    We use it all the time!

    Do you feel like going to the movies? Do you feel like popcorn? Do you feel like riding your bike to the park? Do you feel like going to Italy this summer?

    It is more polite, but also used commonly and frequently.

    To children: Would you like some mustard to go with your hot dog?
    To you boss: Would you like the report on your desk by three?
