“Hope all is well” is one of those things that doesn’t really require an answer - it’s still nice to give one, though!

What Can I Say In Reply To, “Hope All Is Well”?
This is the kind of thing that’s usually said when you’re not with somebody in person. You might receive a letter, or an email, that closes like this.

You’ve got several choices when replying:

  • “Everything’s fine, thanks!”
  • “Hope you’re doing okay as well!” (This saves you having to repeat exactly what they said)
  • Don’t reply. Although it’s a pleasantry, “Hope all is well” doesn’t require a response - if your conversation is pretty much over, and there’s nothing else you need to reply to, you don’t have to send a message back!
So Is “Hope All Is Well” A Question, Or Not?!
It’s not a question, no. The other person is wishing you well, and it’s up to you whether you confirm that you’re well or not.

When I receive a messages like that, whether or not I reply depends on what else is going on in the conversation.

If the conversation is going to be continued anyway, I’ll probably let the other person know that I’m okay, and ask how they are.

Luckily, there’s no hard-and-fast rule about this one, so it’s really up to you how you reply!

When someone says, hope all is well after a break up and they dumped you. It's not worth a response.
