    Default to + gerund

    Is there any sentence in the universe with `to + gerund' other than `to + being'?

    I found only `to + being' in the Google search.

    Please let me know if there.

    e.g.:
    >object to -ing
    >looking forward to seeing/meeting you
    >devoted to -ing

    That are those I can think of at the moment...

    I'm not accustomed to waking up so early.

    He is used to seeing all his ideas ridiculed.

    We're resigned to eating the same tasteless food day after day.
