Not sure why "who waits for me" is not accepted?

If somebody is waiting for you, isn't he-she not waiting right now? Specially in this question. I can see :She waits for me: (every Monday after work) . When would you use a simple present?

Much as the continuous form is much more common in casual speech, the simple form is entirely correct and has a slightly more literary feel to it in many circumstances. I also think it should be accepted.

Why is "kdo na mne čeká" not correct, please ?

I THINK your version also should be acceptable, unless your original sentence had something else in it that DL didn't like. But if you get this exercise again and "kdo na mne čeká" is rejected, you might want to use the Report button. It may be an overlooked alternative.

Like every day? Or continuously? In some romantic sense?

I will add it.

There is the word "chci" among English words in the word bank. Not among the hints :-).

These words are not hints. Hints are the translations that appear when you hover over the words of the sentence you should translate. You may think I am just insisting on unimportant words, but I am not. When people report there is something wrong with "hints" we must know what hints are.

So the words you see are not hints, they are the words in the word bank. We do not control these in any way. Duolingo just chooses some words automatically and to some extent randomly. It is not worth to report these. Certainly not to us.

Thanks for information. I will not report it more. However it is strange to mix the languages in one word bank.
