01. I have wanted to meet you for so long. 02. I’ve wanted to see you for a long time. Typically, we wouldn’t put “long” in front of the subject and verb like that. Spoken in that way would be considered formal and poetic, meaning you could say. In the first sentence, you would want the duration of time at the end. In three and four, it would be ok to use long in the front but it would come across as formal.
