Like does not mean love..
Dislike does not mean hate..
But love definitely like, and hate confirms dislike..
When you love, you will care.
When you care, you might love.
But 'feelings' are too complex to be discussed, can cross each other and two opposite emotions often co-exist together..
# If you keep thinking about something or can't get it out of your head, the reason can either be like or dislike..-which is more distressing? -D
# Trying to dismiss unacceptable hatred, nurture unconditional love..-)
