As much as I like Peeta, and can see a connection of sorts between him and Katniss, I gotta go with Gale. There's just a much deeper connection there, IMO, than there is between Peeta and Katniss
Well, personally, I prefer Peeta, but Katniss doesn't really deserve him.
I think that Peeta deserves better... Of course I love Katniss. But look how she treats him, while he showers her with his undying love! Just like Haymitch said, "You could live a hundred lifetimes and not deserve him you know."
I agree with Vivian. I like them together as Peeta seems to accept it, but Haymitch was completely right with that quote.
Also, kind of a random musing, but there seems to be double standards in YA novels (maybe adult novels also but I'm not too sure on that one). If the genders were reversed and a guy named Kyler was treated a girl named Petra like Katniss treats Peeta, most people would be saying that (maybe it's sweet that she still loves him but) the relationship is horrible and Petra should date someone who appreciates and deserves her (I probably would think so too). But when it is the girl who completely ignores him for months etc her actions are seen as bad but the emphasis is generally on the fact that it's sweet that he still loves and accepts her.
I personally like Gale better in general but I think Peeta is the right one for Katniss. I feel like Gale and Katniss are too similar and really stubborn. If they were together they wouldn't get anything done because they'd be to busy arguing over who would do it. Peeta and Katniss have been through two traumatizing events together and Katniss actually saved Peeta's life as opposed to when Gale was whipped and she didn't do too much for him. (Sorry it's so long; I just spent like a half an hour arguing this point)
Yes, for me it wasn't really a choice. Collins just didn't give us enough reasons why katniss should be with gale, except that they worked together for about 5 years. They're just really good friends (or where).
PEETA!!! i've always loved josh hucherson and always will. oh his jaw line!
Peeta, because his personality contrasts with Katniss, and opposites attract right? I love Gale though, but I think he'd be better as a best friend to Katniss, instead of a boyfriend. Although in the movie, I think Liam (Gale) was more attractive :P
