This was actually quite a popular crossover pairing back in the day. I always liked the idea of the pairing, two lost teenagers helping one another navigate their way through the supernatural world, so yeah, I don't find it weird at all.
So in Gossip Girl, Dan and Serena were together, then they broke up, then their parents got married, Dan and Serena slept together once as step siblings, then their parents got divorced, then Dan and Serena got married. Perhaps that's what you're thinking of. Anyway I think the step relationship thing is a definite NO. So if Angel and Buffy were together, no Connor and Dawn. In fact, in that case I'd like to see them bond in a sibling way. (Though they'd technically be aunt and nephew) Without a Buffy and Angel pairing, Connor and Dawn would be okay, but I think they wouldn't work. They're both strong on their own, and I could see them losing their independence too much when together. Connor could have that whole overprotective warrior mentality while Dawn could be a little clingy.I know there was a TV show that did this where the parents got together and the step children also had a relationship but I am drawing a blank.
If my dad is dating my friend's sister, my friend is off limits. Dating dead guys is unconventional yes. But this isn't about being conventional or not. It's just ICKY.But, I mean, they're not actually related nor do they have any sort of familial relationship to one another, so I don't really see the weirdness. I mean, this is a show where a woman dates two dead guys, I think all normal conventions are out the window on this one.

Sorry if I haven't been clear. There is no ickiness unless Angel and Buffy are together at the time. That's what I tried to say in the first post.I ... still don't really see the ickiness. I mean, they're not related, they're not even close to being related, they were raised/created in completely difference circumstances and worlds, they didn't grow up together, they're not familiar with each other. Yeah, okay, her sister and his father dated but that was in the past and their lives are so separate by the time Connor and Dawn come along that I don't really see the problem.
Your single parents should respect that you guys were together first. If they don't, you deal with it, but it will get weird. You'd like to say there won't be problems, but that is just not the case. You will feel the ickiness eventually.Ok but what if - you fall for a girl, you are super into her and then your single parents meet each other and hit it off? Do you just decide not to act on that relationship because of your parent's dating?
I don't think there's anything wrong with Connor and Dawn. They could be a good match: supernatural "parents", past existential crisis, impossible birth/existence, moral and loyal characters, both underrated by people around them and not just the fans, funny and sweet, etc.
However, I won't lie and say that Dawn and Connor being together at the same time as Buffy and Angel wouldn't be a little weird or awkward for all involved.
Like I said earlier, Connor/Dawn used to be quite a popular pairing, so I don't think people would be too weirded out by it.But I'm wondering how that fits with Angel/Buffy. I don't mind the funny awkwardness of it initially as it could make for a good story but would people be too weirded out by it?

Reality really isn't neat. I'm from a family where my grandfather married two sisters. First one died, her kids went to live with grandparents, he came back from university, married the younger sis who'd helped raise his kids... so my mom's brothers are her cousins and all other kinds of confusion. It's life. They loved each other, he raised two families that became one. No one in our family cares, we all get along.If my dad is dating my friend's sister, my friend is off limits.
