Perfect infinitive

Post by Rustamsher » Sun Aug 04, 2013 10:32 am

At the party, a girl is talking to another girl who has just met for the first time.

The girl said, "I am glad to have met you".

Is the highlighted verb phrase correct?

Thank you

Yes, although a simple 'Nice to meet you' would probably do...
