I was watching a series “The Affair”, where a character said this, “You wanted to die rather than face yourself”.
This dialogue is making me question if what’s the difference between these three:
A. You wanted to die rather than face yourself.
B. You wanted to die rather than facing yourself.
C. You wanted to die rather than to face yourself.
As a native UK English speaker, I would say A seemed the most natural. The other two sound a bit “foreign” to me, but I can’t really explain why and I’m too busy to start analysing it.
