Please tell me is there is any difference between these two, and the correct usage of them.

'fine with' vs 'fine for' #469

I believe the difference between these is the following:

You (or another person) can be fine with something like a plan, an idea, a situation. For example: "I'm with with John's plan to reduce overtime payments." And: "We're both fine with the arrangements you've made for the Christmas party."

Whereas, something can be fine for something else. For example: "This simple contract is fine for the time being. We can always edit it later." And: The design on the packaging is fine for this type of product."

Does this answer your question? Hope so.
