A Christmas Story". When Dad gathers up the remains of his "shattered major award" and says:
remain with best regards
c u l8ter (- alligator)
bb (bye buddy)
greez (my own...)
lg (lovely greetings)
Love (and other indoor sports)...
Till death do us part,
* Have a nice day
* Vänliga hälsningar (Swedish)
* You still here?
* Kiss, you know where
* Sun shine on you!
Hugs and smiles,
consider yourself hugged
I am not sure if these have been posted yet cause this list is five years long...

* right on
* quit the bulls**t (for angry emails)
* keepin it real
* when keepin it real goes wrong (from a dave chapelle skit)

Wish I could smell your smell right now
The heart knows no distance
You can do it
Don't give up
You are my heart
From now on...
That's the breaks
All the news that fits
Don't touch my tomatoes
Rise and Shine
Wash your hands
Do the dishes
Stay as you are
Every man for himself
Straight, no chaser

Mind your manners
Mix it up
Make your mark
Shake your booty
Pull it up to the bumper
Bring it on
Bring down the house
I puke for you
Words aren't enough
I've got your back
Catch me if you can
Love you and now I'm leavin'
Fair and square
I'll race you
Don't forget to breathe
Count to ten
For the record
now we're straight
Look the other way
You forgive me
The pleasure is all mine
Mind over matter
Till the end of the roll,
It's gonna be another brand new day,

* may the schwartz be with you
Does it have any significance when a Serbian girl that I met in Belgrade closes her emails to me with "love"? Is that how they teach one to close personal letters as opposed to business letters in Eastern Europe, or may I read the common meaning into it? Otherwise, the e-mails are very warm and friendly.
Love and kisses on all your pink spots!
*In my drunken stupor
*Go and make disciples
*Yours from the cross
*Shalom (love this one)
*In the hopes of shaking your tree

Some of my favs:
Seize the day

Scottish one, not necessarily to end a letter, but
*Lang may yer lum reek*
Literally - "long may your chimney smoke."
These endings are wonderful, lots of great ideas. What i am looking for now is creative beginnings for letters instead of the weary dear etc. Have any been posted?
Here are a few I thought of as I read through these cool endings -
Stay off the path
Proceed with caution
I stumbled onto this page by mistake. NO mistake, LOVE these!! Here is my latest (prolly a repeat)

Ciao for now,
That's all I know...
i want to thank everyone for sharing their letter closings. I have been holding a long distance love affair with my girlfriend for six months now. We email each other every night. And every night I come here to find a good closing for my emails. She probably thinks I am super creative because of you folks. Thanks again.
stay strange, don't be a stranger
From Ron Burgundy:
Finally found one to share after using so many from here already. This one is a bit long, but its fun.
What if the Hokey Pokey really was what its all about,
Great Idea, Great Site.....I am always looking for new, intriguing, fun closings.

This isn't original but it always got my funny bone.
May the splinters be with you as you slide down the bannister of life,
or from Sayonra:
*May you live in interesting times.
The question is if this is a blessing or a curse...
WOW! Love this list. Note - to all those who are apologizing for reposting duplicates… There’s a nifty thing u can do on your computer. Press "Ctrl + F" and then search for the one you want to post to check for duplicates. Technology is amazing, no?

I think "biz" may stand for "Bises" or "Bise" which in French means "Kisses" or "Kiss". It's often used in sms (mobile written messages) cos it's shorter. People tend to write phonetically -at least in French and Spanish - when writing sms because of space restrictions and "keyboard" unconvenience.

*Live long and prosper

No need to spoil the party Jay. We were havng such a lovely time. If you'd like to see salutations, perhaps you'll add a few and join our party.
Specially for Jay:-

Thanks for your help so far. there are so many, I haven't read them all, but my problem is a little different. I don't like the lady I have to write to, so I don't want to be 'sincere' or 'faithful' I want to question the bi*@!s ethics and get outta there - so how would you sign off?
To answer Alec L ON's question, ( if it's not TOO disdainful for you,), I might use:
Oops - sorry - to answer' Jen's question, I might use
(Hint - look up the word 'contumely' )
I like it! I had to reach for my dictionary - and she'll have to read hers too! lol Thanks, Shelley
I used to write this to my pals:
God bless u later,
This site is 'really' great. Don't Google much but this was worth it. Very inspiring. Thank you. Just getting a little long... here's one I have'nt read I like using. Salam (Arabic for greetings)
I'll end my comment with...
May it be roses for you all the way
Peace, good health, and happiness!

