English prepositions – When to use ‘FOR’ in natural conversation

In English we use the preposition FOR when we wait

“I’m waiting for the bus. It’s late today.”

“Whenever I go out with my wife I have to wait for her to get ready! She seems to take forever!”

We also use FOR with the verb look if we are trying to find someone/something…

“I’ve been looking for Scott all morning. Have you seen him today?”

“Those new furniture ‘Super’ stores are too big! I went to one on Sunday to look for a new couch and I got lost in the store!”
