''You must always use the to-infinitive with the expressions 'would love to', 'would hate to', etc.''
''I would love to dance with you''.
Gerund or Infinitive: Selecting the correct one in English grammar
- If I were you, I wouldn't hate watching a movie with her.
My question is can we use 'ing' after 'would like, would hate, would love' in an 'if clause sentence'? My opinion is that it seems OK but not sure.
"Would love" and "would hate" can be followed by either the to-infinitive or the gerund depending on the context.
Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
