    Exclamation Would you like to come?

    Hello everyone,
    Would you please tell me the difference between these two sentences?

    1)Do you like to come?
    2)Would you like to come?

    Thanks in advance,

    it is a good question ... I really want to know the difference!

    well, I didn't & I don't think there is a different b/ them... except that the second one is more polite than the first one..... I guess

    The only difference is that the latter is more formal

    There is a difference:
    Do you like to come? = you've visited it a few times and I want to know if you enjoy it
    Would you like to come? = an invitation (polite)
