- For Teachers
1: Have you arrived home safely yet?
2: Yes, I have.
- To keep answering to 2 , I may say like one of these sentences, correct?
"1: Now I feel secure to go to bed."
"1: Now I feel secure to be off to bed."
Thanks so much to Teachers and other members!
Dear Bhaisahab and Rover_KE!
- Person 2 is a boyfriend cannot go to bed, he doesn't feel secure because he doesn't know whether person 1 (a girlfriend) has come home safely or not, that's why I wrote : "1: Now I feel secure to go to bed." "1: Now I feel secure to be off to bed.". Is that clear now, Teachers? :)
Thanks a lot!
The whole "I feel secure" thing seems strange.
But in my opinion the second one is the worst.
You can eventually go with the first one, I guess. But still, it seems...um I won't say wrong, but definitely an unusual way to say that you're going to bed knowing that your girlfriend is alright.
Not a teacher's opinion.
Now that I am no longer anxious about your safety, I can go to bed.
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
