Hi sonia10,

Your trouble is understandable. Many native speakers use "I" and "me" incorrectly.

"I" is the subject form. "Me" is the object form.

Sometimes you can change a sentence to figure out what form to use:

"My boyfriend and I will be moving to NJ soon" is correct because "I will be moving to NJ soon" is correct.

"My boyfriend is more handsome than he" is correct since "my boyfriend is more handsome than he is" is correct and "my boyfriend is more handsome than him is" is incorrect.

However, many, many people say stuff like "you are taller/shorter than him". You should be aware that people commonly misuse objective pronouns like this. The correct way to say this is "you are taller/shorter than he". If that sounds strange, you could always just say "you are taller/shorter than he is".

The same logic can be followed for he/him and she/her.

Good luck.
