Can somebody give light into this phrase, "the more you hate, the more you love". I have been hearing this eversince I was introduced to love's complication but I have never experienced this feeling at all... Do you think this is just a joke?

I think it is true but it does not apply to all. Here are the instance when this applies: 1. the person in loved denies that she loves the guy. So she covers her feelings by hating the person. 2. she just wanted to catch the attention of the man he loves. 3. you are afraid of loving so instead you choose to hate, but deep inside you are burning with love.

4.another reason is jealousy. When the man you love has his own love you get jelous and you hate him 5. rejection. He does not love you, but you still love him so you hate him but love him as well.

....i don't know how to answer this question but i believe hate is not the opposite of love but its indifference,,,,,,like you don't care... sometimes i have thought that hating is the bad way of loving.....its like when you are loving you produce many kinds of emotions and feeling.....like just hating when i hate someone I always think about him/her of what he/she doing now...(but in an angry type of thinking.) when my enemy is gone i kept on looking on her/him so I can have fight on him/her. its kinda confusing, if the one you love can make you happy and cry......the one you hate can make you mad and cry.........the only one you hate can make you crazy mad......like the one you love cam make you crazily happy/////////... I think I didn't answer your question.....sorry...but that's what i have thought when i read your questions......

I often get to hear that from other people when two individuals who are not committed to any relationships are quarreling as if they have been married for a long time. Hate would have a common definition for most people yet, it can have different interpretations when its between two individuals who aren't in a relationship. This hatred amongst each other intensifies their recognition for each other. Knowing what you hate from a person, you also end up getting to know the things that you can appreciate from them, having such an understanding develops as time passes. Tolerance develops even if they still look like they are arguing about their issues. Then again, hatred can be due to different reasons. It might be from being jealous to the other person's situation, irritated with the other's habit or personality or so on with other reasons that can ignite any reproaching attitude but, with that attitude, attention is given. Something that affection has in common. Another thing that is common with love and hatred would be thinking too often about the other person. Well, it depends on the situation as well if they would get to settle their differences or just continue being angry at each other but, when they do settle, they become friends or even more than friends. That phrase is somehow just a conclusive summation assuming of a conflicting beginning to a romantic conclusion. (^_^") Well, that's just what I can think of or, its really just a joke for other people.

that doesn't make sense..how the more you hate become the more you love? If you hate someone you surely don't love them, so how come hate become love..

This is true, this is not really a hate but love towards the person whom you admire, you show to everyone that you hate that person, but there is something in you who dictates that you like that person and you want to talk to him every time you got a chance. Some people don't really show their true feelings, instead, they just making some way to be noticed by whom they admire that's why they show hate instead of love.

I don't believe in this saying because how can you hate the one you love. No matter how angry you are and if you love that person, love will still be above that feeling. Maybe he has a different meaning on the word hate.I hope it's a joke but not a nice joke.

'Hate' or 'Love' is looks like different meaning words...it contain some heavy meanings....as per my view "The more you hate,the more you love" has a heavy meaning...commonly we know where love stays there hate cant make a space,but if we think some different ways,we know it.. suppose a boy loves a girl from heart and the girl hates the boy..the boy continue grow up his feelings and the girl hates the boy more and more..then a line comes into the boy's mind,that's it "The more you hate,the more you love"...........

maybe. maybe not. there are some instances in this life where the most hateful thing you had will become someday the thing you most love. it seems to be ironical , isn't it but its the reality. try to reflect and you will find the answer yourself.
