Trying to "go inside your mind", I guess you mean something like this...
The word "你" meaning "you" has a "classifier" on the left includes
character "人" meaning "people" so the character 你 refers to "people".
And in the past, "classifier" 女 (meaning female) was used (even then,
rarely) rather than 人 to denote a female rather than just 'people'.
[Note: cannot find or type in this (female you) word now because it's no
And the word 您 includes another classifier 心 "heart/corazon" to denote
affection or love to that person so it's used to emphasize the affection
to that person.
