Use infinitives instead of gerunds. I didn’t expect to find you here. If required by semantics, it can also be followed by infinitive composite structures. Such as: He expected her to go with him. He expected her to go with him.
Don’t think that expect only means “expect” and “expect”, it can also mean “expect” and “expect”, etc. For example: I expect a storm. I expect a storm to come. I expect that I will be back on Sunday.
Sometimes it can be used in a bad way. He expects to fail the exam. He doesn’t expect to pass the exam.
