moi non plus

Moi non plus means “me neither” or “me either”.

You may recognize this phrase from Serge Gainsbourg and Jane Birkin’s notorious 1969 duet, Je t’aime…moi non plus (I love you…me neither). The seemingly contradictory phrase refers to a lack of spiritual/emotional love in an erotic relationship.

Non plus on its own means “neither”/”either” and you can see or hear it used in many other phrases – for instance, On ne va pas rester non plus (We’re not going to stay, either.)


  • Me neither
  • Me either
  • Nor I


  • Pas moi (Not me)
  • Moi aussi (Me, too – could be a synonym of Moi non plus if you’re agreeing with a negative statement (ex: – Je déteste les bananes. – Moi aussi. (“I hate bananas.” “Me, too.” )

Example sentence

– Je n’aime pas ces chips. – Moi non plus.

“I don’t like these chips/crisps.” “Me neither.”

Je ne sais pas conduire.Moi non plus.

“I don’t know how to drive.” “Me either.”
