    Useing Meet

    Dear Community Members,

    I am writing a story and I am confused about correct use of "meet".

    If I have to arrange a meet for two people and I have to inform the same to other person then what should be the correct sentence.

    As per my understanding, I wrote:

    "I'll meet you with him soon."

    Please let me know if it is correct, If not then please help me with the correct sentence.


    Thank you
    Alok Kumar

    Re: Useing Meet

    Your sentence is incorrect. If all three of you are going to meet at the same time/place, you could say "I'll meet both of you soon" or "We will all meet [up] soon".

    If you will not attend the meeting you would say "I will arrange for the two of you to meet soon".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Useing Meet

    Thank you for you response however I still could not place it in below mentioned discussion. Can you please help me with correct sentence for Bold sentence :

    “You dance really well. I liked your dance.” I praised Komal.
    “My boyfriend also likes my dance.” Komal said.
    “Boyfriend! How many boyfriends do you have?” I asked surprisingly because I was myself trying on her.
    “I have one boyfriend and he has two children now.” She said which made me realize that I still had a chance.
    “Okay. Is one more accepted?” I asked.
    “Who is that?” She asked.
    “Hmm, he is someone who likes you.” I said.
    “Who is that?” She asked again.
    “I’ll meet you with him soon.” I said to her.
    “I may do something wrong after meeting him.” She smiled and said.

    Thank you and Regards,
    Alok Kumar

    Re: Useing Meet

    That sounds like you mean 'I'll bring him to meet you soon'.

    There are a lot of problems with this conversation. I'm moving it to the Editing & Writing Topics forum. Somebody may have time to improve it for you.

    Note my changes to the whole piece above, marked in red. I don't understand the section starting "Okay. Is one more accepted?" I don't know what that question means or why Komal would reply to it with another question which seems to have no relation to the first question.
    Also, if you were flirting with Komal (I think that's what you meant by "I was myself trying on her"), why would you offer to help her meet another man?

    I've done my best with it but I'm not sure that I really understand what you were trying to say.

    Note that you particularly need to study how we use punctuation with/around quotation marks.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
