    If it's subject:
    Cherish and I went to the cinema.
    If it's object:
    He saw me and Cherish.

    Re: Using I or me

    I always think about it like this:

    If the other person was not present in the sentence, what would you say?

    To use Tdol's examples:

    If it's subject:
    Cherish and I went to the cinema.

    If Cherish wasn't there, you would say 'I went to the cinema', not 'me went to the cinema'

    If it's object:
    He saw me and Cherish.

    If Cherish wasn't there you would say 'He saw me', not 'He saw I'.
