In no universe Aaron could or would utter those words because there IS only Robert. You know, the man so good he married twice and dreamed of having a football team of babies with.
He couldn't and wouldn't move on with Dr Dull - and we at least saw that "relationship" play out from its anaemic beginning to end; it sure as hell had more substance and went further than this ludicrous nothing, which should tell people everything about what "this" is! Because that apparent "relationship" with Dr Floppy Hair was created to intentionally show AARON NOT BEING AND NEVER WOULD BE OVER ROBERT.
I'd be more convinced if Aaron declared himself to an ironing board, at least it would have more personality and usefulness to the narrative than this nobody, yet they expect us to take seriously a non-existent questionable whatever between a former bully and his victim whose only consistency as a couple has been abortive attempts at inexplicably trying to be one?
No. Just fucking no. Go away. You're ridiculous, Emmerdale.
