Yes, the show was called Dawson’s Creek, so it’s easy to see why some fans still stan for Dawson after all these years. But Pacey Witter charmed us all with his sweet smile and ability to get into just the right amount of trouble, proving that bad boys are impossible to resist. Here are the reasons why we’re so glad Joey chose Pacey over Dawson in the end.
1. Pacey was so much cooler than Dawson.
Dawson was supposed to be the star of the show, but he was so nerdy, and not in the cute way.
2. He was also a complete badass.
3. He even rocks the hell out of a goatee.
4. That smile.
There’s simply no way she could’ve ended up with Dawson.
7. He always kept Joey on her toes.
8. He says things like this.
9. And this.
10. Dawson did this.
Like, wtf, man?
11. Pacey bought Joey a wall.
12. Are you swooning yet?
15. It’s just that Pacey was the one.
She knew it all along.
