Toward or Towards the Future?


Toward/Towards    You know how when you speak a language some things just sound right but you don’t know why they are right?  I was just editing a document for a coworker. (Yes, I am aware of the irony!)  She included a sentence: I am looking toward the future.  I circled it and put an “s” on the end.  She asked me why and I really don’t know.  To me, I am looking towards the future sounds right and looking toward the future sounds wrong.  We asked the another coworker (native English) and she said towards is right, but she couldn’t tell us why either!

The future is indefinite. That is why adding an 's' sounds right. I don't speak English that often but I think your are right.
