    go/come

    I wonder if there is a suble difference between "1" and "2".
    1. I want you to go with me.
    2. I want you to come with me.

    Re: go/come

    Hi, wowenglish1. I like your question because I'm often puzzled by the same question.
    I'd like to copy some sentences taken from Oxford and hope our great teachers here can help us:

    Even if we could go, which is highly doubtful, John wouldn't be able to come with us.
    If you're all going to the party, you can count me in, ie I will come with you.
    I don't want to come with you today.
    We're going to the cinema tonight. Do you want to come with us?

    Thank you very much.
