    Re: Sentence

    Really! I thought you liked it.
    <I was fairly sure that you liked wine.>

    Really! I thought you like it.

    Really! I thought you might like it.
    <I wasn't sure if you liked wine or not, but I thought there was a good chance that you might because; e.g., you drink alcohol.>

    By the way, the second one is ungrammatical (I wasn't able to edit my first post to tell you that).
