“Between you and I” or “Between you and me”

Between you and me



“Let’s keep this between you and I.” [x]
“Let’s keep this between you and me.” [√]

Why? … Because between is a preposition and the pronouns following prepositions are always in the objective case which would be the pronoun me and not I.

Just between you and me, Julie is cheating on her husband.

Take a look at the use of prepositions with, to, from, and between with objective case:

She went with me. (She went with I.)

She went with Barry and me. (She went with Barry and I.)

Graham gave it to me. (Graham gave it to I.)

He wants to talk to you and me. (He wants to talk to you and I.)

This is from your mom and me. (This is from your mom and I.)

This is between Michelle and me. (This is between Michelle and I.)
