Would rather with the same subject:
Example: I’d rather go for dinner. (used for the present and future)
Example: I’d rather not fly. I hate planes. (negative-use not in the would rather clause)
Example: She’d rather have spent the money on a vacation. (it means she didn’t spend the money on a vacation in the past).
To express a past preference, use the present perfect tense.
Would rather with a different subject:
Example: I’d rather you went for dinner. ( where I prefer you going for dinner)
Use a simple past tense when you prefer that someone else does something
Example: She’d rather you didn’t phone her after 10 pm. (negative)
Use the negative in the second clause and not in the would rather clause when you have two subjects in the sentence, even though you are talking about a present preference.
Example: I’d rather you hadn’t rung me at work. (past tense)
Use the past perfect tense when you say that you preferred someone else doing or not doing something in the past.
