What does "but not like" mean? A native English speaker from the US said the dialogue below, but I didn't understand the meaning of the phrase "but like not". Does anyone know the meaning? "I'm not a fan of ice cream because it gives me a stomachache. I might kind of lactose intolerant, but like not."

but like not is uncommon slang. It means but not really or in this case but i'm not actually lactose intolerant. You'll probably only hear it in people aged 10-17

I am English and agree with Michael. 'but likely not' makes more sense to me

I am American and "but like not" does not make sense. :)
