Can anyone tell me the difference between these words when you say :
I'm in a dilemma between A and B.
I'm torn between A and B.
Is there a difference in their collocations or formality or whatever.
I would appreciate your help. Tnx

    To me 'I'm in a dilemma between A and B' sounds unnatural. I would say 'I'm in (or caught in) a dilemma.' Then go on, in a new sentence, to explain what the dilemma is.

    Something like: 'I'm caught in a dilemma. I'm torn between A and B'.

    And please note, we spell 'thanks' as 'thanks' here, not 'Tnx'. :)
