“Long for” se utiliza para expresar nostalgia o anhelo de algo (o por alguien) sin que signifique sufrimiento y “ache for” implica un sufrimiento o dolor por esa añoranza.

A continuación doy los significados y ejemplos tomados de varios diccionarios.

1. Long for = añorar, anhelar, ansiar

Long for someone or something: to desire or pine for someone or something: She is longing for her old friends. Walter longed for his hometown in the mountains.



2. To ache for = suspirar por algo Fig. to desire someone or something very much. (So much that it "hurts.") Jim ached for the sight of Mary, whom he loved deeply.

Ache for somebody/something to feel desire or regret about someone or something:

I ache for home, the smell of bread baking, rain hitting the porch roof - even the smell of the hen house.

We ache for the victims of war who have lost family, friends, and their homes.



Espero que te sirva de ayuda.
