    Most of the people I talk to absolutely adore Phoebe and Cole but I never liked Cole at all. I think Phoebe and Cole should have never exsisted. Am I the only one?

    I was never a big Cole fan, either, and I never liked Phoebe and Cole as a couple.

    Well, I never liked them at all. I started watching Charmed in 2004 when it was almost over. I saw how much Piper hated him in "The Seven Year Witch" and I hadn't see the episodes with him in it. He came along and I saw what he did to them. Then I understood why she hated him so much.

    I don't know why you all hate Phoebe/cole. Maybe you mean you hate the way their relationship kept getting road blocks. Their relationship was epic.
    To Phoebe falling in love with Cole, Cole losing his demonhood b/c his inlove with Phoebe, Cole going back to evil, Cole becoming the Source even though he still loves Phoebe. Pheobe falling completely out of love with him in Season 5. And I like the way that Phoebe could sense Cole was in limbo at the manor in "The Seven Year Witch". They might not have been destined to end up together, but they wear meant to BE together, which they were.
    And don't say that you didn't believe Phoebe's soul mate was Cole when her true love's name turned out to begin with "C" in "All Halliwell's Eve".

    Yeah, I was never really a fan of Cole and Phoebe.

    I always thought he was too controling.

    I did like it when they brought him back in season 7. Things like that are awesome!

    I wish they were able to bring Prue back.

    I agree with you totally! And I believe that the "C" was meant to be Cole and most definitely NOT Coop! That relationship seemed far too rushed for my liking - all to make sure that Phoebe got a happy in love ending!

    I agree - I could never understand the whole Cole-Phoebe love story thing. It went on and on and on - until it became really boring. It was initially interesting to watch evil Cole trying to get Phoebe but then the sisters took ages to catch on that he was evil - and it made them look stupid! The best episodes of this long-winded story was when evil Cole married Phoebe - and she became half evil. This storyline could have done with more expansion (it was great to see Phoebe evil and fireballing demons on a whim) but the whole storyline was wrapped up in a few episodes - and we were back to the annoying drama of Phoebe loves/hates Cole...

    Actually I never believed that Cole was her soul mate. I really didn't. I always knew they weren't going to wind up together.

    As much as I love Phoebe I just found Cole plain annoying. I couldnt stand his voice, his character was meh, and i just never really liked them.

    Phoebe and Cole were brilliant together and face it, without them the series would not have gone on so long! After he got vanquished in season 5 storylines became all about Piper's children which wasn't so intriguing. I hated that they made Phoebe be a total bully to him at the end. He only became evil so that he could save her when the old source was going to vanquish the charmed ones, and if Phoebe had accepted him after he became good again things would have been perfect. I hate Paige for ruining their pairing!

    Coop was cheesy, annoying and definitely not Phoebe's soul mate. She only married him because she felt her biological clock was ticking and desperately wanted children.

    I hate to say it, but I agree with you about the Coop thing. But, hey maybe Pheebs was meant to marry Love? I also agree, that Phoebe should've taken Cole back, at least when he lost his powers to Barbas, they really didn't HAVE to give him his powers back, they coul've trapped them ina mystical cage or box,, or sent them to the Wasteland, r what ever. I think Phoebe was just bitter. Wouldn't you be bitter to, after all the crap that happened with her and Cole over the three years?

    But,, I don't agree with you about Paige runing their relationship. She's the one who brought Cole back in the Season 5 Premier, and realized that Phoebe sstill loved him nd she urged Phoebe to give Cole a second chance (well not urge but gave her a look and said a commen) in Siren's Song.

    Yeah Paige brought him back only to vanquish him AGAIN. Without her Cole would not have been vanquished either time.
