Is it OK to say, “Me neither”

Grammarians would frown at such a sentence. When somebody says, “I don’t want to get married” and you agree with him/her, you are expected to reply, “Neither do I.” It is also possible for you to say, “I don’t either.” “Me neither” would be considered ungrammatical. Native speakers of English, however, do use “Me neither” in informal contexts. You can probably get away with it in speech, but not in writing.
