While I am walking on the street, the college, shopping ...etc I meet native American friends. When we finish a quick chat, I used to say nice to see you. They say good to see you. Is there any difference in usage between "nice to see you" and "good to see you"? Am I wrong if I say nice to see you.

    By "Native American" do you mean the aboriginal people of America, sometimes called "American Indians"

  • Men, women or both? "nice" probably ends up on the feminine side of usage.

Both mean the same thing and can be used interchangeably.

  • That's right but "talking the talk" is essential for acceptance in peer groups. Commented May 9, 2018 at 19:53

    @WeatherVane If I said "nice to see you" to someone, I wouldn't even notice a difference whether someone replied "good to see you" or "nice to see you." Although I think it would be more colloquial to add "too" to the end (e.g., "nice to see you, too") when replying. Commented May 9, 2018 at 20:24
