    It's nice of you to say.

    It's necessary for you to develop something.- is obviously natural and 'for you it is necessary to develop something' is also correct.

    I was wondering how about 'it's nice of you to say' and other sentences including 'for'

    could you comment which one is correct or natural and which one is bad or unatural?



    1. For us it's good.

    2. OF you it's nice to say.





    And in the sentence 'it's nice to meet you.', which one is omitted between 'of me' or 'for me'?

    and if 'for me' is the correct one in that sentence, is it natural saying " for me it's nice to meet you?"




    Thanks ^^

    They don't mean the same thing.
