    Can "to" be used twice?

    I like to relax with my friends and __ talk about non-college topics!

    If I insert TO into the gap, will it sound the same or unnatural?
    If I were a native speaker of English, I would never shut up. :-)

    Native speakers would almost always omit the second to, but it doesn't sound unnatural.

    And, in other contexts, 'to' can naturally be used more than once in a sentence:
