She sounds confident saying it.
Is this the official norwegian friendzone phrase?

In the arrrrmmsss of the annnglleee....
Fine, but she doesn't have to be so cheerful about it.
But, Duo, whyyyyyyyy ;(
mm watcha saaaay
Since it is "to be", why not say "å vaere" instead of "vaere" ?
Modal auxiliary verbs, such as "kan", "må", and "vil", are followed by a bare infinitive, i.e. an infinitive without the infinitive marker "å" ("to").
Why not "med være"? it's weird say "be to" ..
Relax man. Med means with. So literally it is "be with" (være med)
shot down! poor guy
Is the reason we don’t use “å være” here because of “vil”?
Yes, modal verbs are followed by a bare infinitive, i.e. an infinitive without the infinitive marker "å".
å være eller ikke å være, det er spørsmålet....
