Olivia has several advantages:

1. She is alive.
2. She likes Giles enough to buy a return ticket, go to the airport, put up with all the security hassles, fly thirteen hours on airline food, take a taxi to Giles' place and sleep with him then put up with all the same hassles of the return trip, although it might take a little less time if they catch the Jetstream on the way back.
3. She is the only to turn the monotony of Giles' life into cuppa tea, cuppa tea, definitely got shagged, cuppa tea.

Xander. :) I'm a huge Giles/Xander fan and I never saw them having a father/son relationship because Giles never seemed interested in having one.

I'd say Olivia as well. They always seemed to have a pretty cool relationship. Him with Buffy or any of the Scoobies is just weird (bordering on gross) to me. Also, his relationship with Jenny was annoying at first, but developed pretty well and could have been interesting if she hadn't died. Though her death did serve a purpose and I don't know that I would change it. Another option that was explored just a little bit was Giles and Joyce, but of course that was Ripper!Giles.

I love the idea of Giles and Joyce.... why is Joyce not an option?!? They had so much chemistry in Band Candy. Ok, it was spell-based chemistry, but it was hot and they were gorgeous together.

Joyles 4 eva!

I liked Giles with Jenny. I think their relationship showed off his softer side, and he was so smitten.

Jenny of course. They are one of my favorite Buffyverse couples. Hip, computer teacher Jenny and stuffy Giles arguing over technology is so cute. I think she could have made him happy for the whole show. Then he would have had someone in the later seasons when he felt more aimless. I still wish the actress had returned for Restless, and possibly as The First in Season 7.

I voted for Anya, because I loved them in Tabula Rasa! And I ship Anya with anyone other than Xander. But for Giles I'd actually go with Jenny. I really loved their relationship in season 2.

I loved Giles with Jenny. I know she's dead and he needs another but had to give her my vote for sentimental feelings....

I can totally see Giles and Anya being end game.
