When you’re a fan of your favorite football team, you might not always be the person who has the most to say.
For the sake of your friendship, however, you should know the best way to say thanks for the great memories you’ve shared.
Whether it’s a warm handshake, a heartfelt smile, or a friendly handshake, you’re in for a treat when you ask your friend to take a picture with you.
“There’s nothing worse than forgetting a friend or a family member,” says Julie Fung, assistant director of the research department at the University of South Australia.
So how do you say thanks?
Fung has compiled a list of words that are appropriate when you’re giving thanks for a great football moment or moment you’re proud of.
When you don’t know the words, check out our list of phrases and sentences that sound best in a social setting.
“We really like the word ‘thank you’ because it implies a sense of gratitude and that people really feel like they’re appreciated,” Fung says.
“It’s not just about the person or person’s response, it’s about the meaning of the gesture.”
Here are some examples of thanks you might want to use to say to a friend: “That’s so awesome” or “I can’t believe you did that” or even “Thank you for the memories.”
The word “thank you” is an important part of many thanksgiving traditions.
In traditional American, Scottish, and German thanksgiving, the recipient receives a “dowel” or a small white coin.
It’s also a common gesture for people of the same gender.
For some, it can be used to thank a friend for a special gift.
In Canada, for example, you could say “thanks for the time” or it could be a brief, but meaningful exchange.
In France, “la rêve” or, in French, “salut d’évalué” is a polite way to thank someone for a job well done.
You could also use the word “même” to acknowledge someone for helping you.
Here are more of Fung’s favorites from the list: “Oh, that was so cool” or the word that means “yes” or when you say it while talking to someone.
It indicates you have a great feeling about the conversation.
It means you’re really excited about the situation and want to share more about it.
It can also mean you want someone to know about your interest or hobby.
“A great night out” or to say “I love you” or for people who have shared a special moment.
It expresses how much you love that person and is a way to show appreciation.
“The boys” or with a person who’s always been a good listener.
You can say this when you’ve been listening to a podcast or watching a documentary.
“And so thank you for your hard work” or an acknowledgement that you are grateful for a friend who’s been a part of your life.
It might mean you’re glad to be there for them, or it can just be a heartfelt way to acknowledge their contributions.
“I’m glad you enjoyed your visit” or you want them to remember that you’re not just a football fan, but a person.
It could be an opportunity for you to say thank you to a local or to tell someone you have fond memories.
“My friend” or saying it when you feel you’re doing your best to remember someone.
“Oh my God” or expressing your gratitude for someone’s efforts.
“That was such a pleasure” or using the word when someone’s contributions to your career or work is significant.
It signals that you value that person’s contributions and that you’ll always be grateful for their efforts.
And lastly, if you’ve had a wonderful time, you can say “thank God” and say that you want your friends to remember you and your family.
