    meet up

    teachers, could you please explain the differences between 'meet' and 'meet up (with)'.

    I'll meet her as soon as possible.
    I met up her yersterday morning before lunch.
    We'll be meeting up with each other in 2 hours.

    Are they fine? If not, could you proofread?

    many thanks

    Re: meet up

    meet up contains an intrusive "up". It increasingly contains the implication of a prior arrangement to meet.
