Either option works for me

Either option works for me

How to pronounce either, neither and words with

• Either denotes ‘both’ or ‘one,’ while neither denotes ‘not either’ or ‘zero.’ In negative constructions, either can be used, but none can be used in affirmative constructions. – I’m out of money. So, how about you? – I don’t have any cash on hand. Do you happen to have any?
• In affirmative sentences, either…Or (‘one or another’) is used to give a choice between two possibilities or to convey a cause-and-effect relationship:
I can make you a hot chocolate or a chilled bottle of white wine. Hot chocolate or chilled white wine are both options. I’ll take you to court if you don’t tell me what you know. You have two choices: either tell me what you know or go to court with me. • In negative constructions, neither…nor (‘not this one nor that one’) is used: I’m sorry, but I don’t have the time or energy to listen to your stories. I’m sorry, but I don’t have the time or energy to listen to your stories. Neither the one nor the other is true. Neither this one nor the other. When used alone, either and neither can mean ‘one or the other,’ ‘whichever of the two,’ ‘not this one and not the other,’ or ‘not one of the two,’ for example: In both sides of the channel, there are warships. In both sides of the channel, there are boats. Neither of my daughters is in a relationship. My (two) daughters have both married. I have the choice of staying or leaving. In any case, I’ll be happy. I have the choice of staying or leaving. Whichever choice I choose, I’ll be content. Remember that neither Kevin nor Philip is gay and neither is conjugated in the singular. Kevin is not a homosexual. Philip isn’t gay, either. Neither of us has to work the next day. I don’t have to go to work the next day. You’re still not expected to operate the next day.

Using ‘either or’ & ‘neither nor’ – correlative conjunctions

The English language is full of funny little rules that can make understanding it a little challenging. The distinction between neither and either will be explained in this post. Two words with identical sounds but distinct meanings.
Take a look at the meanings of the terms first. That should clear things up a little bit. To begin with, neither word has a negative connotation. It also doesn’t mean anything. This can seem confusing, but keep in mind that neither is often described as none of. The meaning in the dictionary is neither one nor the other. “Neither of the children was well behaved,” for example. That is to say, none of the two children was well-behaved. “Which one would you like to do?” Neither is good; both are bad.” In other terms, neither choice appeals to me.
Moving on, let’s take a look at the term either. When referring to a preference between two alternatives, the term either is used. “Either one deserves to win,” for example. “Either you leave or I’ll call the cops,” for example. It can also be substituted for the words also or too in a negative context. If you’re familiar with these terms, you can almost always substitute one for the other and the meaning will be the same. “I haven’t been there either,” for example. “This dress, too, does not suit me.”

I am not a “cyclist” (and most dutch people aren’t either

If there is a good reason to use the future, use the present tense in this situation. In general, whether or not the days “work” is in the present; if they don’t work with your current plans, they’re unlikely to work next week, at least not in a way that you can comfortably convey now.
When you mean “one or the other,” “one” is a better option than “both.” “Would” is a polite expression that can be used to convey a possibility or a tentative condition. “Either day works for me” is perfect if you don’t need to be respectful or cautious.
