    I dont believe in this theory because sometimes you do hateful acts out of love.

    In the sense that love does not include possession, the two are completely unrelated. They are opposites, and only relate in that way. In the sense that loving relationships often include 'ownership,' or possesion of our partners... hate is only one betrayal away from 'love.'

    From a psychological perspective, the opposite of love and hate aren't each other. It's indifference.

    Love and hate are both high arousal states.

    Seems kind of like saying, left and right aren't the inverse of each other: they both leave from the middle.

    You have to travel far away from apathy to reach either hatred or love. What you're ignoring is that you are traveling in opposite directions.

    Indifference can be glacial.
    I'd prefer to be hated rather than be treated with indifference.
    IMO

    No, actually love and hate aren't in opposite directions. They are both high arousal states.

    It's actually much easier to go from love to hate to love to hate, than to try and spark either of those from total indifference.

    Try it sometime. It really works.

    My mother in law always said that you hurt the ones you love the most. It's very true.

    Hopefully not as a justification for hurting the ones she loved?

    nothing could be more true then that. my ex and i go back and fourth like that..such as one day we were screaming in each others faces about how we hate each other and 5 minutes later we were kissing and then 10 minutes later we went to dinner and talked fine all night at dinner. I think a lot of times when you love a person so much and something happens and you get lost, you do hateful acts out of love..out of not knowing how to handle your feelings. I know I have. I still struggle with this everyday when it comes to the ex and i.

    In line with what Johan has said, they are both very powerful feelings. It's like being so happy that you burst into tears.
