Well, I am an Asian who study English as a second language. My question arose because I wanted to translate from my own language. Suppose that I am pondering while walking on the street that I want to see someone, and suddenly I run into that someone. I think I might say something that translate to "Oh! I am wanting to see you. Such a nice timing!"
May I ask a few questions as follows:
- Among English speakers, is it usual to say it like this?
- Are there other alternatives which are more common.
- I guess "I've wanted to see you?" is OK too? I guess from the meaning of other usage I've found on this ELU question.
