Tara and Buffy would have been very good for and to each other. I don't see lesbian or bi Buffy, but if i did i like this pairing a lot. I hate Buffy romantically with Willow and don't care for her with Faith - both pairings I have seen quite a bit. Tara needed to be emotionally defended and Buffy needed acceptance and both were honest, honorable straight shooters who would protect each other's hearts. They could do much worse!Honestly... I strongly disliked basically every man Buffy dated - weren't they just all like... Not good enough?
I liked Angel the most - I like Spike season five onwards but I never thought of them as a serious thing.
Sometimes I really wish Buffy was the one who came out as being interested in women and dated Tara, instead of Willow. I know this may sound crazy to some, but just think of that beautiful chemistry we saw in season six with Gellar and Benson - it makes my heart warm.
Also agree with what some others have said - Buffy had fabulous chemistry with Principal Wood. And yeah I didn't like Ben...
Gellar and Benson played really well together.
