    Welcome to the forum.

    Look at my corrections to your post. Remember that capitalisation and punctuation are very important in written English.

    "Want" is the bare infinitive of the verb "to want" and it is the present simple form for 5 of the 6 'persons'. "Wanted" is the simple past of the verb "to want" in all 6 'persons'.

    Simple Present:

    I want
    You want
    He/she/it wants
    We want
    You want
    They want

    Simple Past:

    I wanted
    You wanted
    He/she/it wanted
    We wanted
    You wanted
    They wanted

    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
