Ick (usually used as “the ick”) is a term that’s used to describe disgust or displeasure in something, especially when at first you thought you might enjoy it.

For example, “I was super pumped for my date, but he gave me the ick when he said he still lived at home,” or “I was feeling the vibe at the party, but the lack of cheese really gave me the ick, so I left.”
