    For me neither / neither for me

    Can the answer "for me neither" in the following dialog

    - I won't be able to make it, besides Monday evenings is not a good time for me.
    - Well, for me neither.

    be replaced with "neither for me".

    Is this a mistake? Is it a serious mistake? (I used it and I was instantly corrected by a native English speaker).

    Thank you

    Re: For me neither / neither for me

    Welcome to the forum, falingo, and congratulations on giving your question a great title. Some seasoned posters have yet to get the hang of this.

    I'd say 'It's not a good time for me either'

    Re: For me neither / neither for me

    But if I wanted to avoid repeating 'It's not a good time..' and instead, give a short answer, could it be for me neither or neither for me?

    "For me neither" or "Nor for me". You'll also hear "Me neither" and "Nor me".
