    Me too

    Hello,
    We all know "me too".
    He: I really like this move.
    I: Me too.


    Why isn't it just:
    I too.


    To me it sounds a bit like:
    He really likes this movie and me too.
    (If you don't say, "I too".)

    Is this a typical I/me confusion?
    Like:
    He loves you more than I. -> I don't love you as much as he does.
    He loves you more than me. -> He doesn't love me as much he loves you.
    (I know it has nothing to do with "me too" but with I/me )

    Cheers!

    Re: Me too

    Hi, Nightmare.

    There have been numerous threads about this issue (,which as an old member you may remember very well) , and I thought that it came to an agreement between the members.

    As for your examples.

    He: I really like this move.
    I: I( like it) too.

    Yes, it should be "I" but it's a good chance that you'll hear the most native-speakers using "me"

    He really likes this movie and, me too.

    Without the comma he likes the movie and he likes you as well. :)

    With the comma, you should say "I (like it), too.

    He loves you more than I (do). As you see it's short for I do, so it should be "I".

    Re: Me too

    Thank you for your answer, euncu.
    I'm sorry for the late reply, but I was on vacation and I did not know what to respond anyway.

    Some days ago I thought about this topic again.
    What do you think about this explanation?
    Person 1: He likes me.
    Person 2: He likes me(,) too. -> Me(,) too.

    Person 1: I like him.
    Person 2: I like him(,) too. -> I(,) too.

    I think this is a clear example, so I cannot understand why so many humans insist on "me"

    Cheers!
