On balance, in the relationship between Chuck and Blair I don't think there's any reasonable argument that makes Chuck the Saint and Blair the evil one, so even the most violent of Chuck-lovers have to accept the fact that people will dislike him because of that. Trying to assign motive and put down people because of that is just stupid and counterproductive to a good discussioI'm not saying you should give him an award, I'm saying that if you ever had love for this guy and lost it at some point, now would be a good time to aprove with his growth and maturing. And I'm saying that Blair played her part in their selfditructive relationship. She would have my respect if she would just for once let go of him for real, and not being the one who runs back to him after he lets her go.
And after four years of bad behavior do you really expect everyone to be so accepting of him because of one single apology?I asked if it's the time to like him AGAIN , not if you would forgive him in Blair's spot. And if you hate him since day one then you have nothing to forgive him cause he didn't dissapointed you.
You are partly right young Betty. I don't think you need sexual tension to be in love with somebody, but you do need sexual attractionhaha, I just wrote that. English is not my first language so I can't really explain it like you guys do but you know I have a point. I'm not saying that there is no possible way Dai could happen, but it's like saying that Blair could end up with Nate because of their history and previous attraction. But today and now I don't have a logical explanation why Dair has more sexual chemistry then Dair, based on that one kiss that lead to nowhere.
And I think a lot of this argument is subjective. You've no right to write off someone's opinions because they don't agree with yours.Of course Im subjective. But at this point, Blair and Dan kissed ( for real) once and she had no feelings after that. She kissed him and had an epiphany that she wants to be with Chuck. Now, I don't really see how that is turning into a passionate Dair realtionship but ok, everyone has his own mind. If you guys all see that Dair is the logical next step then fine. I can only base my opinion on Blairs words and actions. And both weren't really the DAN IS THE LOVE OF MY LIFE.
Sex isn't the building block behind all things romantic. It's just sex. Chemistry's over rated. After you've had all the kinky/ hot/ passionate sex that there is to have, what exactly do you plan on doing? You've got to sit and talk about something, I hope.But attraction is. Have you ever tried to be with someone who you can talk with but you aren't attracted to him? If you had, you would know that it never works. Just like it doesn't work if there is just sexual intention and no other connection. Both has to be there.
It doesn't excuse what she did, but it does mitigate it. Whereas Chuck's only mitigation is that he didn't get enough hugs as a child.Oh come on, he wasn't gonna go through with it, and after that storyline they had tons of sex. If I really thought my ex was gonna kick me out of school I for certain wouldn't sleep with him. It's just part of their stupid silly games.
Nope, I can't remember ever calling Blair an innocent victim or calling Chuck evil (well maybe in jest).Well, others victimise the poor Blar all the time in this thread so I'm just reffering to that. I'm sick of it, specially after she turned out as a cheater and lier.
That wasn’t my point. First, I understand chemistry, but I didn’t see it between these two. I saw more chemistry and sexual tension with Dair arguing in 4x11 on their way to CT. Second, are you willing to see 5x22 = 110 episodes of Chair simply for the way they kiss? They have adult websites for that.What a perfect argument. Shows reflect life. Big part of life is love. Big part of love is sex. Simple, isn't it? You Dair fans just can't admit that Dan and Blair have apsolutly no sexual chemistry. Eventhough Blair told you at least 3 times. They are friends. Nothing more, and nothing less. But it's hard to exept the truth. To be with someone you just need that sexual tention, if it isn't there, you are... just FRIENDS:
AL, come on. He was the one who got her in Columbia in the first place! And she was the one who couldn't let Chuck love somebody else who was a good influence to him.. so she was ''ruining'' his life at that point too. They play games, that is what they do. Again, Blair being the inocent victim of the evil Chuck. Like they have apsolutly nothing in common.
and don't be too sure :) you never thought you would like him again either :)nah, he just can't do it so right that I'm gonna fall for him again. too many big screw ups.
i think people who are hating chuck will be softened just a bit towards him but those that hated him from the beginning will still hate himI think there are very few people who always hated him but a lot who won't admit that they liked him and that he's getting better cause of their hate for his actions in s3. I LOVED that guyn s1&2 but and s3&4 really forced me to dispise him. But now that he's getting mature I'm gonna forgive him and LIKE him again ( I will never love him again, too much shit)
I just find him a bit pointless though when he isn't ruining Blair's life (see Bass Industries storyline).A boyfriend could never ruin my life, cause I wouldn't let it happen. If he starts doing shit, I end it. And was Blair's life really ruined? Isn't that a bit drastic? He hurt her in a bad way, but he didn't kill her mother or something..
