Hate is not as simple either
I was thinking about Hatred. Is it really the opposite of Love? Wouldn't the opposite of Love be No-Love (an absence of love)? But Hate is not No-Love. It is "to feel hostility or animosity toward," which isn't the same as an absence of love.
So why is it that people instantly think, "love, opposite is hate"? In fact, couldn't one love something and at the same time hate it?
I think they're very similar emotions. They're both very passionate and extreme emotions. It is very hard to get these emotions, it kind of has to build-up. You can't just all of a sudden feel these intense emotions. But of course everything has its exceptions and that does occasionally happen.
Doesn't it make more sense that the opposite of Love is No-Love?
