to fix up...

    Hi again!

    Let's see what the other people think, but for me, as a North American, fix up is used more as a way to say "repair" or "improve"

    We fixed up the house before we moved in.

    I think you could fix/make/set/etc. an appointment or date.

    Hope this helps!

    Can an appointment/ a date been fixed up?
    Yes, you can "fix up" an appointment or a date, juliet. The distinction between that and "make" an appointment is that - to me at least - "fix up" implies that a degree of effort went into making the arrangement.

    You can also "fix somebody up with something".
