Do these sentences mean the same?

Hi! Do these two sentences mean the same? Is there any difference in meaning and connotation?

  1. I can’t wait to see you again.

  2. I’m counting the days till I see you again.

I often hear these sentences being said or read them in books. To me, the sentences give out the same meaning but I just to be sure I am understanding them correctly. Thanks.

Hi chocolatee,

You asked:

They both express the same wish or hope but I would say that (2) is more loving more affectionate.


Why have I got a feeling that this kind of love declarations appear more often in fiction than in real life? Do people still say these things nowadays? A pity, isn’t it?

Yes, Chocolatee, both sentences convey the same, blissfully romantic message. And, agreeing with Alan, I would say that the second one is more poetic.

Ah, love!

Thank you for the responses to my question. I agree with both of you. The second one sounds more romantic to me too.
