Student or Learner
--Would you join me for a quick lunch before class?
--_______, but I promised Nancy to go out with her.
The given answer is "I'd like to".
My question is: When I'm invited, are the following responses as good? Do native speakers have preferences?
1. I'd like to, thank you.
2. I'd like to, thanks.
3. I'd love to, thank you.
4. I'd love to, thanks.
(When I have to refuse the invitation):
5. I'd like to, but...
6. I'd love to, but...
Thank you very much in advance.

The same goes for the refusal.
Hope that helps.
