    feel Do vs feel DOING

    What's the difference between "feel do" (bare infinitive) and "feel doing" (gerund)?

    I'm confused what I'm reciting the verb patterns table.

    I don't use either- I would say feel like doing.

    Like Tdol, I assume you're getting confused with "feel like doing". If not, then please use the phrases you quoted in a sentence and post them here so that we can see the context in which you think either can be used.

    Sorry, I don't have any example because I just saw "feel + gerund" in my verb pattern table. And I'm confused.
