A lot of English learners say "very ___" when they want to strongly emphasize a description. But in reality, "very" doesn't sound very strong. It sounds more careful and polite.
"So ___" expresses a stronger feeling about something:
Oh my God, this is so good!
You used to sing so beautifully when you were little.
I'm glad to finally meet you.
Say "I'm glad to finally meet you" when you first meet someone who you've heard a lot about before. For example, you can say this when you meet a friend of a friend, or one of your spouse's coworkers.
Another way that you can say this is:
It's great to finally meet you.
I've heard so much about you.
Say this when you meet someone for the first time who you've heard about before:
Sandy: Josh, this is Azumi.
Josh: Azumi, nice to meet you. I've heard so much about you!
Azumi: Nice to meet you, Josh. Sandy's told me a lot about you as well.
