    Gloria loves Arthur!!

    Well my answers are somewhat like this

    Ellen loves Jim
    John loves Ellen
    Bruce loves Mary
    Arthur loves Hazel
    Hazel loves John
    Jim loves Gloria
    Mary loves Bruce

    Are these right Biggie?

    Well it was pretty complex rather confusing. I started off in a tabular manner moving stepwise as per the given hints. There came a turn where it was manadatory for Mary to be loved by the person she loves otherwise all the given hints would be disordered!
    This note was the first link in relations and it becomes apparantly easier to solve once you figure out a single link.

    Though there may be many other approaches too.
