Why Buffy and Angel Should Be Together
Buffy and Angel's relationship is probably the center of the BtVS universe. It is the basis for most of the episodes. They are really sweet to watch when they're not being angsty. When Buffy gave up her virginity to Angel, the best thing she could ever give him, their world shattered. At first Angel seemed to be the typical insensitive male after sex, with his "Love ya. I'll call ya." In another show, you might expect that. But in BtVS he loses his soul; but it's actually pretty relevant in this world. It's the insensitive male thing to the extreme; every girl's worst nightmare. All in all, it's very satisfying to see how their relationship evolves.
Why Buffy and Angel Shouldn't Be Together
Okay, okay, let's get it over with already! Buffy could be with Xander (Oz, Spike, Giles, or whoever you want) instead of pining over Angel all the time. Or if you're going to be with him, tell him for God's sake! Angel will never pick it up unless you bash him over the head with it. And it's the same with Angel. Find someone new, Brood-Boy! It's better than seeing you mope around all the time. Or get back together with Buffy, but don't take up all of our time brooding about her! Somebody hand me a barf bag...
