    too and either

    Hey,
    A while ago I learned the difference between too and either.

    P1: I like this song.
    P2: I like it too.

    P1: I don't like this song.
    P2: I don't like it either.


    What about this?:
    P1: I don't like this song.
    P1: Don't you like it too?

    Should I use either for the last sentence?

    Cheers!

    This sounds more natural to me:

    I like this song. Don't you like it, too?

    NOT A TEACHER.

    "Don't you like it too" doesn't sound right to me.

    "Do you not like it either" would be correct, but it doesn't sound great, either.

    I think most people would say something like, "How about you" or "Do you like it."

    I agree with Jasmin, and would add her second comment (which I have underlined) to, "Don't you like it, either", too.
