Should I separate my lovebirds?

I rescued two Peace-Faced lovebirds a few months ago from a family who wasn't taking care of them. I've tried bonding with them a lot, yet they still seem scared of me. I've read that you don't have to keep lovebirds in pairs, and that if you want to tame them it's better to keep only one.
When I rescued them, I really didn't want to take just one. I couldn't leave the other there to suffer more. It didn't seem right. So my question is: Should I separate them? And by that I mean give one away to someone I know will care for it properly. I don't seem to be making any progress with the both of them. Will it be easier if I only had one? I love them both and I want them to love me as well.
