ago/for (in time expressions)
Please, how can I say, “I met her three years ago” and “I have known her for three years,” please?
These are basically two different ways of expressing the same idea.
Best Wishes and Many Thanks,

I agree with PinoyTaj. If you're goal is conversation, the first one PinoyTaj gave is too formal and mostly for literary use. It is awkward to hear in conversations. The second one PinoyTaj gave sounds better for conversations. 🙂🙂
