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. Commented Sep 5, 2018 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.

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

These are only a few examples of the many options available. What feels most appropriate will vary depending on the context and personal preference.
