    another to/for you/me question

    If refer to https://www.usingenglish.com/forum/t...nteresting-for.

    Did I get it correctly that if I am offering something to somebody or I am offered something I always use "to"?

    e.g.

    "... if anything in my trade-list is interesting to you ..."

    "... my offer is interesting to you ..."

    "... your offer is interesting to me ..."

    Re: another to/for you/me question

    ... and does the same rule hold for other words like boring, good/bad, expensive/cheap, right/wrong...

    These samples sound right to/for me:

    "Eating less is good for me."

    "He did something good/bad to me."

    "Does this sound expensive to you?"

    "What you say sounds right to me."

    And these sound strange:

    "Is this too expensive to you?"

    "What I said is still right for me."

    "What you said is still right to me."
