    je suis perdu = I am lost (still lost)
    je me suis perdu = I got lost (probably safe now)

    Hi,

    both are correct

     

    It's more or less like that:
    I GOT LOST, I get into the wood and now I cannot find the way to go back home:
    Je ME SUIS PERDU, je suis rentré dans la forêt et je ne peux plus retrouver le chemin pour rentrer chez moi.

    I'M LOST! My boss told me to have this report ready for today and I haven't done it yet :

    JE SUIS PERDU. Mon chef m'a dit de finir le dossier pour aujourd'hui et je ne l'ai pas encore fait.
