Aside from some confusing feelings about Leia Organa, Luke was never seen harboring romantic feelings for anyone in canon, but Legends explored Mara Jade and many of Luke's love interests in novels, short stories, and comic books.
Having refounded the Jedi Order and trained several new Jedi including Leia, Luke eventually marries an enemy-turned-ally Mara Jade, and they have a son named Ben, who was voted the 40th top Star Wars character by IGN and the 6th top Star Wars Expanded Universe character by UGO Networks.
Of course, any romantic feelings between the pair disappeared completely in Return of the Jedi, which turned Luke and Leia from potential lovers to siblings in one fell swoop. It was a soft retcon that effectively erased any and all drama the love triangle between Luke, Leia, and Han might have presented.

While Return of the Jedi would ultimately reveal them to be siblings, A New Hope implied Luke's attraction to Leia throughout, while the two kissed multiple times in The Empire Strikes Back, with further romantic moments ending up on the cutting room floor, as seen in the movie's deleted scenes.
And with Han not even present in the scene until the very end of this version, there's no way to argue that the near kiss between later-retconned siblings Leia and Luke was simply meant to make him jealous. It's evident there's a clear attraction between the two of them.
After Leia and Luke's lips lock in Lannister love, our wookie friend vocalizes what seems to be his approval. However in hindsight, Chewie was more than likely saying “Your species' obsession with sibling mating is a curious one, I've seen your browser histories”.
