    resonate for or resonate with

    two examples:
    "An idea that resonates with many voters."
    "Top 10 Romantic Movies that resonate for me."
    so which one is correct? or they're just interchangeable ?
    thanks a lot!

    The second sounds wrong to me. I certainly use only the first. My dictionary gives only with.

    But I see many natives use the second one too,here's another example:
    " That distribution description doesn't resonate for me or for my family or for my friends orfor my community."

    Re: resonate for or resonate with

    I agree that only "with" sounds right.
    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.
