私 僕 俺...?
Greetings, could somebody please tell me what is the difference between 私, 僕 and 俺.
I know that all of them are supposed to mean "I", but, Is there any special condition to use any of them?

私 -わたし Is the general normal way to say I. I suggest you use this all the time
僕 Is only for boys and can make you seem immature (if you're an adult)
俺 is also exclusively use by men, but it's very informal and rude if you say it to someone older or of higher rank than you
私-わたくし quite formal, good for business Japanese
