I wonder if "to" is needed.

Hello shan
Yes, it can be used with or without "to".
There are some examples in the Cambridge Dictionaries Online on the right of this page you might like to see: Type in help, click Look it up! and then choose "help verb MAKE EASIER".
I hope this helps

Hello!
I have a puzzle about grammar like this : "it’s like you live here or something.." Is the "like" a preposition in this sentence?  Why cann't I speak "it's like you living here or something.." Are there any differences ? 
Pls help me..
 
oh! I see.It is elliptical sentence..isn't it? "it's like that you live here or something..?"  but why did I  have the puzzle like that?  About analysing the parts of the sentence..

Hello qiang

Yes, you can say both: It's like you live here or something! and It's like you are living here or something!

We use like or as if followed by a clause to compare a real situation (you are not actually living here) with an imaginary one (you could be living here).

Like is often used in everyday conversation and it is more informal than as if, and some people think it is incorrect.

You can find some examples in the Cambridge Dictionaries Online on the right of this page. Type like in the box, click on Look it up! and then choose "like preposition/conjunction AS IF"

Does this answer your questions?

I hope it helps
