That was part of the reason I stopped watching. Maybe I should catch up with it sometime...

it was obvious the writers were delaying it, but it only made people quit the show

That kind of writing just annoys me. I've seen it on a number of shows, and when they started doing it on Arrow, I got fed up and stopped watching.

I don't understand why they insist on delaying romance on all those shows. Seeing the characters together doesn't ruin anything!

Yes I totally agree. I actually enjoy watching established couples together because they do have to work through their problems, and fight for their relationship. If a couple isn't fighting for the relationship, why should I as a viewer be invested in it, when they clearly can't be bothered?

I personally think it's lazy writing. It assumes the viewers will only invest in a couple if they take forever guessing whether they will get into a relationship, but when they do, constantly break them up again, to get that 'will they, won't they' writing style back again.

I first saw this on The New Adventures of Superman. I massively shipped Lois and Clark and they took forever to get together. They were about to be married and it all went wrong again. I walked away from that show, because of it.
