1. :?: Can I use the adverb yet in all the kinds of negative sentences? I mean, even if I'm not using the Present Perfect. For example: I'm not sure yet.

2. ;-) What's correct: "Let's stop talking about me." or "Let's stop talking about myself". I'm writing an essay where I need to talk about my routine, interests and after that, I need to know about the other person.

Thank you again for your wonderful work!

(1) Yes, although 'yet' and 'already' are more commonly associated with present perfect, they can appear in other forms. 'I don't think I will leave yet.'

(2) 'Let's stop talking about me' is correct. 'Let's' = 'let us', hence the reflexive if used must be 'let's stop talking about ourselves'.
