  • True love has no opposites, but egoic love does. As you can see from the comments, most experience egoic love without realizing it, and then they think it's the same as non egoic love. This is because most of us identify thought and ego as who we are, but it's not.

    We are that which watches the thoughts, that which is beyond, underneath. We are the watcher, not the thinker. We are not our thoughts...

  • That's the only way to love. Hormones make you see all that is right with them. Then they wear off and reality kicks in.

    Everyone has good qualities and bad. Love means seeing the good and ignoring the bad.

    But you need to help each other get there, because you can't just erase your brain.

    Take each others good qualities and blow them up, enlarge them in your eyes and there's, give compliments, tell each other, those reasons why you love them.

    Then you can mention a little of the bad qualities, but then cover them with even more good ones.

    Then you'll find, that the hate becomes the reason to work on love. It's only as real as you understand that it's a place to fill with love. Then you're even happy about hating.

    Otherwise it becomes an illusion, where you blame the other for your own faults.

  • The love-hate relationship. You can. It just shows there is more depth to your relationship. Like with dogs and cats, you love them, but sometimes, they can be bad. As long as you love them more than you hate them, that's a healthy relationship, or at least from what we know.

  • Yes. The opposite of love is not hate, it is indifference. When you don't care anymore is when you need to leave.

    But it is like with your kid. You can love them, but not like them very much. The love overrides all, but you might not like who they are/what they've done at that time.

  • i guess you can love someone with your heart and hate someone in your mind. but at a certain point one will affect the other. if you start to hate someone itll surely affect the levels of hormones/reactions in your body from loving someone.

  • You don't hate them. You hate all the little things they do that drive you crazy. But it all ends up being another one of the many reasons you love them. Like your boyfriend could be a clueless idiot. But he's YOUR crazy idiot 😊

  • Yes. You'll usually hate the things they do but still love them in the end. It's like you hate your parents for grounding you for doing something they think was wrong but you think was right. At the end of the day you still love them right? Same goes to your partner when you really loved him.

  • Yeah if they've caused you pain in some way but at other times they're perfect so basically you just get pent up emotions due to this

  • Yeah kind of but if there is any hate then the relationship is more than likely doomed in the long run.

  • No, a relationship should be an healthy status, not something that brings stress and emotions like hate. That's wrong in my opinion.

  • It is common to hate some things that your partner may do. The question is does what you love about your partner outweigh what you hate about them

  • No, that's called dysfunction. You can't love someone you hate, but you can love the dysfunction they bring.

  • I feel like i always love my partner but at times if we get into a big argument or disagreement, a little bit of that love is forgotten for a period of time and your anger gets in the way and can be mistaken for hatred

  • Actually, love and hate are opposites but kind of the same... Think about it, you can't really hate someone if you don't love them first. Because if you didn't love them they just wouldn't matter. This is based on personal experience, Even tho i never really hated someone its more like i just angry at them at times... lol

    • what you described is more applicable on wether someone can disappoint you without you being personally involved. its insightfull but not always true.

    • Maybe, to me it's more of the yin yang concept on how things can be different but complementary at the same time... But tbh i don't think it's true hate she's talking about, Hate is a very strong emotion.

  • Of course, first there's a thin line between love and hate, they are the two strongest emotions we have. It's common to hate some things about your partner and love the majority of things about them.

  • You only hate something or someone you love because of a bad thing in it, according to the that bad is it effecting you or your life badly then thats a toxic love, better try to fix it if can't well you need to have the guts to live it

  • No.
    you can be temporarily mad at them but still love them overall, sure.
    but loving and hating them at the same time is a toxic relationship.
