17 “Cute” TV Relationships That Really Aren’t Cute At All
Dawson and Joey, Dawson’s Creek
Joey and Dawson have an incredibly unstable relationship. Although Joey had long harbored a crush on Dawson, when they actually got together, she had trouble expressing her feelings with him. What’s more, he had a habit of lashing out or making public displays that were both uncalled for and unnecessary.
Their breakup made a lot of sense. Dawson may be a little too self-centered to ever have a truly functional relationship with anyone. Eventually, though, they find their way back together. Although it may have seemed romantic in the moment, this was probably a bad call for them both in the long term.
