    I am a japanese pretty girl.

    Re: difference between 'such as' and 'for example'

    And I am a handsome gaikokujin... but this is not the sort of forum for such hanky-panky.

    'For example' is slightly more formal perhaps than 'such as', but the main difference is that 'for example' can follow the example, where 'such as' cannot.
