Manny and Owain work well in most universes after they get over some initial bumps. The more carefree attitude and willingness to just accept his fault without trying to fix it that Manny carries into any relationship usually rubs Owain the wrong way, when he works so hard to take responsibility for his past mistakes. But with a greater understanding that they’ve both come from different rough lives, usually the two can find a comfortable compromise between themselves and enjoy relaxing and growing old together.

Ada has everything Manny gets subconsciously drawn to in a romantic interest.

Usually when Manny’s relationship with Jones is ever stronger than acquaintance so far, it’s in an almost loyal dog sort of way.

In some cases, that idea of a better life differs from what Jones is thinking of, but the two will have to cross that bridge when they get to it.
Dust and Manny are super easy to ship in any military situation they could meet in. Dust and Manny lean on each other a lot in times of need for comfort, and thanks to their free-flowing nature, even when having to break apart the relationship the two always kept a fondness for each other in their hearts. Dust’s similar calm aura meshes well with Manny’s, and is very good at helping Manny get through his own self depreciation and guilt.

Like Ada and Arin, Regis carries a lot of traits that quickly catch Manny’s eye. But his passion and dominant personality can easily overtake Manny, pulling him into a trap he might start to regret later due to conflicting morals, even though those morals are probably more conflicted within himself instead of between him and Regis.
