I would had written the show like this regarding i dont need valentine i just need more game shirt Origins episode finale like Marinette feeling bad she jugded Adrien and after some episodes of interacting feeling touched by his honesty (she will have some insecurity given he is Chloe’s friend, but Alya will support her), then she becomes friends wiht him, and mid-late season she falls in love. S2 she has her S1 shenanigans and some complicated plans without the stalkerish part or his schedule (would put Nino helping her in some parts after a while if any).

Then in S2 she decides she need to be more natural, her natural progression of S2 happens i dont need valentine i just need more game shirt and in S3 she works to confess to him mid season, then we have adrien having to think about it, Marinette realising isn’t the end of the world if she gets rejected. Adrien then in S4 gets further development (he would get his share of development as well in S1,2 and 3 about his sheltered life and his father), mid-late season he is emotionally ready to try for a relationship after said development and thinking about marinette, and S5 they date and then the reveal happens.
