It's followed by (verb)ing and often used in negatives and questions. For example: Do you mind opening the window? Sam: No, I don't mind. Dan: If someone says 'I don't mind', it means that they have no preference or that they are happy for something to happen. However, the verb 'matter' in English can mean 'be important'. 'English matters,' means 'English is important'. If we say 'it doesn't matter', it means that the thing that we are talking about is not important or not significant. Do you want tea or coffee? Sam: It doesn't matter. Dan: OK! Sometimes they can both mean the same thing. Sam: Do you want chicken for dinner? Dan: I don't mind! Sam: Do you want chicken for dinner? Dan: It doesn't matter to me.
