I would say that is one definition.

Mirriam Webster gives the following definitions:

As a verb:

1 a: to meet as an adversary or enemy
b: to engage in conflict with
2: to come upon face-to-face
3: to come upon or experience especially unexpectedly

As a noun:

1: a meeting between hostile factions or persons: a sudden often violent clash, an encounter between the police and demonstrators
2 a: a chance meeting, an accidental encounter
b: a particular kind of meeting or experience with another persona romantic encounter
3: a coming into the vicinity of a celestial body, the Martian encounter of a spacecraft

Try writing a sentence using the word and I will check it.

And btw, welcome to the forum!
