Using le

What type of usage would this be for le… if it was “le preocupa” or “le alegra” etc. Like “le alegra que ella haya dicho si a una cita” or “y hay otras cosas que le alegran” what is the le in these sentences or who is? Lastly “y le gustan muchas cosas de su perfil” thank you!

Hola Katie

In all those sentences "le" is the indirect object pronoun meaning "to him, to her, or to you [formal]" 

All these verbs are reverse verbs, meaning that their structure is different. 

A way to see them and understand them is by trying to translate them this way:

Le gustan muchas cosas = lots of things please him

Le alegra que ella haya dicho sí = her saying yes makes him happy

Here are some lessons on the verb gustar and also a list with some of these verbs that work the same way. I hope they are useful:

gustar 1 

gustar 2

List of reverse verbs

Saludos
