likewise, same to you

S'il vous plait, what are some quick ways you would return a routine polite complimentary statement, for example:

Someone has just told you they are glad to have met you in a very routine way (for instance, you're leaving a party and you're saying goodbye to a bunch of people you've met and spoken to briefly) -- in english we might just quickly say "Likewise", meaning I feel the same way.

Another common instance in english is wishing people a happy holiday (whatever that may be) -- in that case, a quick reply might be, "Thanks, same to you".

Merci beaucoup d'avance

    Je ne sais pas si ce soit du bon français ou non dans ce sens, mais pour moi, likewise se rend de même. Same to you je dirais à toi (vous) aussi.


    when someone replies after thanking him and says:

    no problem likewise.

    Does this mean I have to do the same?
