Character names: Pacey Witter & Joey Potter
Years dated in real life: 5 months

In a recent post-Tom Cruise interview, Katie Holmes described Joshua Jackson as being her "first love." However, as far as their Dawson's Creek characters go, it was a different story. It took quite a while for Pacey Witter and Joey Potter to wind up together. But after dating a few other guys, including Dawson himself, Joey did wind up with Pacey by the time the series ended in 2003. Now that Katie's once again single, maybe life can imitate art? That is, if Diane Kruger let's Jackson go.
