    About 'Do you mind .....'

    Do you mind if I sit here?
    Do you mind my sitting here?
    Do you mind me sitting here?
    ------------------------------------------

    I would not use DO YOU MIND ME SITTING HERE, because I don't feel comfortable adjusting my mouth saying 'mind me doing sth.'. I want to ask native speakers of the three choices which you would most likely say in that situation? And also, which you don't likely use.

    Thank you.

    All are commonly used, I would most likely use the first.
