Could you explain the difference between
That doesn't mean anything. Don't use it.
"meet up with"
Get together informally to do something - hang out, go to lunch, go hiking, whatever:
Let's meet up with them tonight at seven in front of the theater.
Get together more formally for a scheduled meeting:
We'll meet with the fundraising committee tomorrow.
Me too. I would never understand I met Harold to mean "I bumped into Harold." If that usage was standard when I lived in Toronto forty years ago, I never noticed it.Maybe it's a regional thing. If I have a planned encounter with somebody I just say I'm going to meet them. (Example: "I'll meet you at your place.")

It does not seem natural to me. If I encountered the same man repeatedly and by chance at the post office, I'd say I bumped into him. I'd reserve meet for an intentional encounter."I met my mom near the post office". As I understood if I say "I met my mom....." it means that I met her by chance? Can I say then "I meet a man in a grey hat every day near the supermarket".
Can we use "meet" to express everyday habits?
