During a conversation between me and one of my friends, I was drunk and saying strange things.

  • He said "it happens"

I replied

  • It happens every time with me....

Which I guess means that in my case it happens every time.

And if I had said it happen to me every time, then that would mean that it causes something to me I guess.


So, What is the difference between happens with and happens to?

Your paraphrase in my case for with me there is good. to me means, as you say, that you have been affected by something.

"Happens with" means everything that has to do with a subject (in this case you):

What happens with me?

"Happens to" means everything that has to do with other situations among a subject (in this case you):

What is happening to me?
