In Charmed, it was a rite of passage to date a demon, and all of the sisters have dated at least one. It was Prue’s (Shannen Doherty), Piper’s (Holly Marie Combs) and Phoebe Halliwell’s (Alyssa Milano), and Paige Matthews’s (Rose McGowan) destiny to protect the world with their magic. Unfortunately, that sometimes got in the way of their everyday lives. It created problems for their jobs. And it also made it harder for them to date and trust people with their secret.
Each of the sisters dated multiple men in the series, and occasionally they ended up being a demon or possessed by a demon. Most of the relationships were short-lived, but it became common for the sisters to date a demon. Here are all the demons the Halliwell sisters dated during the show.

They accidentally take his pen, and Phoebe has a premonition about him, and he becomes their innocent. Prue started to like him pretty quickly. She trusted him with their secret because of “his eyes.” He was a half-warlock whose brothers were trying to turn him evil. They even put a spell on him to make him sacrifice Prue.
