The opposite of Love is not Hate. It’s indifference. Is this true?

    No. Hate is the opposite of love. Jealousy caused Cain to hate Abel to the point of murdering him, and it caused Joseph’s ten half brothers to hate him to the point of wanting to do away with him. The Bible tells us that there is a special lesson we should learn from that. Do you know what it is? ‘This is the message which you have heard from the beginning: We should have love for one another; not like Cain, who came from the wicked one.’ So brothers and sisters should have love for one another. They should not be like Cain.​—1 John 3:11, 12.  Jesus’ counsel to love one’s enemies is in full harmony with the spirit of the Hebrew Scriptures.

    Yes, because even negative attention expressed as hate is better than nothing at all, like indifference.

    Yes, when someone you love disappoints you or causes you pain you hate them. Shows strong emotion towards them. But when you stop loving them you really do not care what they do.

    To some degree I would say yes.  Forms of hate for someone or something can easily surface after loving it first, and sometimes the most intense kind of hate.  Then again, indifference describes lack of emotions, which the same can't be said about love.  Maybe the opposite of love needs more than one word to describe it...maybe.
