Could you tell me what does "Look over" means in this context?
.........Last year he wrote to her father that the girl could come over and he would marry her. So she came, alone. But the prospective bridegroom didn't show up. I wrote to him and last week he appeared and looked her over. Finally he said he'd changed his mind. He wasn't sure whether he wanted to marry her or not.............
My teacher said that it means to 'meet' or 'visit', But I think here it means that he went there and inspected her in a cursory way.
