    I don't know. I would say "It's really boring". The "to / for me" is implied.

    On the other hand, I would say "It's too boring for my taste".

    It's a bit milder to say that something is boring to/for you, though in general I agree.

    "I don't like football, it's boring."
    "No it's not!"
    "Well, for/to me it is."

    I don't think there's any difference in that context.

    What's the difference between: "it's really boring to me" or "it's really boring for me"?
    I agree with SwissPete's usage. I've heard both of the above expressions in conversation, though. I'm not sure the latter is INcorrect (it sounds a little off), but the former "it's really boring to me" is certainly grammatical.

    And for me or to me, the meaning remains the same.
