Honestly? Out of the three, the only one I remember him having any interest in was Rayanne.

It's been a few weeks since I last watched the show so maybe I need to watch again, but from Corey's few appearances I never remember him being that interested in Rickie. I can't help but believe that fans are kind of assuming here - that because Corey's an artsy and sorta odd-ball type that he must be gay, even though we see no evidence that he is. And therefore, if he's gay, he must be right for Rickie.

As for Angela, well. We all know what was doing there.

I think that Corey might be interested in both Rickie and Rayanne.

He does seem disappointed that she isn't at the dance and like he had been looking forward to seeing her. I couldn't really believe him when he said that he had wanted to know if she liked how he painted her shoes. That seemed like a cover-up to me.

However, there's something in his demeanor that suggests that maybe he likes Rickie too. Plus, it's also possible that he was disappointed that Rayanne wasn't there, but maybe because he had wanted to spend more time with her because he liked her and was intrigued by her 'wild side'/'free spirit', not necessarily because he was romantically interested in her. Maybe she piques his curiosity as an artist and creative person, sort of like how Rickie is drawn to Rayanne but is not interested in her in 'that way'.

My personal interpretation is that Corey could be bisexual or could be questioning his sexual orientation.

I can't recall specific moments off the top of my head, but I remember that there were at least a couple of times when certain behaviors of Corey towards Rickie made my see pretty clearly that he's not romantically/sexually interested in him (at least not consciously).
The only person I thought was hinted as a possible love interest for Corey was Rayann - based on Corey's disappointment when she didn't come to the dance (I personally don't think he would've expressed such disappointment if he was only intrigued/interested by her as a creative/energetic person).

I always thought that they would eventually have Corey and Rickki get together.

I agree with the other poster that there's something in his demeanor that suggests he is bisexual.
