    Smile for & to

    Dear teachers,

    Are the 2 sentences below the same ?

    1. It is like a crying sound to me.
    2. It is like a crying sound for me.

    I am much obliged to you for your guidance.

    Re: for & to

    I use #1 unless it is meant for me as opposed to some other person or thing. She was crying for me, not for that other guy. It was like a crying sound for me, not for my best friend.

    If it is just the identification of a sound that is similar to crying then i'd always use "to me it is like a crying sound".....or as worded in #1.
