Which is correct? “I look forward to working with you” or “I look forward to work with you”?

“Look forward to” is usually followed by a gerund. That is, a word ending in “ing”- “working”, “meeting”and “eating”.

For example. * Priya looked forward to meeting Tendulkar. * Vimal is looking forward to going to Shimla.

  1. And what if we are starting the sentence with “Looking forward to….” ?
    Would that be followed by a gerund too?
    Is “Looking forward to working with you” correct ?

  2. “I look forward to working with Senator to build a …….” is correct.
    “I look forward to work with Senator to build a …….” is incorrect.
