I would say a warm and welcoming "Hello!"

Initiating contact is something some people can do, others can't. It's probably helpful to assume a benign reason for the asymmetry in initiating contact. No need to take it personally.

In fact, you could assume that you are the one who initiates contact because that's something you are good at. Then you can pat yourself on the back. You are so fortunate to have that ability. Many people do not.
