Class Recommendation - Changing it up
Glad to see that you really like your paladins, but like Celestials said, let me know why. Just because you like it, doesn't mean someone else will..
I find it fun and challenging to play because of the many different ways you can support your team. Do I shock that fear? Do I let go through and tremor? Hold tremor for a burst or when the enemy team has cooldowns up? Shock the sheep or the heal?
Now I know there is depth in every class as far as strategy but as an enh shaman you are given many options to take care of your teammates with offheals, grounding traps, removing curses, termoring fears, etc.
This expansion you will get trained most of the time (not like there hasn't been a expansion where this wasn't true) so it requires that you be comfortable with that, and knowing that your defensives are limited. On the plus side the pressure and burst is quite good, coupled with some strategic planning it can be quite rewarding.

I like my Paladin because I'm into self-abuse. The OP seems like a really fun-loving guy, and I hate fun. Paladin definitely isn't the class for him.
ret's should still be very good at the ratings we are playing at
for ret, its a very active spec. you will rarely find yourself sitting on cooldowns (just a little bit now and then), and it has great support in terms of hands. ret is also pretty hard to kill in a bg setting, and you can make sure its hard to kill your healers as well.
enhance used to be kind of a mirror to ret but with holy power things have changed. ive always found enhance a bit "bursty" in flow, since their attacks have long cds, and they rely quite a bit on procs. still, totems also provide a lot of utility and support.
they are much squishier than ret but they are also better at killing casters due to wind shear and purge, and have slightly better mobility.
havent played monk or hunter extensively so i cant help you there.
spriests are doing awesome right now in arenas, too bad you don't wana play him.
Maybe playing a hunter or MW monk would be a good bridge for you from range-> melee.
I went to warlock when I first made big switch to range and having KJC to be able to keep moving made things much more familiar.
When CD's were up, I felt like a one-shotting god that couldnt be stopped.
When they weren't, I felt like I was mashing the shiny buttons.
I don't think I could ever enjoy the "waiting for cd's" playstyle.
Holy was boring as well.
Thanks for the input so far, guys. Anyone have anything on hunter or MW/WW monk?
MW monks can be very, very very hard to kill. It's simply easier to CC them and go for their teammates. I don't play WW, but in my time against them, they hurt.
RoP seems to be propping them up currently, I look forward to see what kind of buffs they'll recieve once that ability is nerfed.
