    Re: sorry about sorry for

    I am not a teacher of English neither a native speaker.

    To be sorry for means to feel pity toward someone. Example: I feel sorry for whoever marries him! I am sorry for your loss.
    To be sorry about means an apology and is used in the informal, casual situations. For example, earlier this afternoon I was in a restaurant and happened to be seated at the filthy table. A waitress cleaned it up and said, "I am sorry about that."
