    Re: sorry for vs sorry about

    Hi Takoyaki,

    Sorry for suggest sympathy, pity or remorse.

    Example:

    He felt sorry for her.

    Sorry about suggest concerning, regret or disappointment.

    Example:

    I am sorry about giving you bad news.

    In a similar way, we can use sorry for to express responsibility.

    Example:

    Sorry for doing something.

    Regards,
