    meet = be met with?

    Most of us feel shy from time to time, usually when we are met with a new situation or new people.

    In the sentence above, can 'are met with' be changed with 'meet'?

    Do the both forms have the same meaning?

    Thanks in advance.

    Re: meet = be met with?

    'Meet', 'are faced with' or 'encounter' are all better than 'met with'.
