I saw someone replying to a comment in this way on his Photo on Facebook:

Comment: Seems, in a good mood.
Reply(of that person): Seems, I do.

Does "I do" commensurate with "I am in good mood" Inferring from above comment, I wrote following sentences. Please guide me, Is this usage correct?

"I wanted to become a pilot, I still do"


"I had a passion for fishing. I still do"


Person 1 : Do you have a pen?

Person : Yes, I do.

Please explain its usage in a more better way if possible.

    We can't tell what the Comment refers to. Normally, one would say: It seems so/ in relation to some antecedent in the text. What comes before the comment? In any case: /Seems, in a good day/ is very poor English. Sorry. If I say: It seems like you study hard. Another person might say: It seems I do. In English, you can't have a verb like that without a subject. – Lambie Aug 9 '17 at 22:52
  • Oh Sorry, it was "Seems, in a good mood" I wrote day instead of mood unintentionally. – Saqeeb Aug 9 '17 at 22:57

    I repeat: what is the antecedent? The word seems is just hanging there. There is no way we can KNOW because it does not relate to anything. – Lambie Aug 9 '17 at 23:01
  • Seeing the photo(in which he was smiling) he commented "Seems, in a good mood". – Saqeeb Aug 9 '17 at 23:10
  • Frankly, it doesn't sounds like the person who typed "seems" twice is a fluent English speaker. – Adam Aug 9 '17 at 23:11
