Hey there! Are you ready for casual polite greeting number 4? Well ready or not, here it comes!

How’s it going?

 How’s it going?: This is another polite greeting which can be used instead of the slightly more formal “How are you?” or “How do you do?”  This is an appropriate greeting for everyone, whether they are younger or older than you.  A very similar phrase to “How’s it going” is “How are you doing?”; the second is considered to be a bit less casual and is often used to greet someone who may be having a difficult time in their lives.  For example, it would be a better choice to use “How are you doing?” when greeting someone who was recently ill or experienced a death in the family.
