    used to / be used to / get used to

    • David used to live in Madrid.
    • I'm used to living alone.
    • I got used to living in Canada in spite of the cold weather.


    How we know the word after 'used to'/'be used to'/'get used to' is simple present or simple present continuous? Isn't simple present continuous will be used if the sentence has shown that the action is happening at the moment? Otherwise, simple present will be used when the action happens in the past time. Thanks in advances.
