Dag!

The example situation is the following: I am meeting with a dutch friend in Rotterdam, and I would like to tell him: "It is a long time since we last met"
How can I say this in dutch?
My attempt:
"Het is een lange tijd sinds we laatste ontmoette!" Is it correct?

Thanks,
mirind4

    "Ontmoeten" is rather formal in Dutch. I would say: "Het is lang geleden dat we elkaar nog gezien hebben".

    In Holland: "Het is lang geleden dat we elkaar voor het laatst gezien hebben". However, the more common expression in this situation would be "Dat is lang geleden!" (It´s been a long time!).
