Default Re: What verb forms fit well in the preposition, 'for'?

All of those examples are correct. For is used to describe a period of time, 6 seconds, 6 weeks, several months, the whole summer, etc.

This is in cotrast to the preposition since which is used to describe a point in time, for example, 6 months ago, last week, when I was a child.
