Hello and thank you in advance for the answers.
Which of the following sentences is grammatically correct?
1. You're gonna regret that you told me about it.
2. You're gonna regret telling me about it.

    Well, the first point is that you need to write "going to" instead of "gonna", AnnAutumn.

    So the two sentences you're comparing are:
    1. You're going to regret that you told me about it.
    2. You're going to regret telling me about it.


    Both of these are grammatically correct.

    Both sound grammatically correct. Use "gonna" in dialog only. It is substandard English.

    Crossed posts with Loob, and it appears we agree.
