for me /to me

Postby Tukanja » Thu Oct 29, 2009 8:01 pm

Under another topic I said
It's been foggy for me for a long time actually.

Should I've said
It's been foggy to me for a long time actually.

Now I prefer the second sentence.

Thanks

Ah, now I've seen I forgot to ask the question.
Which sentence is the correct one?

The second one sounds a bit better. However, either one could be correct, depending on what “it” is. Here are some suggestions on how to say it:

Its actually been foggy to me for a long time.
Its actually been foggy for me for a long time.
The view has been foggy for me.
Those ideas are foggy to me.

I hope this helps.

I think I've made a mistake again. I should have said Should have I said instead of Should I've said, should I, in here quoted sentence?
