Missing a verb for my Uma Thurman email

Whenever I get an email introduction ( “Ophir – Uma is a famous actor and a good friend. Uma – Ophir is an old army buddy and yoga student. I think you’ll have lots in common. You are both natural blonds.”), I have a problem with the wording of follow-up email.

Consider these options:

“Uma – it is nice to meet you” (but we never met)

“Uma – it is nice to e-meet you” (e-prefix is so 1990’s )

“Uma – it is nice to meet you via email” (awkward)

“Uma – it is nice to virtually meet you” (again, quite awkward)

It seems like a new verb is needed. Does anyone have any ideas?

Maybe emeet ?or mailmeet? or vmeet? imeet? I really need help here (or if you have good ideas on memory leaks in unmanaged IronPython 64bit code:) ).

    I use ” it is nice to virtually meet you” but agree that it’s awkward.
    How about “nice to be introduced to you”. Naw, also awkward.

    You’re getting introduced to Uma Thurman and that’s what you’re worried about?
    I usually use something like – nice to “meet” you.
    P.S. Hey Guy, long time…

  3. Gilad Says:

    hehehe… this bugged me long ago too. I simply use –

    “Uma, it’s a pleasure to make your acquaintance.”

    It’s a bit old fashioned but appropriate. Middle English is the new black and all that…
