You know, you're right. I don't have a couple that I want to root for. I'm rooting for Nicole the individual now, as well as JJ the individual, Hope the individual...Nick the individual....I used to think that couples were shoved down our throats too much, but now it would be nice to find ONE romance that wasn't going to fizzle. (Nope, it ain't going to be EJami or Fetch for me, sorry!)

I'm all for slow burn romances on soaps, but Ericole is ridiculous. There has been zero movement since Eric returned to Salem. At this rate they're going to be applying for Social Security by the time they get together.
I'm starting to wonder if they were ever going to get together in the first place or if this whole Ericole thing is supposed to be Nicole's new redemption/personal growth storyline? It's pretty up in the air at this point.
Eric doesn't have romantic feelings for Nicole (he almost seemed horrified that people suggested she had feelings for him) and Nicole is going in and out of accepting Eric as an unattainable priest. I just don't know what we're supposed to be getting from these two anymore. :shrug:
I think it's going to happen but not as fast as most couples on Days have been in recent years. I think Days wants Eric to lose that collar first (via Kristen) and deal with those issues before being with Nicole. I can see the writers have Nicole help Eric come to terms with what he has gone through to bring them together.
I think I'm just getting impatient with Ericole because I desperately need a couple to ship right now. All my fave ladies are single/separated and it's hard for me to root for Chabby or Bristen when I know CD and ED are leaving. And Dannifer? Well they're just massive vortex of suck.
