You won't like everyone you meet. In fact, you probably won't like most people you meet. While snap judgments aren't always accurate and rarely fair, taking a dislike to others is an unavoidable life problem that can lead to some boring, awkward or uncomfortable conversations.

To get out of them faster, Boston.com writer Jennifer Spencer suggests you just need to listen:
If you've already made a decision you don't like this person, don't replay that negativity in your head. Concentrate on the substance of what he or she is saying and engage in the topic or task rather than the messenger. By focusing on the other person you may find more direct ways to share information which in turn means you can get away from them sooner.
Along with this tip, Jennifer offers a bunch of other suggestions for communicating with people you don't like. Among them is an important reminder: you might actually like them despite your snap judgment, so be open-minded. The above tip can help you do that too. Most people are pretty cool, and you not liking them isn not a good reason to be rude. Hit up the full post at Boston.com for more.
