They seem to be content with each other now that the secret of Dawson and Peter Mills relationship is now out.
In season 2 after Mills breaks up with Dawson for various reasons (one being Dawson’s feelings for Casey) Dawson and Casey begin to spend more time together, partially because Casey has to look after Heather's children (even with his 24 hour shifts) and asks for help from Dawson and the rest of the fire house. After spending more time together Casey and Dawson decide for the moment they are happy just being friends. Casey eventually gets helps from Dawson's friend, Isabella, to get Heather moved to a minimum security facility so that she can see Griffin and Ben more often. In the episode No Regrets, Heather gets released due to overcrowding. She decides to move to Florida because she can't live in Chicago without being reminded of both her husband and friend's death. This deeply saddens Casey, but understands Heather's reasons for leaving. In the episode You Will Hurt Him, Casey and Dawson wake up in bed together the next morning. Dawson still has doubts and fears about Casey's commitment but he tells her "I had a chance at this a year ago and I blew it. I've been regretting it ever since." He further assures his seriousness about his commitment by telling her "As far as I'm concerned, it's our time now." They kiss confirming and starting a relationship. In episode 3x02 Casey proposed to Dawson at the Fire academy but before he could finish asking the question Dawson gave her answer "Yes". The two then go home to have sex. However their happiness was short lived because of Dawson joining truck 81 they could not get married. In episode 3x07 the two share their feelings about how they would do anything if they could get married now and seal it with a kiss. This is also shortlivesd because after they were caught kissing in his truck all things go downhill for the couple. Dawson breaks up with Casey in season 3 episode 11.

They are often seen putting themselves in danger to protect each other, such as when Kelly went into an unstable burning building to help Casey find his fiancé. After Casey was injured in episode 2x10, Kelly was the first to notice that he was not healed. He was very concerned about Casey, asking him numerous times If he was okay and offering help. The two are close friends.
Following Shay's death, Severide moves in with Casey and Dawson. Severide and Casey become roommates after Dawson moves out. Some of the strain on Casey and Dawson's relationship comes from Casey and Severide's relationship; with Casey putting Severide in front of Dawson, Such as when Dawson tells Casey to ask Severide to move out and Casey responds by saying Severide "is going to need [him] on his side, so good or bad that's where [he'll] be".
