1. Does the structure 'feel like doing sth' stand for a polite way of 'want' in AmE or it's British? For instance do you Americans possibly say:

  • I felt like swimming.

2. Do these sentences mean the same:

  • What would you like to drink?
  • What do you feel like drinking?

OR

  • Would you like some tea?
  • Do you feel like some tea?

I guess they should be the same and normal in AmE polite language. I was wondering if I thought properly.
