Most likely: a "physical" meeting (i.e. face to face).

Like you and I get together with someone from China in Cairo this afternoon? We have 20,000 members from 40,000 places and at least one of us is a cyclops - not likely. grin

I agree with samdie that it means physically meeting up. It is possible to search for members by country, and it's not unfeasible to find someone living in your city, so you could actually meet for chatting in Spanish.

Of course you right. On the other hand if some young highschool student invite me for a get-together, it might be a shock when I show up with a walker. jeje

But that's not a "proximity" issue. There are several _other_ choices (email, etc.) are there not? I've seen posts in this forum that made explicit reference to people looking for interlocutors in a specific city.

Well, in that case, ¿Come se dice 'meeting up' en español'
