What teen/20s drama love triangle show can I watch after my recent Dawson's Creek bender?

I often have weeks off work at a time and like to marathon TV shows. Most recently, I decided to watch some of the shows that I wasn't into back in the 90s/00s—shows I used to make fun of my sister for watching. Earlier this summer I watched Felicity and I just finished all 6 seasons of Dawson's Creek... in two weeks. I loved it. What other shows are out there that I haven't seen before? I'm ideally looking for hour-long teen-ish soaps with love triangles and angst.
I spent my college years watching X-Files and La Femme Nikita, and sci-fi is probably still my main thing so I'm really excited to watch Fringe next (Joshua Jackson is a nice bonus). My fandoms have always leaned sci-fi (Smallville, Merlin) despite religiously watching The CW in my 20s.
Below is a list of teen shows I've already seen (maybe I've seen them all?). I'm open to re-watching them, but I love that I wasn't spoiled for who Joey would end up with at the end of the series. I've stayed away from a lot of the more recent CW series (Vampire Diaries, Gossip Girl) after watching the first seasons because I hate how they act like they're 35 when they're supposed to be in high school.
