Oz scared her the first time she met him -- of course -- but she couldn't help respecting his willingness to leave when Willow made her decision.
She did a spell to check on him once. She realized she could never tell Willow what she saw, so she never did it again. Not that she saw anything bad. On the contrary, she saw strength, dedication, and commitment. She admired him tremendously. She wasn't sure she'd have the strength to leave Willow if she needed to.
Sometimes she wished he would come back, just once, so she could talk to him.
