"You are Hamlet" - What does this mean?

Well, I was told "You're Hamlet to me." and I don't have any idea in detail.
I know that it's one of Shakespeare's tragedies. I don't want to read character analysis as I want to read whole thing at some point.
So could you please tell what was he like? No spoilers please.
Now I understood one of typos made by my friend.
I suppose she meant "You're Hamlet to my Ophelia". Thanks @Laura_Marx for pointing that out.

  • how did that conversation go after you said that? because my instinctive response would be to say, 'what do you mean?', but I guess you didn't say that, since you're here.

    Who told you that? Was it the ghost of your dead father? Or, indeed, the skull of your deceased friend?

    • Have you seen david tennants portrayal of hamlet?
