Good morning. Do you please feel any nuance or difference between "I'd love to." or "I'd like to." or "I'd be happy to." or "It'd be my pleasure" in terms of meaning/formality? Can I use them interchangeably? If we take my example:

- Do you want to go with me to the movies?
- I'd love to./I'd like to./I'd be happy to./It'd be my pleasure.

Thank you in advance.

    Welcome to the forum, Inoy! :)

    If it's a friend who has asked, and you're enthusiastic about the suggestion, the reply that sounds natural to me is "I'd love to!"

    Thank you very much, Parla. Now that you mentioned it, can there be a nuance in the amount of enthusiasm perceived? Would you use a different one with your partner/family etc.?

    Thank you. So could this be a summary?

    - I'd love to. [enthusiastic]
    - I'd like to. [moderate]
    - Sure / Sounds good to me [casual]
    - I'd be happy to. / It would be my pleasure. [not very usual]
