More specifically, are "planning on visiting" and "planning to visit" interchangeable in the following sentence:

"I was planning on visiting you during your office hours next week but there was no list to sign up on outside your door."

If only one of the two options works, why?

  • There are lots of posts here about "to" (infinitive) versus "-ing" (gerund). Please go through related previous posts. Good Luck. – Kris Oct 12 '18 at 7:33
  • In that context, they are interchangeable. In general, plan on + Gerund means the same as plan + Infinitive; I can't think of a context where they're different. – John Lawler Oct 12 '18 at 13:19
