people always say this two words when they meet someone else. i don't know who started it first but i think the word has been using by people around the world. i believe there is a lot of word in other language which is same meaning as this two words. Did you ever say the same word when you meet someone else or you say a different word to other people. Did you say this word or you have your own word to say like this. If you use other word then this, what was it is and did you heard someone say it and you follow it. :)

Hello is the word, which I use to greet others. Hello makes the conversation easier and we can get along well with the fellow on the other side.

Yes I do, I say hello or hi to someone I just meet. I want them to feel that I want them as my friend.It's good to be nice but depends on how and where did you meet the person. I am not that picky meeting friends but I see to it I know they're background. It's pretty strange but I already experienced some situation like this, I met a person whom I really don't know then I trust them but just betrayed me. Maybe I was traumatized.
