Buffy's best love interest: Angel or Spike?
Angel had Buffy's back. He was sweet and kind. Spike, not so much. Spike was Buffy's arch-nemesis, who tried to kill her on multiple occasions before passionately falling in love with her—and growing from enemy into lover (and hero). Who was the better love interest for Buffy?
Angel and Buffy's romance is classic. He loved her, supported her and was a total badass with a soft side (there was a gentleness to him). He's the vampire with a soul, who was in search of redemption. He was always striving to be better.
Who doesn't love the sensitive Angel?
Angel left Buffy in search of redemption.
Spike was a villain who tried to occasionally kill Buffy, but he grew obsessed with her. Eventually—he fell in love with Buffy. Their passionate romance made him a better vampire and he went on to save the world. Angel might have always been the good one, but he left. In the end—Spike was really there for her.
