    Meet vs meet up

    I would want to meet up with you if I were there.

    I would want to meet with you İf I were there.

    I would want to meet you İf I were there.

    can you please tell me what was the difference meaning of these sentences? Are they natural and which one is common?

    Thats the only one this 69-year-old speaker of BrE would use. I have to say that I can't think of many situations in which I would say this.

    Assume that I said to a friend. What would you say?

    What is the difference between "meet" and "meet up"?

    Re: Meet vs meet up

    My impressions:
    meet up with you - You will be there and I will be there. Let's get together (and hang out)
    meet with you - This sounds more like a business meeting
    meet you - We have not yet met in the past. This is my opportunity to meet you.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
