Hola :)

Aprendí que usamos 'wish' con 'would' para acciones y cambios de otros y no para estados. No estoy segura de 'if only'.

1. Ojalá mi novio me comprara un regalo.
I wish my boyfriend would buy me a present.

2. Si tan solo mi novio me comprara un regalo.
If only my boyfriend would buy me a present.

¿La regla aplica a las dos estructuras?

Gracias :)

    The way the verb is conjugated after 'if only' depends on whether you are talking about the past, present or future. This site should help.
