    Welcome to the forum.

    I neither love it nor hate it.

    Note that it's important to capitalise "I" at all times. We don't put a space before a full stop, comma, question mark or exclamation mark.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Thank you.
    But I want to say that sentence in answer to something , that is what it is necessary to use "do" after neither or nor. But i just don't know how to use that.

    I don't understand what you want to say. You said "I want to say that sentence in answer to something" - what are you answering?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I think the answer is going to be the same anyway. Even if the question is "Do you love it or hate it?" there's no need to use "do" in the answer.

    I agree with Raymott- just because we use do in a question, it doesn't mean we have to use it in an answer.

    Parallelism (grammar) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia - Neither do I A nor do I B/ I neither A nor B - in each case, what follows 'neither' is the same syntactically as what follows 'nor'.
