Hello everyone,

A Would you like to join us for dinner?
B: I'd like to.

How would B say when he doesn't like to join? "I don't want to" sounds impolite. Would you say "I'd like not to."?

Thanks in advance.

    "Oh, I wish I could, but I can't. Thanks for asking me. Let's do it some other time."
