I miss nothing?
How would you say I miss nothing? Je ne manque rien? Thanks.
This relates to:Manquer (de) + thing = To miss / lack something -

As a native USA speaker, when I hear “I miss nothing” I understand that to mean “Nothing escapes my notice... I miss no detail... nothing gets by me”. The french phrase “Je ne manque rien” makes sense to me in this context
However “I lack nothing” is very different and means “I have everything I need”. Here I would use “Je ne manque de rien”
Would a french native weigh in on that please?
