    Default I've come to expect

    Hello.

    I have a sentence from the OALD,

    'I've come to expect this kind behavior from him' and in order to catch the meaning, I tried to rewrite it in a way that wouldn't change the sense and have got this,

    'I start expecting this kind behavior from him'.

    Could you please support my point or correct me if I am wrong.

    Thanks

    Alex.
