1 Answer 1


You need a hyphen or no space

Can we skip the meetup/meet-up this week

but I would prefer

Can we skip the meeting this week and meet up next week

So a meetup/meet-up or to meet up

    I would suggest you need a hyphen (or no space) when it's a noun, but I would write meet up as a phrasal verb (with a space).

  • I wouldn't use meet up as a verb at all. What's wrong with just meet?

  • It does sound more like an "Arranged informal meeting" that just meet. IF we meet, we do not have to talk at all. Just walk or sit next to each other in silence. If we have a meetup, we are going to discuss stuff
