I wish I had taken a taxi.  I wish I hadn’t ridden there. I was so tired when I arrived.
The restaurant wasn’t very good. I wish I had suggested a better place to meet. 
It was really cold and I wish I had dressed better for the occasion. 
She told me she was romantic and I wish I had brought her some flowers. 
I wish I hadn’t eaten so much.  I felt really bloated afterwards. 
I was nervous and laughed too much and I wish I hadn’t.
Do you wish you hadn’t worn a tie?
I spilt some wine on her dress and of course I wish I hadn’t. 
I wish I hadn’t tried to kiss her at the end of the night.
I wish I had gone home earlier as I feel exhausted today.

Using were instead of was makes a sentence more formal e.g. I wish I were a little taller.

I wish I was rich. I wish I had a car and owned a house in a good neighbourhood.
I wish I went on holiday more often.
I wish I ate hot meals as I don't get the opportunity to do that now.
We wish he knew how to skate.
They wish they kept some animals as pets.

She wishes it would stop raining.
He wishes he could play in the natch next Saturday.
They wish they could go on a trip in March.
I wish he would decide what he wants to do.
I wish they would fall in love with each other.
Don't you wish your neighbours could be quiet during the evenings?
I wish he would buy me that ring.
