    What's the difference between "when I'm around you" and "when I'm with you"?

    "For some reason, when I'm around you, I'm not, careful."


    Is there a difference between "when I'm around you" and "when I'm with you"? Thanks for your help.

    Either are acceptable (though the last comma should be taken out). There isn't much of a difference between the two, but "with you" implies a stronger connection. It is more intimate. However, I would use either in normal speech.

    When I'm around you, I feel happy. / When I'm with you, I feel happy.

    I'd probably say the first to a friend, and the second to a girlfriend or a very close friend.

    They're interchangeable in that sentence. Note that, with you can also express closeness, as in intimacy, as captal mentions in post #3.
