Dear teachers,

When we studied English at school, we learned that to go out with a girl/ boy is having a "date". And, to meet someone for business or to go to a job interview is called an "appointment". What about meeting a friend who may be my best friend/ buddy? Say, if I want to see him at three. Can I go like "I have a meeting with my friend at three."? This simple question has tasked my brain for a while.

Please advise.

Hi guys,

Commonly, you'd be more likely to say 'I have to meet my friend at three'. The word 'meeting' suggests structure and purpose, it's not 'casual and friendly'.

Best wishes, Clive

I think, it could be meeting or appointment or rendezvous
