Yes, that's it -- I didn't like him, but I never articulated in just that way. Also, though Lizzy didn't like Mr. Darcy for awhile, I admired his restraint early on, both concerning Mr. Wickham and some of the remarks Lizzy made to him (Mr. Darcy). I thought he showed an easier going temperment than we are led to believe, in that he didn't hold her remarks against her. Rather, he put the blame on Wickham.
