Há verbos, como o "try", cuja negação é "not" e não "don't"?

In this case you are not using it as a negation, in fact you are making a statement that "you try not to love someone."
You are saying that you are doing something "trying" not saying that you are not doing it, which would be a negation if you stated "I am not trying to love you".
Notice that I didn´t make your sentence a negation (as they ask to do in textbook exercises); I just illustrate with an example of a negation, where NOT is negating the word it modifies (that happens to be a verb).
