Should I reply to "nice to meet you"?
Hello! I need your advice. When someone says to me "Nice to meet you" how can I answer? Or I shouldn't answer at all? Appreciate your help.

Hello Cormac, This is a very common way to greet someone when you are meeting them for the first time, so it's a great idea to find out the best way to respond. There are several things you can do and say in this situation. One of the most frequently used replies is = 'Nice to meet you too'. Other alternatives are: Extend it slightly = It's nice to meet you too. Reduce it (in informal settings) = you too! Say nothing = If you are meeting a dignitary, who is greeting a long line of people, it would be acceptable to just smile nicely and nod your head. I hope these options help you. Have a great day!

'Nice to meet you too', 'likewise' and 'the pleasure is mine' are some options.
You can say. Same to you, Nice to meet you too, you too. See you soon!
Yes, you can say "you too" which most people say. It's just to acknowledge the person and to be polite.
Hello! I used to work with agents from different countries and met a lot of new people every day. To be honest I replied to every person: 'Nice to eet you too' or 'Me too'. This is just standard act of courtesy
Simply, you can reply ( nice to meet/ see you too).
To keep it small and specific, i prefer using “likewise” or “mutual feelings”
Hi there,You can answer by saying ''It is nice meeting you too''
You may simply answer by saying "likewise" which means you feel the same.
Nice to meet you too ! Is polite … or you too … is also acceptable
