Can you proofread the following question (1) and statements about fine and okay?

1. Which preposition should I use in front of 'fine', to? or with?

2. The sentence/ arrangement is fine to me. OR The sentence / arrangement is fine with me.

3. The sentence / arrangement is OK to me. OR The sentence / arrangement if OK with me.

Hi,

I would write like this:

1. Which preposition should I use in front of the word (or adjective)'fine', to or with?

2. The sentence looks OK to me. Or

The sentence looks good to me.

3. Same as No. 2
That arrangement is fine with me.

(That arrangement looks good to me. That sounds good to me.)
Site Hint: Check out our list of pronunciation videos.
is/are/was/were fine/OK with me
looks / sounds / smells / seems fine/OK to me

Hi there,

It seems that either 'fine to me' or 'fine with me' are the same. And 'ok to me' and 'ok with me' are the same, too. Am I correct?

Did you read what CalifJim and I wrote?

Use "with" when you have forms of the verb "to be." It IS fine/OK with me.

Use "to" when you verbs like looks, seems, sounds, etc. It SOUND fine to me.

You can use either OK or fine, but the preposition will depend on the verb.
