    She just summoned me for dinner. use of for

    Hi,

    In the sentence, she just summoned me for dinner, can I exchange for with to?

    So, "she just summoned me to dinner" should be ok?

    Use of for and to is very confusing...

    Prepositions confuse all learners. Either of these work for me in this use.
