I'm learning English.I can understand the sentence,"I don't want you to have a relationship with her." But I can't get these sentences grammatically.
1)He didn't want me near you.
2) He wants you around.
3)I don't want it back.
Is 1) a shortened form of "He didn't want me to be near you"?How about 2) and 3)?
