When I posted about Cin being the only "happy" couple, what I actually meant was they're the only couple I see any resemblance to the ones I liked back in the day, like: Jack/Jennifer, Bo/Hope, Steve/Kayla, Shane/Kim, John/Marlena, Pete/Melissa, Mike/April, Carrie/Austin, etc.
Of the "under 60" couples, we have Ciara/Ben and Sonny/Will who actually like each other and are dealing with issues.
I guess JJ/Haley like each other too, but I feel they pushed them too fast, and I'm not seeing any chemistry between them. If anything, I probably saw more chemistry between Tripp/Haley, and it might have been fun to watch their fake marriage evolve into a real romance.
Tripp/Claire: No longer rootable at all, and can't see them getting back together.
Lani/Eli: I actually like them, but we've seen so little of them that's it feels too soon to be giving them an obstacle to push them apart. Were they even living together yet?
Hope/Rafe have been a disaster (IMO) since the beginning, so there's no way I'm rooting for them to get back together, rather I'm hoping this is the final nail in that "romance's" casket.
Hope/Ted: thought I might like them as a couple, but I can't stand Ted now. And, for that matter, I can barely stand Hope. Wish the show would back burner her for a while.
Sara/Rex/Eric/Xander/Brady/Nicole/Kristen: The only couple I care about seeing together is Eric/Nicole, and since the part of Nicole is currently "being played by Kristen Dimera", there'll be no happiness for Ericole for a while.
Maybe Sara/Xander? They kinda had chemistry. Sara/Rex, however, are boring, Sara/Eric doesn't work with my Ericole shipping self, plus it was too fast.
Brady/???: short term might end up being with Kristen, but she's hardly his soul-mate
Chloe/???: not sure if Chloe/Stefan or Chloe/Brady are the couple to root for
Gabi/Stefan: there may be chemistry, but I can't see them being a long term couple
Jack/Jennifer: I am rooting for them to get back together, but it's not a "romance" by any stretch of the imagination, at this time
Eve/Jack: definitely not a super-couple type of romance
And that's it for "couples", right? No wonder Cin are popular.
