    Thumbs up 'is older than me' or 'is older than I am'?

    Could you please give me some guidelines - when to use subject/object pronoun after 'than'?
    Thanks in advance.

    Welcome!

    'is older than I am' is most correct. But 'is older than me' is very often said, and especially in everyday English is also considered correct.

    Read the following, including the "usage notes".
