    would want versus would like

    Helo again!

    What is the difference between "would like" and "would want"?

    I would like to go for a walk =? I would want to go for a walk.

    I would like you to do it =? I would want you to do it.

    Are the examples with "would want" acceptable to you?

    Thank you.

    Re: would want versus would like

    Only if there is an implicit condition involved.
