对我来说 is a set expression which as a meaning as just that. You can not separate the words. If you study Chinese grammar you will find many constructions like that.

对我来说 (as far as I'm concerned, as for me...) in different from 认为 or 觉得 as it  only can convey the speakers opinion (or maybe what is generally believed). 认为 or 觉得 can also be used when expressing the opinion of the person spoken about.

sorry, there is an h missing in the text above should be: a set expression which has a meaning as just that.

But 对他来说 or 对 name 来说 is also used.

a set expression which as a meaning as just that.
a set expression which as a meaning as just that.

"对我来说" is a set phrase.you can not use "对我说" instead.

we never use  "对我说" alone.It doesn't have any meaning.Here's some example using "对我说":

1.小王对我说:“请帮我把水杯拿来”

2.他什么都没对我说

you can see that "对我说" means "tell me"

对我来说 means 'in my perspective' or 'from my standpoint' .

e.g

今天汽油的价格又下调了,但是对我来说毫无意义,因为我不开车。

 

Want more help for free ? You can add me in your contacts on skype. My skype name is 'bg6rrn'.

We can translate '对我来说' as 'to me ', so you can think of  '来' as 'to' .

对我说    只是表明了说话所针对的对象是我,而  对我来说 强调的是 从'我'的角度进行的回答。

 

今天汽油的价格又下调了,但是对我来说毫无意义,因为我不开车。

若改为:

今天汽油的价格又下调了,但是对我说毫无意义,因为我不开车。

就不是很好理解了,因为没有谁对谁说话。

对我说---said to me
