comment What's the meaning of 〜というものではない?
「相手が好きだから…」is the only example the second one gives. The other examples are all positive (というものだ); and it usually explains both even if the difference is just ない. For this one, though, it just said what I quoted for both. Thanks!

comment What's the meaning of しない as in …するしない?
Thanks, but I'm still confused why this is given explicitly to illustrate 'noun + にかかわらず'. How can a verbform be a noun?

comment Why use あんなに instead of こんなに when expressing one's memories?
Thanks. I guess maybe my brain wants to see symmetry where there isn't. I.e. there are situations where こ becomes そ (and vice versa) and あ stays あ depending on who's speaking. And then there are situations where there is no こ, and for some things あ and そ are interchanged depending on the speaker, and for other things, both use あ. Does that make sense?

comment What's the difference between せっかく and わざわざ?
Interesting! I looked it up in 類語例解辞典, and the explanation is (word by word) identical to the one from goo...

Thanks! I wouldn't vouch for my translation of the last example. In fact, now that I read it, your translation seems to make so much more sense than mine. The example sentence is an from my JP-JP dictionary and is given without any context :)
