    went out for 10 years/have been going out for 10 years

    Hi everyone,

    Is my interpretation of these sentences correct?

    "I went out with her for 10 years." (we don't go out any more)

    "I have been going out with her for 10 years." (we still go out)

    Thank you.

    Yes.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
