Some alternatives:That's me once more,
When someone says " Nice to meet you" can we answer " me too" or " you too" or " and you" meaning ' Nice to meet you too" ?
Or is the reply '' Nice to meet you too" the only correct one?
Greetengs from Poland,
"you too" is short for "nice meeting you too"
this is the most natural thing to say, i think.
or you could say "likewise," meaning that you say the same thing in return.
if you say "me too" then it could mean that it is nice to meet yourself.
Sometimes some of us do find ourselves saying that, but then we realize we have made a mistake, and are embarrassed and correct ourselves.This might be a belated question, but do native speakers of English ever say "me too" in that situation? I found a weblog reporting that "me too" is used by native speakers of English, but I can't believe that.
In the present context, I might say "for me too" or "you too" but not plain "me too". I agree with Dwipper's Post #30.
On the question of to meet vs. meeting:
It was nice to meet you. [I wanted to meet you and am glad I did.]
"To meet" sees the moment of meeting.
It was nice meeting you. [I am glad I met you.]
"Meeting" sees the entirety of the meeting.
Entirely logical, but wouldn't you agree that in casual speech, quite a lot of people would say "Me too" just out of habit."Me too" really does not make sense here:
It's nice to meet me too.
I too am nice to meet you.
And "Nice to meet you too" seems to be saying "of course meeting me is a pleasure, and by the way, meeting you is a pleasure too".
I don’t interpret it this way at all. “Nice to meet you too” sounds completely acceptable to me.And "Nice to meet you too" seems to be saying "of course meeting me is a pleasure, and by the way, meeting you is a pleasure too".
Agreed, this is the shortest way of answering."Same here" is likely the best option, in informal contexts, at least for me.
Honestly, at least in the U.S., students probably wouldn't normally say "Nice to meet you" either. The more typical exchange would be something like:Regards post #12, I've heard that when it comes to '' my pleasure '', it only refers to formal language. I don't think that two students will use '' my pleasure '' if they are being introduced each other. What do all of you think about it?
