    I am hungry. Are you?

    Are both exchanges correct and natural?
    1) 'I'm hungry, and you?' 'Me too'
    2) 'I'm hungry. Are you?' 'Yes, me too.'
    If I were a native speaker of English, I would never shut up. :-)

    both are fine in casual conversation
    Experience is recognizing a mistake the second time you make it.
    You don't go to an Englishman when you want good pierogi.

    See above.

    In less casual conversation, I would expect:

    "I'm hungry. Are you?"
    "Yes, I am."
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
