I'm tired of waiting for you.

I'm tired of wait for you.

     After preposition you don´t use the base form of the verb "wait", but you add ING, right as Aman just have pointed out.

  It/he/she seems to be dying.

  They seem to be dying.

  My pigeon seems dying.

 

 

 

"
-My car seems to be dying everytime I dont drive it for a few days.

-I would check to see if any of your lights are staying on.

 

The next day...

-Oh, you were right, it was the lights that were draining the battery! Oh I am such an airhead! "

 

 

 

 

      So, "seems dying"   it´s not the usual, Aman.   You need a subjet in the phrase (He/she/it/they etc...) along with SEEMS.
