Since the beginning of the TV series when Aang was discovered by Katara and Sokka, Aang felt attracted to Katara. When Aang woke up after a hundred years, the first person he saw was Katara. And he immediately wanted to do penguin sledding with her immediately.

Even when Aang offered Katar and Sokka a lift to their home on Appa. Aang was looking and smiling at Katara. To which Katara asked that why was Aang smiling at her. Aang was embarrassed at the question and replied with a question ” Was I smiling?”.

When Zuko came and attacked Katara and her tribe Aang presented himself for capture to protect her and her tribe. It was obvious that Aang liked Katara from the moment he first laid eyes on her. But Aang never had the courage to tell Katara about his feeling of love towards her. In an episode where the team goes to a fortune-teller, Aang is very excited to meet her in hopes of getting some insight into his relationship with Katara.
