Erhard 1, 2 13 So 'I look forward to seeing you' means 'I occasionally look forward to seeing you'? I have never in normal conversation said 'I look forward' instead of 'I'm looking forward', apart from in the the sense of 'I look forward to these occasions', and have never heard anyone else say it either.
I have said it in formal situations like business meetings, and read it many times in letters. This is without a doubt the right answer. Despite user's opinion, the difference has nothing to do with formality. It has to do with tense.

Cagey , Mar 11, Let's say someone wants to make an reservation for a meeting with me, and I replied: I am usually available on the afternoons of Monday and Friday. If I wanted to say "available on Monday all day" that's what I would say. If somebody said "I'm available on Monday, and on Tuesday and Friday afternoons" I would probably have to ask if they meant only Monday afternoon or all day.
It might be clear from their intonation what they meant. If you want to make it absolutely clear, there is no reason why you shouldn't say "I am available on the afternoons of Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday" Hermione.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question. People generally understand next Friday as the Friday after this, that is, if you are on a Thursday, and someone tells you to meet him next Friday, it doesn't mean the next day, but rather, Friday week, the Friday after.
Some pedantics will believe and argue that it is, as you say, the Friday that comes next. That is valid reasoning. However, if you want to be understood by the majority, "next Friday" will mean Friday next week. So, in order to mean the Friday that actually comes next, you would say this Friday , but next Friday is generally understood by more people to mean the Friday after this. From then on it's just this Friday - until Thursday, when it's tomorrow.
Except that by Wednesday or Thursday I might revert to calling the later one Friday week , if I was talking to a Canadian..
Since "this Friday" always indicates "the immediate Friday coming up, no more than 6 days from now. That would make sense and would be quite logical. However, it's just not the case in common speech.
