Hi! If a person closes a letter with the phrase, 'Hasta Siempre', what does that mean? Is it a nice thing to say to a friend or is it for a boyfriend'

Whoa! I take "goodbye forever!" (and since they seem to me to be the same) "hasta siempre" to imply that there will be no further communication. Not what I would call a positive response!

"para siempre" on the other hand, would be an "entirely different kettle of fish".

James, I have heard para siempre for forever, how do they differ?

To me they're the same. Maybe a native speaker can say if there is a difference.

It means forever. I would think it would be used mainly by lovers expressing their undying affection.
