Or perhaps she didn't like it at all, but was trying to influence him to stop. JKR did tell us that it was his attraction to the Dark Arts that Lily didn't like. And had he not been so inclined, Lily might (and this is a conditional what if) have been attracted to him romantically.

We do know he created a dark curse, Sectumsempra, so he was actively dabbling. Snape, himself, called it Dark Magic. And we were told in DH that George's ear wouldn't heal because it was a Dark Curse.
