    Hi, how are you?

    Hello

    When somebody says to you: Hi, how are you? Do you always give an answer to the question "how are you?" or do you ignore it and just say "Hi"?

    If somebody asks how you are, it's polite to respond to that rather than to just say "hi".

    Re: Hi, how are you?

    So you would rather say "fine" than "hi"?

    I've noticed that sometimes some people say "Hi, how are you" and answer only "hi".

    You'll hear it, but it make come across as not particularly friendly.
