Indifferent

How indifferent you are? That is as much as to say, “I wonder you can have so little attention to my merit.”

A state of indifference is either an insipid or a foolish one. There are no pleasures for the indifferent, which is no balance for there being no pains for them. Love can less bear indifference than hatred.
