I've never really understood why Selina fell in love with Bruce in the first place. Sure, he's a strong, noble, super-intelligent hero - but on the other hand he's very boring and has a face like a grumpy brick.

Admire him? Sure. Sleep with him every now and then? Why not. But to try and pursue some kind of deep romantic relationship with him... hell no.

bluefall: Babs, looking grumpy and unimpressed (Babs is a grump)

She fell in love with him pre-Crisis, when he was a genuinely caring, generous man with a powerful spark of humor and an occasional almost boyish sense of fun that led him to slide down banisters with a smile on his face in the middle of chasing badguys.

Bruce/Selina, like the mentally stable, happy, properly-raised Dick Grayson and the Babs Gordon who respects and loves her onetime mentor, is an artifact of a happier time, preserved into a new ill-fitting context by momentum, selective retcon, and the stubborn refusal of a small subset of fans and writers to accept the douchebag Batgod as the true face of their onetime hero.
