"So good to see you."

Spanish speakers! If I'm reuniting with a friend I haven't seen in a while, what is the best way to say "It's so good to see you!"?

Gracias!

There are numerous ways, the most common ones:

  • ¡Qué alegría me da verte!
  • ¡Qué alegría verte!
  • ¡Qué bien te ves! ¿Cómo has estado?
  • ¡Me alegra tanto verte! ¿Cómo te ha ido?
  • ¡Tanto tiempo sin verte! ¿Cómo estás?

You can also combine any exclamatory sentence with any question I wrote.

I don't often use exclamation sentences. I might say something like: "Me alegra verte de nuevo. ¿Qué tal estás?" or I may change the question for "¿Cómo te ha ido todo este tiempo?" if I want that person to tell me what they have been doing since the last time we met.

However, other people do prefer an exclamation sentence. Anyone of the expressions which Lamarz said is a good choice. But, "¡Qué bien te ves!" means "How well you look!". One'd better only use it if it is appropriate, despite being such a common greeting.

To be sincere I've never used any of those sentences, I'm not the type of person who gets excited to see others, but I do hear it a lot too and I always take it as compliment to well-being as "hey, you look happy and healthy", never as a sign of "those clothes look good" which is what it would normally stand for.
