dislike not like
If you dislike someone or something, you find them unpleasant.
In conversation and in less formal writing, you don't normally use 'dislike'. Instead, you use a negative word with like.
You can say that someone dislikes doing something or doesn't like doing something.
You can also say that someone doesn't like to do something.
However, don't say that someone 'dislikes to do' something.
