    Wink Greeting

    When I meet people first, they say nice to meet you- I respond nice to meet you,too.
    when they leave, they say again "nice to meet you,again". Can I respond "mee,too"or "you,too"
    some people say-it was nice meeting you. Can I respond "me, too. Or you, too"

    Re: Greeting

    I sometimes hear 'Me too' from native speakers as a response to '(It was) nice to meet you', but it sounds very strange to me. I tend to respond, 'And you', though that is not particularly logical.

    I tend to say "You too" in response.

    I imagine that those saying "Me too" are perhaps answering the unspoken but suggested "I am glad we met". It's just a thought.
