    Dear all,

    Does the following sentence sound formal? And does it sound like I'm asking a VIP to grant me some time because he/she is always busy?

    "I would be delighted if you could spare some time to meet up with me"

    I thank you in advance for your help.

    Or actually... "spare some of your time to..." Thanks!

    Thank you! I've heard many native speakers that use indistinctively meet or meet up. Thanks for the posts!

    I think you mean indiscriminately." Yes, you cannot assume that every native speaker is aware of colloquial usage, regional or otherwise.
