Hamlet apparently loved Ophelia so much that, Forty thousand brothers. Could not with all their quantity of love. Make up my sum . Still, we have reason to be suspect of Hamlet's love for the fair Ophelia. In act three, Hamlet basically called her a strumpet and implored her not to breed. He also challenged Ophelia's chastity in public. So yes, Hamlet might have loved Ophelia but he used her to gain his own advantage.

Hamlet was close to Horatio. He was probably the only character that Hamlet trusted in the play. Hamlet trusted him with his plan to expose Claudius and he trusted him to watch over Claudius during the play scene.

Hamlet loves his mom Gertrude, he really loves her! Many critics have noted Hamlet's Freudian obsession with his mother. How far you want to take that is up to you. I think Hamlet regards his mother as weak and naive. Hamlet will go on to paint all women with the same brush, "Frailty thy name is woman".
