    Question about "So do I"

    Hello,

    If someone told me: "I have no desire to do anything", and I want to agree with her, should I say: "Neither do I" ?

    Thanks.

    "So do I" to agree with an affirmative statement. "Neither do I" to agree with a negative statement.

    And, "I have no desire to do anything" is a negative statement.
