Is Frodo in love with Gollum

Frodo doesn't love Gollum, he only pities him. If Gollum hadn't been such a miserable creature, most likely neither Bilbo or Frodo would have let him live.

What? He doesn´t want to kill him because he sees a little bit of what he could be inside Gollum and Sam hates Gollum!

Come on... Frodo doesn't want to kill Gollum because when he looks at his eyes, he can see the hobbit he once was, Frodo needs to belive that Smeagol can be saved from the power of the ring because if smeagol can, it means Frodo can also, he doesn't just pities him. He fills that if the ring would have posesed him a little longer he would have become just as Gollum, obsesed with the ring.

Yes, Namo, not to forget that also Bilbo felt pity for Gollum and did not wanted to kill him even though he had the chance to.
Still, none of them are in love with Gollum, they simply pity him.
Sam does not like Gollum since he doesn't want him to hurt Frodo.

Frodo, is not in love with Gollum, he feels sorry for him because he thinks that he will become like him if he fails to destroy The Ring. As he says in he needs to believe that there is hope for Smeagol (y'all don't call him Gollum, that is just plain mean) to get to be normall again, so that he can believe that The ring will not take over his soul. Frodo's only love by the end of both book and movie will be the Ring, even if it'll be destroyed he'll still love it. That is why he will never get married, The Ring took a place in his heart that no woman could replace.

Well now Arwen, he does love Bilbo. And Gandalf. And Sam (Altough they're NOT gay).

I agree with you Arwen and Aire and Prog. I would say Frodo certainly didn't love Gollum because Gollum wanted the Ring.

I wasn't referring to the question, I was referring to the entire "Is ___ in love with ___?" or "Is ____ gay?" concept.
