  1. I am bored: I am currently feeling bored.

  2. I got bored: I became bored.

  3. I've got bored: I have gradually become bored, and I am currently feeling bored.

  4. I was bored: I was feeling bored earlier [and possibly I am no longer feeling bored].

  5. Same as 3.

  • I mostly agree except for #2 - that one is strictly about the past, and implies nothing about how you currently feel. – stangdon Mar 23 '17 at 18:04
  • @stangdon can you suggest me a better answer? I will definitely try to improve my answer on that basis... – AbhigyanC Mar 23 '17 at 18:07

    I would simply say "2: I got bored: I became bored." – stangdon Mar 23 '17 at 19:13
