    Does this sentence mean:
    'In the past I have met him but now I never do.' ?
    or
    I used to spend time with him but now I never see him. ?

    or, possibly

    Occasionally we used to meet but now we never do. ?

    Perhaps you mean:
    I used to see him every once in a while, but nowadays I never do.
    The sentence as written is unworkable. (Capitalize I.)
