I’ve come across this word in the reading excerpt  “The Happiest and Saddest Places in New York City, According to Twitter” by Ben Merchant. This word can be found in the sentence “Having been to just about all of the above, I can attest that each is capable of turning the gentlest romantic into a misanthrope”. When reading this sentence I inferred that misanthrope was going to involve hate since hate is definitely opposite from “the gentlest romantic”. This sentence came after a list of transportation hot spots. Before this list transportation spots was known to make people frustrated.
