Looking Forward to Some Grammar?

I often hear people say, “I look forward to meet you” when they ought to say, “I look forward to meeting you” if they want to be grammatically correct.

Imagine you get an email saying, “Can’t wait for our chat next week! I look forward to meet you.

Now, it’s super clear they’re excited, but the grammar’s gone a bit haywire.

It’s like wearing mismatched socks to a fancy dinner. It’s not a big deal! It just stands out. smile

Swap that “meet” with “meeting” and voilà!:

Can’t wait for our chat next week! I look forward to meeting you.

Or even: “Can’t wait for our chat next week! I’m looking forward to meeting you.“*

* In practice, both phrases are widely used and the difference is subtle. The choice between them often comes down to personal preference and the tone you want to convey in your message.

And here a quick reminder:
