Otras maneras de decir I DON’T CARE en inglés

Podemos usar estas expresiones cuando no tenemos preferencia sobre algo. Es siempre mejor decir estas expresiones antes que decir I don’t care.

pregunta respuesta
What do you want for dinner?
¿Que quieres para la cena?
Whatever you want.
Lo que tú quieras.
It doesn’t matter to me.
No me importa
Anything is fine.
Cualquier cosa está bien.

¿Quieres comida italiana o coreana para la cena?
Either one is fine.
Cualquiera está bien.

"I don't care" you can say instead "Whatever" but there are very few other ways in English without being more offensive. I wouldn't suggest using phrases like that often!

ALL of these are rude...but then, so is "I don't care." :D

  1. "Who gives a damn?" / "I don't give a damn."
  2. "That's great for you!" (sarcastic)
  3. "Am I supposed to care?"
  4. "Talk to the hand..."
  5. "Tell someone who cares."
  6. "You can go and shove it."
  7. "Go die."
  8. "Do I give a crap?"
  9. "I don't need a play-by-play." (from the movie 13 going on 30)
  10. "Eww TMI!!" (Too much information)

I couldn't care less es una muy buena expresión para indicar que a uno le importa un comino.

Helpful Duo, can you help me? I feel a subtle difference when using "mind" or "matter". I´ll try to express myself as clear as possible: when you ask for permission, in a polite way, you would say "do you mind if I..." smoke, for instance. And (hopefully for me!) the answer will be "I don´t mind".

I feel ( I insist with "feel", because I can´t find a better word), that "does it matter to you" sounds stronger. I can imagine someone saying "no matter" in the way we say "no hay problema"...just when the problem is right in front of us...

Am I too wrong??? Thanks a lot!
