    Default you belong to/with me ?

    Is there a difference between "you belong to/with me" ?

    As for me, there is belong to somebody (to be a property of sb) and belong with something (to look good in specific 'location' or is similar to something - like books and genre of literature). I may be wrong however as I'm no teacher :)

    Agreed -- that is the understood definition. Not bad for not being a teacher.

    Not a teacher

    As Allenman said, you got the meaning right.

    I would however suggest some presentation such as the one I have suggested below; this will make it easier to read.

    As for me, there is "belong to somebody" (to be a property of sb) and "belong with something" (to look good in a specific 'location' or is be similar to something - like books and genres of literature).
