Not really dislike, but I'm tired of her crap and pretty much for the reasons Miku mentioned in ep9.
Other than that I don't think she really was into Hiro or Goro. The flashback pretty much confirms that what she really does is: she takes care of the weaklings. Is it from responsibility, instinct or affection. She always looks out for the weakest, which I guess is an admirable trait on it's own, but if you couple it with someone in a leading role it will make them to fragile to make hard decisions.
She helps Goro, because he is a weakling.
She admires Hiro, but it is comparable to what other children felt towards Hiro. Don't think it was romantic at all. (That might have changed after the kiss, though) When Hiro was down then She came to his side to help him, She slapped 02 when she suggested a weak Hiro dosen't mean anything to her, because she always wants to protect the weak.
Her affection towards Ikuno is of the same sort, she want's to help her because she seems the weakest with connecting.
