Grammar Question: want or wanted?

Here are two sentences,

A) I did wanted to go but.... or

B) I did want to go but....

Which is correct? I think B is correct, but I noticed myself saying A awful lots! So.... do you guys also speak like I do?

    B is correct

    you used "did" (past tense), so the next verb should be in present tense

    Or you could just use "I wanted to go but..."

    B is correct. Wanted is in past and are often in the end or start of a text, where want is in presence. So I did Want to go but...

    B - but still a little awkward unless you're really stressing it by adding 'did.' The best way would simply be 'I wanted to go.'

    I did wanted to go? That hurted.

    參考資料: I make myself laugh.
