People often use "I feel ya", when texting in English. What can I say in Esperanto?

I guess "Mi komprenas" or "Mi kompatas vin" are options. Is there something more "laidback"?

    Does the fact you are using ya mean you are asking for an informal/slang way of saying that? – kiamlaluno Oct 8 '16 at 12:15
  • Yes, the slang-part is intended. – Antonia Montaro Oct 9 '16 at 16:17

I would text Kunsente. I tend to use adverbs for single-word sentences. In the list I have included the -at-, -it-, but they feel a bit fussy to me. Other people should have a wider range of suggestions.

  • Prave — Truly
  • Certe — Certainly
  • Konsent(it)e — Agreed
  • Kunsent(at)e — I feel ya
  • Kompren(it)e — Understood
  • Kompaton/Kompate — Sorry to hear that
  • Ĉiam tiel — Always the way

To my friends I have sometimes said "mi sentas same" = I feel the same. "mi komprenas" is probably something else I have said or would say (probably if I don't actually feel the same, but I get where they're coming from).

I use "same mi" a lot, but I don't think I use it in the sense "I feel ya" is meant. But if one wants to say "mi sentas same", an abbreviation of that is better in tis context. I use it to say "I feel the same", but I think it's broadly applicable.
