Assunto:  Like to do sth vs like doing sth
 
Mensagem:  The more I study, the less I seem to grasp it...

Anyway, I found the info clarifying. Does anyone have any further comments on it?


"LIKE TO DO STH. VS. LIKE DOING STH."


INFINITIVE= you like something because you consider it is good for you

"I like to go to the dentist once a year."
"We like to wash up as soon as we finish eating. Then we can sit and relax"

(I don't think people in general enjoy going to the dentist or washing up)

GERUND= you simply enjoy this activity

"I like singing in the shower."
