    meet VS meet with

    Could someone tell me the difference between MEET and MEET WITH in a sentence like the following:

    I MET /MET WITH her in a store while shopping for X-mass.

    Thank you.

    Re: meet VS meet with

    First, note spelling Xmas. Or better yet, Christmas.

    This is not an easy question.
    "I met with her" seems to imply that you met for a a specific reason, that you had something to do or talk about together.
    "I met up with her" is similar in meaning.

    "I met her" could be a more casual encounter: You could also say
    I ran into her.
    I bumped into her.
    if the meeting was entirely unplanned.

    "I met" could sometimes imply that it was the first time.
    Where did you meet your wife? I met her at a party in San Francisco.

    I hope we'll meet some day.
