> Practically speaking, for adults, the opposite of love is not hate. The opposite of love is indifference.

After some time spent comparing words on the Merriam Webster Site, I have come to the conclusion that you are right about indifference being the opposite of love. Though, technically, love is the direct opposite of hate.

>Unfortunately we have tooooo many meanings for the word love in English.

I agree 100% on that point.

So, I think it is better to have someone hate you than to be indifferent toward you. At least if they hate you, they *feel* something for you. That something could change to love. If they are indifferent, then they feel nothing for you, not a thing.
