    Correct my sentences plz 3!

    I have made the following sentences. Please let me know if I have made any mistakes.

    He has set his sights on her.(means he wants to get married to her).

    She retched at the idea of kissing him.

    I have given up a lot of opportunities just becuase of you.

    I will add this to my experience.

    He swore on the bible to take revenge.

    Dont let the children out of your sight.

    You will never get married to a pretty girl like her. You'd better lower your sights/expectations.

    Thanks.

    Or He has his heart set on her.

    Okay if you mean she was physically ill.

    I have given up a lot of opportunities just because of you.

    I will add this to my list of experiences.

    You will never get married to okay, but "marry" instead of "get married to" is my choice a pretty girl like her. You'd better lower your sights/expectations.

    Thanks.

    Re: Correct my sentences plz 3!

    I knew that would cause discussion.

    It's both.

    I have experience with this. I have a lot of experience with this. -- Uncountable. A history of familiarity with something, a history of doing something.

    But...
    When I look back over my life, I realize I've had a lot if interesting experiences that would make a good book.
    We had a few interesting experiences on our trip, but it was great overall. -- Countable. Individual events where each one was "an experience."
