I’ve noticed most 日本人 on this app start their sentences with

“I want”.

I want to have a friend.
I want to call you.

This sounds a bit strong and well, we don’t really speak this way. Instead, we say “I’d like”.

I would like to have a friend.
I would like to call you.

A good comparison would be if I said:

すしがきらいです instead of saying すしがすきじゃないです

Hope this helps! By the way, すしがだいすきです 🙃

Pardon my beginner Japanese.

    I learned "I'd like" is polite way of "I want". Do you use "I'd like" to your close friends?

    Who uses “I want“? Kids? I use “I’m hoping to“ instead of “I want” by the way.

    @Yohei ヨウヘイ I use it sometimes with close friends and family but depends on the context.

    @Sayu It’s a bit childish :) but hey, I type everything in hiragana too like a 5 year old because I’m still very new to Japanese 😁
