Assunto:  Re: Me neither; either
 
Mensagem:  Me either or Me neither are usually replies to someone who's afirming something, for instance: If one says "I love swimming" you would say "me either" In the case of a negative statement for instance "I don't like swimming" you would have to say "neither do I" or "Me neither". In fact it's very much alike to Portuguese, that is normally if one says "Adoro nadar" you'd reply "também eu", e se "Não gosto de nadar" you'd answer "nem eu". However in Portuguese both sound quite allright but in English I guess it's not grammaticaly correct to reply positively if the statement it's negative. Did I make myself clear? I hope I haven't been too confusing...
