I think Mulder sat back and waited for her to catch up to where he was in terms of feelings for each other.

These new shows are trying way too hard to create for the audience what has to feel natural. The ever elusive potential was a large part of M&S' appeal, these youngins nowadays are just way too obvious in their lust.
And nothing bothers me more, and pushes me away more (from TV shows) than forcing something like a romantic relatsionship on me as a viewer. If I don't feel that the UST is sincere, I don't buy it and will not support it. I hate how it feels like the writers and actors are trying so hard to create that UST chemistry. That's not something that you can write. That's not something that you can necessarily act out. Therefore it's just not sincere. It's fake and forced, and that does not work.
