    Which one is correct or used more often?

    1 Do something if you want
    2 Do something if you want to

    I am leaning toward the first one. What would native speakers choose?

    thanks

    It depends- the second might sound better if I didn't want them to do it, otherwise I'd probably head for the first as it's shorter.
