Bemused tolerance, maybe?
It is perfectly possible to love (as in 'being in love', not 'falling in love', now that's something that needs better words in English!) someone and hate them at the same time, or be disgusted by them, or disrespect them. Might lead to the 'lover' being ashamed of his/her/its feelings though. I think (being in) love is an emotion that can be combined with just about any other emotion, except the Global Emotional Exception: apathy. t., and ambivalence is the name of the game
