Mensagem:  Since I started learning English (one thousand years ago), my teachers have told me that there are some verbs that do not accept the -ing ending. So, we don't say "I am thinking ..." or "I am wanting ...", we should say "I think ..." or "I want ...". But, the other day, I saw these verbs used just like that, in the gerund. Where? I don't remember. So, be patient with me, and help me.
