I have a small question regarding the usage of the present simple, present continuous and auxiliary verbs. Is this correct English?
- Feel safe? (Do you feel safe?) → So do I!
- Feeling safe? (Are you feeling safe?) → So am I!
- Feeling safe? So do I!
In this particular case (3), a question is asked in present continuous and gets answered in simple present. The addressee is making a (powerful) statement that the he/she 'always' or 'infinitively' feels safe, not just actively at this moment.
I'm not a native English speaker, but I was under the impression that this is a perfectly accepted exception to the general rules of English language. Can anyone confirm this or explain why this is not acceptable?
Edit: The actual phrase in question is "Feeling ambitious? So do we", which is a phrase I made up myself. I replaced it with 'feeling safe' to present a more neutral case.
