Honestly, I think Korra would have been better off with a guy like Bolin. We all see what kind of guy Mako is at times, Bolin has a good heart and is a fun loving guy, he doesn't hold grudes either for example when Mako kissed Korra knowing he had feelings for her he let it go.
KorraxKorra tbh. We need some awesome adventure/ introspection times without relationship drama plz. But I do prefer BolinxKorra since he's so sweet and they had so much fun on their date. Though Korra is obviously attracted to Mako and that's not something you can really control but points to Bolin for respecting that. IDK. I've clearly had a lot of issues with how Makorra has been developed in the show so I'd take Borra. It's so cute.

Only relevant up to 1.34 but it still may swing the vote :
When what was whispered by the lovers in a cave as they blazed a trail toward freedom will be shouted from the mountain tops. When the world finally sees that the hopes of the little girl from a crumbling Southern Water Tribe are the same as the dreams of the boy in the iceberg. We will begin the next great chapter in the Avatar Saga with one word- KATAANG!
Sorry I have to go for Makorra. I think they are cute together.
And that's why I don't like it. Its a pleasing match on the outside, just in the same way that Zutara was. You don't look at Aang and Katara and instantly say they they would be a cute couple. I would love to see the headstrong Korra fall for the bumbling, loveable guy just because it brings some normality. I see long term in my ships, and what always bothers me about characters like Mako (and even Zuko, Jet and Haru to an extent) is that they are great for drama and suave moments, but in the end, they never seem to have backbone when it comes to the important meat and potatoes of the relationship. I see Bolin flubbing up the entry, but not what he wants in the end....Asami *cough*
I ship Borra more Makorra. I just don't see the appeal in Mako and Korra together and plus they both royally screwed over Asami's feelings. Bolin and Korra would have been different. Mako/Korra was always a little predictable.
At the beginning of the series I would have said Makorra, but after the way they got together I have to go for Borra. The complete disregard for Asami bothers me. I think the Makorra storyline would've worked better if it happened later down the road like in the upcoming season. But I just hope Bolin and Asami don't end up together just because it's easy.
I think what I feel like has already mostly been said. I ship Borra because Makorra was not only a complete disreguard for Mako x Asami but the two just don't go together. They're both too hotheaded to really show great romance and I feel like Bolin's fun loving, sweet nature would balance out Korra better than Mako can.
