I have a tiny question. If I want to say "I thought about her", should I use:
a) Je lui ai pensée
b) J'ai pensé à lui
c) J'ai pensé à elle
Because I notice that for verb + de, we can use "penser d'elle" (think of her), so for the case verb + à, can we use à + pronouns as well (option b,c)? Can we use "elle" instead of "lui" for such case? Finally, can we use option b) instead of a)?
This is the only correct construction to express "I thought about her"
Penser is a tricky verb to use correctly -- "penser de" expresses an opinion.
Whereas "penser à" expresses a thought process (as in thinking about a special friend when you are not together at a given moment.)
