I've heard that the best response to 'Nice to meet you.' is 'You, too.', not 'Me, too.'.
Is this true? If so, why?
"Me, too" doesn't make logical sense because the me doesn't replace anything in the original sentence.
But. "I enjoyed our conversation."..."Me, too." is logically acceptable, because me replaces the I in the original sentence. I say logically, because we know gramatically it should be "I did, too." The other defense of "Me, too." is that you are actually saying "That is true for me, too."

'You, too' in this case is short for 'nice to meet you, too.'
This makes sense. Thank you for your explanation!
The key here seems which word replaces which word.
