How to say "it's nice to KNOW you"?
I heard people saying "it's nice to meet/see you (here)" or stuff similar to that.
But what if I just meet somebody for the first time, and feel very happy to know this person?
Example (A conversation on Whatsapp or facebook after Jo has given a talk):
-Joe: Hi, the talk you gave this morning was very interesting! The ***** you mentioned really inspired me!
-Jo: Thank you, I am glad you found it helpful.
-Joe: My name is Joe, by the way. I am also working on the same topic as you!
-Jo: Nice to (????) you! Perhaps we can work with each other in the future.
Does it make sense to say "It's nice to KNOW you"? (It actually does not sound like English to me).
