I was just wondering which couple everyone likes best.
Buffy and Angel OR Buffy and Spike
Personally I like Buffy and Spike best. When Spike held Buffy in his arms at the end of season seven as she slept I thought it was so cute, amazing, sweet, loving and so much more. And the fact that he went to that extreme to get a soul at the end of season six was amazing.

Spike/Buffy is my Whedonverse OTP -- has been since Becoming or so. I don't dislike Angel/Buffy, though.

This is a tough one. While I like Buffy and Spike a lot, I really feel like Buffy and Angel are the ones meant to be together. Each "ship" has it's own pros and cons, but when it comes down to it I like Spike and Buffy together. This is only because I think that Angel and Cordy work better than Buffy and Angel.

I don't dislike Bangel. When I first became a fan of the show, it was all about Angel/Buffy and how great their love was. Don't get me wrong, I don't think that their relationship was bad. Angel treated her as best he could, especially with the leaving of town. I just feel as though there was more passion and more intensity in Spike and Buffy's relationship. There was a quote that I can't quite remember that Buffy said that was something to the point of needing hurt and pain to make the love more passionate(I believe she was referring to Captain Cardboard). I think that Spike understood every bit of her, and was there for her at her lowest and highest. Buffy really came to rely on him in S7 and treated him as an equal. He made a lot of sacrifices for her and was always on her side. Their relationship was phenomenal to watch and analyze, and that's why I picked them.

I was into Angel and Buffy when I watched it the first time around, of course. But after seeing the whole series, when I started rewatching, Angel was just never as interesting the second time around. I can't put my finger on exactly why, but he just wasn't. Buffy and Spike is much more fun to watch. Plus, of course, they can have sex, and that's important for a TV romance ;-)
I think Spike's soul counts more because he tried so hard to get it. Angel had his forced upon him. Couldn't he go to that same cave and get a soul that wouldn't get disappeared by sex?
This question gets harder and harder to answer every time, especially once yo've read everyone elses opinions and reasons behind them. Can I say Parker? lol
Nah I still have to pick Buffy and Angel, they were the shows two most interesting realtionship in seasons 1-3 even 4 to an extent. But then season 5 came and we have the Spike becoming a hero thing and it works great. Brilliant even, Spike risking his life for Dawn and Buffy. He actually cares for both of them more than he would ever admit, he doesn't have to stya and fight Glory but he does. He helps out for all the right reasons...then seaosn 6 came and well, I don't know what was going on with Spike's charatcer then. He loves her, he hates her he wants to kill her...Ahhhhh! But then came season 7 and they re-built everything (more or less anyway) Their ending still pulls on the heart strings
BUFFY: "I love You"
SPIKE: "No you don't, but thanks for saying it"
That sums up their relationship in those few words. I believe that Spike did truley love Buffy but I don't think she ever could. Not properly like she did with Angel which is why I chose Bangel.

That was then, this is now. A fan fiction script with nearly 100 followers. Set after Angel S6 and during Buffy S8
They were both interesting. I think Buffy and Spike is liked more in some cases because it was darker and more complicated. Buffy and Angel looks straight forward in a way, but it was from a simpler time.
I think it's pretty much accepted that Buffy and Angel were the true couple. Much like Willow/Tara, Xander/Anya & Wes/Fred. Some just seem definitive.

at buffy's age, Spuffy... long term, Bangel... I personally think angel's a tool when he's with buffy and spike is... well, un-spike-like when he is with buffy... but i find BAngel annoying, so SpUffy.

Whedon Fan pretty much sums up my thoughts on this too.
I will always be an undying Bangel fan but this doesn't mean I dislike Spuffy at all. Buffy didn't love Spike, she cared for him, but it can never be one of those epic romances because she didn't love him, IMO. They had some beautiful moments together and Spike was a key part of giving Buffy the strength she needed during Season 7 but I always thought of him more as Buffy's best friend/confident (whilst Xander and Willow were being jerks or wrapped up in their own lives).
Buffy and Angel will always be true lovers. They both love each other completely, no questions asked and were so comfortable with each other. They were perfect together, well...you know....apart from the not being able to "get groiny with it"
