With and to are very important prepositions in the English language. I know the usage of both prepositions but some points I become stuck with when should I use which preposition.

For example:

He is kind/good/generous to me.
He is kind/good/generous with me.

What is the difference between these two sentences?


Both sentences are correct and sound natural. The first sentence just involves you and him but in context, the last sentence can involve someone else as well, for example:

She is very lonely. He is kind/good/generous with me towards her.

This means that you are both kind/good/generous to the lonely girl.
