Is there a good, versatile substitute for "sounds good"? "OK" isn't as positive. "It would be my pleasure" is too positive. "Yes" doesn't quite work. "Okey dokey" is too silly.

    "Groovy" will get you odd looks now days. There are plenty other slang terms, but likely usage is likely localized. I think "cool" still works generally. – Wayfaring Stranger Sep 5 '18 at 22:42

    You'll likely want something different based on what exactly you're trying to mean. Do you mean "I accept", "I'll comply", "Doesn't bother me", "That sounds like a good idea", "That's awesome/cool" etc. – Zebrafish Sep 5 '18 at 23:36

There's actually plenty of these. "Sure thing," "Of course," "All right," "That's fine," etc.

Each has a slightly nuanced difference, but the above are certainly more positive than a simple "OK" or "Yes" and less so than "It would be my pleasure."



good deal


fine by me
