I need to know the exact difference between these two : 'whatever' and 'what ever'. I don't even know if the 'What ever' could exist, in fact (in two distinct words). For the context: someone ask me for precisions about a writer's group challenge. I gave her a very long and detailed explanation, thinking she was interested to know about it and probably join the group. Her answer had been: " What ever... ", exactly wrote like that (in the cotation marks) and I'm not enough 'English' to understand if she need more informations, if she didn't understand what I sent to her or if she don't care about it. Could you, please, be gentle and explain it to me? Edited to correct the mistakes I could find!
