I don't want to look like I'm ready to abandon ship any given moment.

How do you respond to people who want to hire you or people who are looking for someone with your skills and qualifications while you're on duty for your current employer?

I once had a meeting for work and the person I was meeting told me that she's looking for new people in her team, just in case I was interested. I just smiled because I didn't know how to respond appropriately, though I did want to explore the opportunity further. I got flustered.
There was another time when I bumped into a couple of people on a work day, and they told me that the Country Head of a company that they were with was "looking for somebody like me".
How do I respond with my interest without looking like an opportunist? For future reference, hopefully.
