lack of like

I always feel like an unreasonable bitch when there's someone who's perfectly nice and I don't like them anyway. Maybe there's some character trait that rubs me the wrong way or a quirk, or just that there's something annoying about them, but not that they're a bad person or anything objective that I can point to and say, "Look, see? Jerky! QED!" It's very unsatisfying.
