    僕(boku)and 俺(ore)means "I(私)". Both of them are used by men.
    I think 俺(ore)is very casual. So they use it when they talk with their friends, not with people who are older than them or formal way.
    僕(boku)is used by children or adult who talk with people who are older than them or they met for the first time.
    Boku is more formal than ore. But while they are working as a sellsman or talking in public, they should use 私(watashi).私is most formal.

    君(kimi)and お前(omae)means "you".
    君 is not so common I think. Sometimes people call someone who are yonger than them "君".
    お前 is used by most of men. When they talk to friends or girl friend.
    But some of people don't like being called "お前". So they use it to very close friend or when they are mad!

    僕⇒男性語、対等

    君⇒やや対等、目下

    俺⇒男性語、目下

    お前⇒目下※さん付けの場合は別の意味になるのでくれぐれも要注意。
