Either would do. I"d write "seeing you" rather than "meeting you". Meeting tends khổng lồ refer lớn a first encounter.

Can you explain why meeting is better than lớn meet? Is it because it is the past tense? If it is not the past tense, we usually say it is nice lớn meet you, right?

No, it has nothing to vì chưng with tenses. "Meeting" sounds less formal than "to meet", to me. I didn"t say "meeting" was necessarily better.

But, people usually say it is nice to meet you, especially in the first time meeting. So, it seems tense matters. It is nice to lớn meet you while it was nice meeting you.

My preference for "It was nice meeting you" over "It was nice lớn meet you" has nothing to bởi vì with tenses, because they are both in the past tense.

At a first encounter, I think "It is nice to meet you" is more common than "It is nice meeting you". At the over of that encounter, I think "It was nice meeting you" and "It was nice khổng lồ meet you" are pretty much the same.

I asked several American people lớn say it was nice meeting you or it was nice to meet you. They all agree it should be it was nice meeting you but it is nice lớn meet you.

Yes, they are both in the past tense. But, we should say it was nice meeting you and it is nice to meet you. Whether we should say meeting or to meet depends on it was or it is.
