Since or Because (explanation)
Ok, I have a really good question. I was just trying to write an important letter and I want to explain my situation. “I did not respond to your email since I was out of town on Sunday.” My boyfriend says that it should be because I was out of town, but I think since sounds more formal. Since also indicates a time aspect in my mind. When you answer this, please tell me if I should place since at the beginning. Example: “Since I was out of town on Sunday, I couldn’t answer your email.” I want to sound most professional that I can because this letter is so important. It is for something legal. Thank you for your help.
