You’re in the same situation as me / mine

Which one is correct?

“You’re in the same situation as me”

or

“You’re in the same situation as mine”

Example :

  • My sister always annoys me, although I tell my parents to stop her, she keeps doing it.

  • You’re in the same situation as me / mine

Answer

Since mine is a possessive, it would need to be matched with a possessive when used in same as. You could use it if you wrote

Your situation is the same as mine.

But if the element that same as refers to is a noun/pronoun, then you need to use a noun or pronoun as well to keep them consistent. So it should be

You’re in the same situation as me.
