A quick and easy way to determine which is correct is to remove the first part.

How many times can you see me?

You wouldn't say:

How many times can you see I?

 

How many times can you see Nathan and me?

Don't be confused by the myth that the Queen always says "my husband and I". When she uses that phrase it usually comes at the beginning of a sentence such as...

 

"My husband and I would like to welcome you all ...."

 

When you remove "my husband and" you are left with "I would like to welcome you all..." which is perfectly correct.

I agree with the first answer.  How many times can you see Nathan and me?  "Nathan and I" comes after the verb.  However, if Nathan and I  are doing the action, then you would write Nathan and I.  Examples:  Nathan and I went shopping.  Nathan and I played cards.  Nathan and I watched a movie.   My father saw Nathan and me at the theatre.  He will meet Nathan and me after lunch.  She hoped to see Nathan and me at the ball game.  Do you notice the difference in the examples?
