Does 「会ったりする人」 mean, "someone you see a lot"?

I'm not sure about the 会ったりする part...

〜たり〜たりする。
do things like 〜 and 〜. sometimes do 〜 and sometimes do 〜.

飲んだり食べたりした。 we did things like drinking and eating.

a single action/event can be used.
夏には泳いだりする。 in summer i do things like swimming.

so i would guess 会ったりする人 is the person who does things like meeting/interviewing.

たりis like the ~や ~など form for verbs. You can use it singular, just like you can use など singular. Also, in slang, the final する is sometimes dropped.
The harder they come, the harder they fall, one and all.
