Yes, of course you can.

Liking entails an emotional involvement and is something that can change over time.

I hate going to the gym in the summer, for example, but I absolutely like it in the winter.

Another thing you may do: like and dislike something or someone at the same time.

"I like her because she's my childhood friend, but I don't like her in the sense that she steals."

So in that example, you're comparing two feelings, both liking and disliking.

Is that what you're asking, or am I misunderstanding?
