    Cool sweet

    Hello!

    Can we say this: "You're sweet to ask how I am." ?

    Cheers

    **Neither a teacher nor a native speaker.**

    Hmm, good question.
    I would write it this way:
    It's sweet that you ask how I am.

    Let's see what the others will say.

    Cheers!

    You can, and I've heard it before. However, I would be more likely to say "It's sweet of you to ask how I am".

    You could say that, but most people would say, "It's very nice of you to ask how I am."
