Se retrouver versus rencontrer?

Se retrouver versus rencontrer?

Is there a difference in usage between se retrouver and rencontrer? I think they both mean to meet.

Bonjour Jennifer, Peut-être la dictionnaire Collins-Robert vous aideriez: se retrouver reciprocal reflexive verb to meet, to meet up ⇒ Ils se sont retrouvés devant le cinéma. They met up in front of the cinema. reflexive verb (= s'orienter) to find one's way around se retrouver dans qch [calculs, dossiers, désordre] to find one's way around sth (= finir) se retrouver quelque part to find o.s. somewhere, to end up somewhere se retrouver seul to find o.s. alone se retrouver sans argent to find o.s. with no money (autre locution) s'y retrouver (informal) (financièrement) to break even rencontrer (ʀɑ̃kɔ̃tʀe ) transitive verb [personne] to meet (= trouver) [mot, expression] to come across [difficultés, résistance] to meet with Il me semble que les deux sont synonymes. Bonne chance ! Ron
