    I'm bored

    "I'm bored for talking with you"
    or
    "I'm bored of you"
    or
    "I'm bored for you"
    or
    "I'm bored of talking with you
    Which one is right? Or it might be this:

    "I'm bored because of you"

    Re: I'm bored

    What about "You are boring me."?
    Not a teacher.
    Please, show me every single one of my mistakes. Thank you.

    Re: I'm bored

    Did you take all of those from another site/page? They all appear in quote boxes suggesting that you didn't just write them yourself.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    No, I was thinking 'bored' could be used as like 'scared' with some prepositions

    Re: I'm bored

    I understand your question, I just can't work out why each sentence shows up inside a "quote" box. That is what happens when you choose to quote someone else's words from this forum.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Thanks for telling me. I won't use quote box unless for other people's words

    Re: I'm bored

    My favorite:

    "I'm bored because of you"

    Blame somebody else for being bored.
