He obviously didn't care, and that trait has held true the the subsequent shows that he's been in charge of and abandoned.

I completely agree.

Of course the second time with Dawson was only to make Joey jealous.

Having Jack around as a Jen distraction did nothing for me when Andie was tossed away. Maddening.
I also found Jack boring and I agree that they put Jack and Jen together mainly because they were no longer Dawson and Joey's love interests and they needed to do something with them, but they discarded Andie entirely, which I think was so incredibly unfair.

Honestly, Dawson would have been better off being written off the show so he wasn’t the out of character punching bag.
To be honest, I don't blame Dawson for not wanting to get back with Joey right away in Season Three, because she had broken his heart twice in the previous season, so I do think he needed some time to heal before he would want to be back with her, but him and Eve were horrible, and I don't think that he would have waited for as long as he did to try and get back with Joey.
