Ugly Betty Fans: Should Betty and Daniel Date?

From the first season of Ugly Betty, I always had a feeling that someday the writers would inevitably run out of ideas and make Betty and Daniel hook up. OK, I may have been tipped off by the original series, Betty La Fea (where Betty dates her boss), but it just seems natural that after enough time, the two characters that were always "just friends" end up together.

Well, the time may be in the near future according to the show's creator, Silvio Horta. He told EW, "We’ve been batting around the idea. It is not outside the realm of possibility that something [could] happen, but we’re not sure yet." Horta went on to say that some fans will be displeased whether the co-workers get together or not, but what's your take — should Betty and Daniel date?

I agree that they have both been there through each other's changes during the course of hte show, but I can't see Betty with Daniel. LIke someone mentioned before there's no romantic, sexual chemistry-but they are definitely good friends and I'd like to see them that way. And as much as I LOVE Matt, is anyone getting the feeling that this second time 'round, Betty is not into it at all? What's the whole deal with Betty not liking spending all that time with Matt, or freaking out about being pregnant after Matt said it was okay-I liked their initial banter at YETI.

I say yes! Betty helped straighten Daniel out from his shallow, selfish ways and he helped her gain confidence, like when he helped with the normal sized fashion show and when she caught Jesse kissing Amanda. IMO they are great for each other and there probably would have been more chemistry between them if it weren't for the epic fail at chemistry and writing that was last season.

In this American adaption, I really don't like the idea of pairing them up together

I don't think they should. I understand that that's what happened in the original, but I just can't see them being romantic.

No. Unless Betty gets a serious makeover, it's unrealistic. Even then, I don't think romantic chemistry is there.

I said "no," but I don't think it would be jumping the shark. I love Daniel and Betty's relationship, they are like a well-oiled machine in how they work together. And I know that's how the original played out. But I really loved Betty with Gio. He challenged her every day and all my best relationships (romantic and platonic) have been that way. I'm really glad they are moving the show to Wednesdays though. I've had to watch online so it will be nice.

Aww I'm hoping they don't. I think Daniel is too needy, but that is just me...

They're kind of like Joey & Rachel from Friends to me. They might try, but it's too ridiculous to work out. They've been such good friends for so long.

I didn't see the original but I've seen a lot of mexican telenovelas and I was REALLY hoping they wouldn't do that to this how. I just find it unrealistic. If they did, I'd have a hard time being convinced.

I feel like this season they've started hinting at it for the first time, but I always knew it happened on the original series, so I wouldn't be surprised.
