Numerous things that we're apprised of throughout the play would lead us to believe that Hamlet loves Ophelia. He's written love letters and he professes his love at her grave sight. None-the-less, he also berates her and acts condescendingly. He wrongly takes out his anger at his mother on Ophelia; he accuses her, and he berates her. If he ever really loved her, I don't think he would have acted this way. So, in my own opinion, when he described Ophelia as "...the heavenly idol of my soul...," he must have been in the first stages of infatuation. An infatuation that obviously didn't last.
