I've read the relevant forum topics and I know that we can't say "me too" as an answer to "Nice to meet you!" but can we say "me too" as an answer to "Glad to meet you!"?
This is especially confusing for me because I've read on the Net that "Nice to meet you" is short for "It is nice to meet you". "You too" is a short way of saying "It is nice to meet you too". "I'm glad to meet you" should be responded with "me too" because it is a short way of saying "Me too, I'm glad to meet you". However, it does imply a slight confusion so it might be better to say it in full: "I'm glad to meet you too".
Is there a clear-cut answer to this?
And are the following expressions more appropriate and common than "you too?"
- My pleasure.
- The pleasure is mine.
- Same here.
