    Re: What are the things you are looking forward to doing?

    Both sentences are grammatically correct.

    Is there a reason you included "doing" in the first but omitted it in the second?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I thought that it "Forward to" should be followed by "being" as I have noticed so far. So it is not compulsory I wasn't sure of it but now I am.

    If you were querying whether "look forward to" has to be followed by "verb+ing", you should have given us two sentences in which the only difference was the inclusion/omission of "verb+ing". It would have been clear what you were asking if your post had looked like this:

    1. What are you looking forward to?
    2. What are you looking forward to doing?

    Do I need to use "verb+ing" after "looking forward to"?
