Student or Learner
This is the first time I've met her.
(A) I've never met her before.
(B) I had never met her before.
Which one is correct? Or both are incorrect?
I just want to paraphrase "This is the first time I've met her."
If you don't get any context, which one sounds natural to you?
If I were a native speaker of English, I would never shut up. :-)

As it happens, I agree with you on this occasion.
But in the OP's words:
I just want to paraphrase "This is the first time I've met her",
only (A) sounds natural.
