Simon m'attend à la gare." can mean expects me at the station?

I thought that only with the reflexive s'attendre à, would it be translated as expect. Is that an incorrect understanding on my part?

This relates to:
Attendre quelqu'un vs s'attendre à quelque chose = to wait vs to expect -

Bonjour Jennifer !

You use "s'attendre à" with something, an event, but to express "to expect [someone]", you can only use the verb "attendre [quelqu'un]".

I hope that's helpful!
À bientôt !
