I’m used to +ing

Something was difficult to do before, but now it is not.

Getting up in the morning very early was difficult.

Then I got used to it.

Now I’m used to waking up early in the morning.

We can use this form to explain something was difficult before and is still difficult now.

It’s very difficult to wake up early in the morning. I’m not used to it.

I’m just not used to it  (I am not happy about this)

I’m still not used to it  (I expected to be, before now, and I am not happy about this, frustrated)

I didn’t get used to it  (I stopped trying)

I couldn’t get used to it  (I was unable)

We can use the form to talk about the future when the difficulty may change

I’m not used to it yet  (I hope to be, in the future)

I could get used to it  (possible in the future)

I haven’t got used to it yet  (consequence in the present, can be used as an apology).

I will get used to it  (confidence in the future)



Did you get used to waking up early?

Have you got used to it yet?

Are you used to it?


The Square Gate is a component in the joystick that allows players to find their diagonals more easily, especially for charge characters like Guile, Meitenkun etc.

Some players prefer the octagonal because they can feel the sides of the gate.

There are other reasons.


Square Gate octogate

I wasn’t used to octogate but now I love it!

What, are you crazy? Squaregate is the best!  I tried octogate but I just couldn’t get used to it.
