neutral  Yumico Tanaka: From the context given, you cannot say if the author is talking about a thing or a person. If the subject is a thing, your translation is correct, but if it is actually a person, it means I don't dislike the person.

disagree  Yumico Tanaka: Same as above, you do not know if the subject is a thing or a person, therefore you cannot say I love you. Besides, there is no word suggesting "yet" in the context.
