He can't like anyone but blondes???

I was joking. But true, then he just chased married women (ok, I know he didn't know that, so no letters!!).

Why not? They are pretty compatable, each has skilsl th other lacks, so lots of good conversation, both can be pasionate.
It's not that I can't see it--because I actually would have liked that to happen--it's just that you're the first person I've ever seen suggest that kind of pairing...

Besides, I am sure LaForge looks better at a Betazoid wedding than Riker did.
No comment.

She would have went with LaForge as Worf would have gone after Troi.

Remember the episode (I can't remember the title) when a Klingon woman was on the bridge and "flirted" with Worf Klingon-style (read: a lot of growling) and then tried to punch (or kill, I don't remember) Yar out of jealousy? (Ugh, that was an awful scene, wasn't it...) In season 1, besides Troi/Riker and Picard/Crusher, there were definitely hints that Yar could be a love interest for LaForge, Worf and Data (or a lot more, in Data's case).

Which might be a reason why we should be grateful for Yar's death - at least it has spared us a lot more of cheesy shipping and love tiangles/quandrangles.

Don't forget Bashir. The difference was that Bashir was a supposed "ladies-man" who was, ironically, constantly unlucky in love and unsuccessful with women (until the final chapter). Which I guess can also be seen as a subversion of the Kirk/Riker ladies-man stereotype. (Tom Paris was a bit like this, too, before he hooked up with B'Elanna.)

Come to think of it, one might say that, post-TNG, any male character with a womanizing aspect to him was portrayed as either unsuccessful/unlucky in love (Bashir, Paris before he started a monogamous relationship), or sinister/evil (Dukat). Or it was used as comic relief for how unexpected it was (Quark's successes with women - Natima, Grilka, Pel, Sakonna to an extent).

It's to bad they didn't get Denise Crosby to play Yar in the episode Parallels, that would have been interesting to see her in the various different realities. According to memory-alpha they considered it but thought it would be too similar to Yesterday's Enterprise and included Wesley instead. Lost opportunity there if you ask me.

Sonya Gomez. Apparently that was why she was introduced, as a possible love interest for Geordi, but they abandoned the idea for whatever reason.
