What is the meaning of the phrase ‘Not that i can think of’?

4 Answers

  • i think its pretty literal, isnt it? for example:

    if someone asks "are there any restaurants near by?

    someone might answer "none that i can think of"

    or if someone asks "have you heard anything about ____ since monday?"

    and the person might answer, "no, not that i can think of"

    its just a longer way of saying "no"

  • It’s somewhere between "No" and "I don’t know".

    Q: "Are there any restaurants open at this time?"

    A: "Not that I can think of."

    The answer means “No, as far as I know – but I might be wrong”.

  • It depends on the circumstances but it generally means he is glad you didn’t tell on yourself.
