    He can prove a dangerous for me.

    Hi,

    Is "He can prove dangerous for me. Therefore, it is better for me not to talk to him" correct?

    Re: He can prove a dangerous for me.

    "He could prove dangerous ..." Otherwise it's acceptable. I'd use "to me", not "for me". He's a potential danger to you.

    Re: He can prove a dangerous for me.

    In the right context, "He can prove dangerous to me' would be possible.

    If you often did something involving the person or animal referred to as 'he', and on some occasions 'he' was dangerous, and on others 'he' wasn't, it would make sense.

    Maybe. If he has "proved" dangerous in the past, he needn't prove it again. I'd probably say, "He can be dangerous at times."

    Re: He can prove a dangerous for me.

    Did you notice that you wrote "a dangerous" in your title?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
