Why on earth would anyone be threatened by realism? If I wanted realism, I could just videotape my husband and I eating takeout and watching a movie together.

What makes Chuck and Blair special is that they're heightened reality, they're the sort of epic romance that only exists in TV and movies- and that's exactly why they're so compelling. They're not just some average, humdrum couple, they have the kind of love that transcends compatibility and shared interests. Their love for each other is so intense that every other potential romantic pairing for either of them simply pales in comparison.

@wow??

If anyone is basing their own relationships on a TV show about spoiled-rotten, emotionally-damaged Manhattan teenagers, they've got a lot more problems than just liking Chair.

When you put Chuck and Blair in the same room it's like magic.
Dair can't even compare to Chair. I like the friendship between Dan and Blair, and really enjoy their scenes.
there is no spark between them. Like, at all.

Wow really? People really think Chuck/Blair are voted best teen couple?? Really? It's one of the most abusive and toxic relationships that I've ever seen on television. It's a horrible inspiration for teens to base their relationships. Dair forever

I am not jealous of Chair fans. I feel bad because it is a typical movie/hollywood relationship that wouldn't work out in the long run. Read Brideshead Revisited, Rebecca or A Streetcare Named Desire if you want to see what happens to "a love so intense and all-consuming." It's just archetypal screenwriting that isn't inspired or new. I have not always been a Dair fan either, I just never liked Chair and was unsatisfied with Blair's relationships until I saw the mental chemistry and intrigue that began in season four.

I think Chair fans like to downplay Dair because they are threatened by the realism.

Best Article!

@Maribells They only try to downgrade Chair because they know they will never get the scenes Chair gets and that Dair will never come close to being as amazing as Chuck and Blair are. Jealousy is an ugly shade and it's why Dair fans hate on Chair fans all the time. I just laugh at their attitudes because I know who will end up together and who will be left in the dust.

Who has seen this kind of chemistry with any other couples? I watch a lot of tv shows and I mean a lot..and I don't see the powerful chemistry between Chuck and Blair anywhere else. They should win.

It always cracks me up with you guys try to downplay Chuck and Blair's relationship as "just sex", despite the number of lovely, emotionally-laden, romantic scenes they've gotten over the years. Heck, even in 5x06, they had a gorgeous, heartfelt scene chock full of chemistry, with no sex in sight.

I get that you want to make it all about sex and then dismiss sex as irrelevant (because God knows DB don't have that kind of hotness), but just because Chuck and Blair bring the sexy doesn't mean the other feelings aren't there. If anything, their love borders on unhealthy simply because it's so intense and all-consuming.
