    Default A Question of "Jane and I" or "Jane and me&qu

    I can't undo what happened between Jane and myself, but I also can't deny what I felt that night.
    Is that proper, or is it better to use "me" or "I" instead of "myself"?

    After a preposition, we use the object form of a pronoun,so 'me' is correct here.

    PS Cas, the link didn't work this morning.

    Thanks. Ah, those darn prepositions.

    Fixed link: http://www.wsu.edu/~brians/errors/myself.html
    The misuse of “I” and “myself” for “me” is caused by nervousness about “me.”
    That is so true. It's like it's been ingrained into our minds that "me" is automatically bad grammar.
