    when do we choose the correct one ? Is there a difference ?

    To introduce people ... when can we say " I`d like you to meet my friend ....." and ....* "Let me introduce my friend ...."?

    There is no difference in my opinion. They are identical.

    But "When do we choose the correct one?" is a sentence that does not express your real question. We always choose the correct one if one is more correct than the other and we know which one it is!

    Ibrahim Abudhela, note that we don't connect sentences with lines of dots as you did in both posts. It's only appropriate where I have left three dots (an ellipsis) in red above.

    You could use either of your suggestions when introducing a friend to someone. Of course, "I'd like you to meet my friend" might just be a statement of fact. Your friend could be somewhere else and you are simply telling someone else that you think it would be a good idea for those two people to meet.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
