Hi, could you help me for this silly question. Just look at these following instance.
- I don't object to working this Sunday.
- I'm looking forward to seeing him again.
- I'm used to working long hours.
And the question is why we can use V-ing after to. In my restrictive knowledge, I just know that we just only use to + bare infinitive for this structure.
In all of your examples, the gerund is being used as a noun, plus those verbs have to take the preposition "to" to mean anything. That is why you can use to + gerund.
