    Nice to meet/see you, too.

    1. Nice to meet you, too.
    2. Nice to see you, too.
    What's the difference in meaning between #1 and #2?

    Re: Nice to meet/see you, too.

    1) You are meeting the person for the very first time. The person is happy to meet you.

    2) You have already met the person. The person is just happy to see you again.

    Re: Nice to meet/see you, too.

    3) People don't usually say, "Nice to meet you, again." It's rather redundant.

    4) "Nice to see you, again" implies that the two persons (or a group of people) have already met with each other and are happy to see each other again. They don't say, "Oh, hi, nice to meet you, again." They say, "Nice to see you, again."
