Hi guys, my boss is British and I have to speak with a colloquial mannerism exerting a hubristic yet self-deprecating elegance with his holiness!!! I am experiencing a crisis of my self-belief.  #nervous 🙁

First impressions are very important. So it is crucial that you leave a good impression when you first meet someone, especially if it’s for an important job, or someone who could potentially be very special to you!

I have listed some of the most common ways to say ‘Nice to meet you’ below, and included the responses from the other person, so you know what to say, no matter whether you speak first or second!

 

Formal:

  • 1) Pleased to meet you
  • 2) Pleased to meet you too 

 

Formal and Informal:

  • 1) It’s very nice to meet you
  • 2) Nice to meet you too 

 

Formal:

  • 1) It’s a pleasure to meet you
  • 2) Pleasure to meet you too

 

Formal (This is regarded as somewhat archaic by many people nowadays, as the question isn’t answered with the reciprocal same question, but it used to be spoken as a statement, not a question (without the raised intonation at the end):

  • 1) How do you do?
  • 2) How do you do?

for greetings;

R Brent – In response to your question (person a) “Nice to meet you”
responding person 2) “Nice to be met”
is this response polite, inappropriate, rude, unknown?), I would say that it is unknown, and if ever used would probably come across as quite rude…

It is better to say that you are also happy to meet the other person. If you say you are glad that the other person is happy to meet you, it could make you seem quite arrogant!

I hope that answers your question.
