Hello, everyone,

1) Their plan will probably meet with little success.

2) Their plan will probably be met with little success.

I’ve sometimes seen the usage of two patterns of the verb - ‘meet’ in either a active or passive form as above with almost same meaning. However, I guess there must be a subtle difference between two patterns, and I’m curious especially at which case the natives use the passive form. Would appreciate on your explanation.
