Couldnt wish and wait be the same? I answered, I dont wish to wait without you. But it was wrong.

    I don't think so, "wish" has different connotations to "want". My Esperanto dictionary gives "to wish" as "deziri".

    Mi ne pensas tiel, "wish" havas signifoj malsamaj ol "want". Mia vortaro Esperanta tradukas la verbon "wish" kiel "deziri".

    Exactly - desire vs volition. Longing vs intention.
