CotW: Irene and Sherlock (Are They Even a Couple?!?)

Sherlock and Irene Adler: is there something there? Am I crazy? Why is this bothering me so much?!

Maybe @shannonl5 @LAVONYORK @MichelleHolly or @ChosenKnight will have an answer for me. Or four different answers. (Srry Sherlock fans, I did a little creeping. But I HAVE to know!!)
So here's what happened. Basically, I somehow MISSED an entire episode of Sherlock. I don't know why, I don't know how, but I never saw A Scandal In Belgravia (aka S2E1). So when I recently finished series 3, and decided to watch back through the first two series again, I was like WAIT A SECOND, WHAT IS HAPPENING HERE?!?

So THAT'S why I never knew who Irene Adler was. Sigh.

So for this week's Couple of the Week, I am dedicating this card to my utter confusion.
ALERT! SHERLOCK S2E1 SPOILERS BELOW!!
Does Sherlock really save her? Do they ever see each other again? I read this Sherlockology article, but it didn't provide me with everything I was looking for.
Here are my questions (open to anyone who's into Sherlock! Seriously, this is torturing me):

Does Sherlock have feelings for Irene?

Can Sherlock "fall in love"?

Why is Irene so damn special?

(She just kind of annoyed me tbh. She didn't seem worthy of the title "THE Woman.")
PLZ HELP ME K. Thank you very much.

I'm up to date. You can always ask me these things. ;-) Hiwever, the best answer here comes from Moffat himself: http://thinkprogress.org/alyssa/2012/05/07/479306/steven-moffat-on-sherlocks-return-the-holmes-watson-love-story-and-updating-the-first-supervillain/ I think it all comes down to understanding that different kinds of exist. :)
