    get involved in/ get involved with

    Hello!

    Is there a difference between "get involved in" and " get involved with"?

    Yes, there could well be!
    Can you give us some sentences/contexts to work with?

    Quoting from Longman dictionary:

    "I don’t want to get involved in some lengthy argument about who is to blame."


    "Landel has been involved with the Hercules project for years."

    You cannot use "with" instead of "in" in that sentence.

    You can use either "with" or "in" in that sentence.

    So, it's just about feeling what sounds better?

    No. The use of prepositions is complex and not easy to learn/memorize. However, with continued exposure (reading and listening) to natural English, you'll get better at it.

    You're welcome. Note that emoticons go after punctuation marks.
