    Hello, I was writing something in language exchange community and when I was going to write about what I'm interested in/on I wonder what is the particle use in or on:

    I'm interested on/in politics, cars, cats...
    I'm interested on/in picking him up on time.
    I'm only interested on/in you.

    And also, is it correct to soy: I was going to write about what I'm interested in/on

    Thanks!!

    I believe that "interested in" is more common by far.

    "To be interested in something" is correct usage.

    I have never heard anyone use "to be interested on something."

    I agree with thoozula, i don't think it's a question of one being more common but simply that "interested on" is incorrect.

    "I was going to write about what I am interested in" is fine - an alternative, and my preference (if only to avoid finishing with a preposition, which I know is an old-fashioned foible but to me it's tidier to avoid it if possible) is "I was going to write about what interests me".
