    Answering "Nice To Meet You"

    Hi All

    As far as I know, replying "nice to meet you" with "you too" or "likewise" are correct.

    I wonder if it would also be correct answering with "me too", assuming that it is the short form of "that is true for ME TOO". If the answer is somehow "yes", can it be considered as a worthy alternative or just grammatically acceptable.

    Thanks

    Re: Answering "Nice To Meet You"

    I sometimes hear 'Me too' as a response to 'Pleased to meet you'. I don't like it, but accept that it's used. It doesn't work at all for 'Nice to meet you'.

    Please don't submit the same question to two different forums at the same time. It's frustrating to post a response only to find that it has already been answered elsewhere.
