Good question. It mainly means examine and expect, though she and Shakespeare choose this word to all the impression of all three. Juliet will look, literally, at Paris. She will then examine him. She will expect, in the sense of hope, to like him. She was also appear to like him, since she has been raised to be polite and dutiful.
All three, then.
