    The expression, "Same here"

    Hello.

    I want to know if the expressin "Same here" can be used when we agree with someone's negative talk,
    For example, when my friend says, " I am not hungry.", is it possible if I respond with "Same here."?

    Thanks

    Yes, you can say that informally. . .

    . . .or 'neither am I'.

    In conversational "American":

    Mona: Let's just have dessert tonight. I'm not really hungry.

    Joe: Me neither.
