    Cool intention of /to

    Hello!

    Is there a difference between: to have the intention of doing something/to have the intention to do something?

    Thank you

    Re: intention of /to

    'I intend to go out later'.

    'I have the intention of going out later.'

    'It is my intention to go out later.'

    Thank you.

    So we never say:I have the intention to do something?

    I wouldn't say it, but I can't answer for everyone in the English-speaking world.