I hope I never receive any mail from Adruabba! Both are eqaully disturbing. It's probaly some male thing that they find these comments humorous.

Whenever I am stuck for a clever (albeit wholly inane) sign-off, I visit Max Cannon's site: http://www.redmeat.com/redmeat/meatlocker/index.html
and use his comic titles where I've used such pearls as:
Like a sandpaper massage,
Tedious tales of tomorrow,
Cherubs with chest hair,
Dirt carrots for dust bunnies,
Mouthful of molten muck,
Burning ring of fiber,
Bedeviled by bejeezus,
Touched by an anvil,
Impromptu saliva bath,
Less fun than a barrel full of infected biting monkeys,
Adorned with airborne corn,
Safely ensconsed in a gossamer caccoon of ennui,
That should get you started! Enjoy.

What have I done
I love this site been there added some but it would be nice to kind of have everything that has been submitted sort of categorized and alphabetized and perhaps culled. A lot of rude and stupid things have managed to slip in.
May all your wishes be kisses,
May all your kisses be true.
May you always find
What is best for you.
(thanks Shelley - love it!)
Hmmm - Lucky Lucy - organizing these valedictions is FINE idea - it would eliminate a lot of the duplications.
Does anyone know if there any sort of computer program that could alphabetize an enormous list?
Hey, I found an online alphabetize program
salaam (arabic for peace)
*Tacos and Nachos
*For rich and poverty
*Vampires and werewolves
Lotsa repeats of them thar valedick . . .valleydict . . .aw hell, them closin' wurds.
Here's some fresh-like 'uns culled from TV, film, music, my head, and the sides of trucks:
* Gotta scram - it's Fizzies time!
* I'm so glad we had this time together
* Hi ho, hi ho, it's off to work I go,
* Na na na na, hey hey hey, goodbye.
* Was it good for you too?
* Good night, Chet (David, Vienna, etc.)
* With warmest leotards,
* Enjoy life - eat out more often.
* Have a crap-tacular day
* Drive fast - it's how they make angels.
* Head cheese and urine cakes,
* Back to the meth lab,

**Does it have any significance when a Serbian girl that I met in Belgrade closes her emails to me with "love"?

(Derivation: "Alo" means presence and "ha" means breath. The Hawaiians use to greet one another nose to nose and would let out a small breath to grant another "the breath of life." This is further translated to respect another life source. It is the actual meaning of Aloha, although it is also used to simply say "hello" and "good-bye.")

My FAV for YEARS is from Urban Dictionary:
*I'm Audi 5000. or I'm Audi
An adjective describing one or more people who intend on leaving a particular place. Audi's model 5000 sedan was plagued with a problem charcterized by unintended acceleration, in which drivers' complained that the vehicle lurched forward when their foot was on the brake pedal. In reality, it turned out that the acclerator and brake pedals were unusually close together. This is why Audi 5000 is associated with leaving quickly, because that is what this vehicle did when some old fartknocker hit the gas instead of the brakes

…so i was pretty much like all of us who trip on this great resource—you know—Googling for creative ways to convey the subtle illusion of snappy-hippness with a well crafted closer—but what a great surprise to see all of the smiling mind work and respectful co-op on this blog.
I was in quest of the tidy, organized closers and valedictions list yesterday and while it was hilarious to see the progression over the past 5 years or so, I thought that some of you might like a clean listed version. I added a few. It IS a test to find them. It's the least I could do for the cause.

Very cool! Wish our congress played this well together.

Thank you WalkFly for editing the list on 11-25-09. Much to my amazement I know a few not on the list. For the most part 19th century. NOTE:"valedictions typically contain the word yours, a contraction of your servant"
..... I remain, your most humble, loyal and obedient servant,
.....I am, Sir, your most humble and obedient servant,
.....This form is occasionally abbreviated to..Your obt svt,
... The phrase et cetera may be used in place of the remainder of the valediction, as in I am, etc.,
.....I beg to remain, Sir, your most humble and obedient servant
,... Adieu, my dear friend, and believe me ever yours very sincerely and with unalterable affection.... From Ben Franklin's essay The Whistle To Madame Brillon
This is amazing!! I can't believe this has been going on for 7 years and still coming.
Here are ones I haven't seen...
* Good-bye, good luck and may the good Lord take a liking to you
* Off like a herd of turtles
* Off like a terd of hurdles
Thx everyone for the great ideas!
