Answer to the Friday Puzzle….

Last wee I posted this puzzle…..

Four heterosexual men and four heterosexual women are shipwrecked on a desert island.

Eventually each one falls in love with one another, and is loved by one person.  John falls in love with a girl who is, unfortunately, in love with Jim.  Arthur loves a girl who loves the man who loves Ellen.  Mary is loved by the man who is loved by the girl who is loved by Bruce.  Gloria hates Bruce and is hated by the man whom Hazel loves.
Who loves Arthur?

If you have not tried to solve it, have a go now.  For everyone else, the answer is after the break.
