When someone comes up to you, they approach you while they are moving towards you. But what (phrasal) verb is used in an opposite case?
For instance, you say:
- The small girl came up to me and asked for money.
But how about a case when you go towards someone else? Please have a look on the example below:
- She was really gorgeous. After that ceremony, I was waiting for a friendly gathering to meet her for the second time. Yesterday, we had a party to which she was invited too. When everybody was dancing, I ................... to her and after greetings started talking to her and fortunately we made quick friends.
Logically, "went up" should work here (comparing to "go up"), but perhaps the phrasal verb "go up" doesn't have the meaning in my question. So what verb would you use in my self-made example above?
