je l'ai rencontré is correct so I don't understand.
Freeform Writing Exercise B2
Thank you for bringing our attention to this as it is an error that I have now corrected -
J'ai rencontré votre mère
J'ai fait la connaissance de votre mère
J'ai fait la rencontre de votre mère
Despite the rule that penser takes the indicative unless used in the interrogative or negative, couldn't the phrase "je commençais à penser que je..." express sufficient doubt for the subjunctive to apply?
You could, but the use of the subjunctive when not strictly required can sound highfalutin and you could also argue that the doubt is dispersed by the fact that the speaker has now met someone.
I personally wouldn't have used it.
