When God created man, did he already know that man would sin?

I wonder if God foresaw all the bad things humans would do, and he created and loved us anyway.

The simple answer to your question is yes. Just like human parents know that their children will defy them, rebell against them and cause them many troubles, yet they want to have children and love them anyway.

If you accept that God is omniscient, as Christians do, then he had to know that man would sin. Obviously, however, God felt that the good that humanity would do would outweight the evil. For every sin, there is an often unseen grace. For every damned soul, a saint. God felt the overall balance was for good in humanity.

Yes, He did. That's why He made the provision for Christ to die on the cross. "For God so loved the world, that He gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believes in Him would not perish, but have everlasting life. " John 3:16.
