Gossip Girl > Gossip Girl Review: Daring to Dair! > Comments Page 4
Dan and Blair are complementary and significantly similar at the same time. That's what I like about them. And I'm not talking of their common cuteness when they're together. I don't understand all the hate by some rude Chair fans. OK, you guys seem widely fascinated by the heavily full of himself Chuck Bass. Let me just remind you that in real life, Chuck is the one you hook up with, Dan is the one you marry.
DAIR all the way !
@lucyyy and @toohip That's what happens when you make it all about the relationship drama.
*i meant serena had only nate and dan like her not every man that breathes... and to everyone that says chair are delusional 13 year olds well im almost 19 lol and have been watching show since it started sooo :|
.. like have everyone fall in love with her is ridiculous.. and people said serena used to be like that well she was what 18 and it was only nate and chuck and it no where near lasted as long as this has dragged on.. blair is out of character this season.. because she has 'grown up' well if you had grown up you wouldnt even be close and spend all your time with the guy your best friend is in love with and you certainly wouldnt encourage her to tell him how she feels to just kiss him. thats sick.. and people saying serena is bad blair is 21!!!!! serena slept with nate before the show started making her 15! lmao.. and i dont remember serena setting nate and blair up and then kissing him.. she was drunk.. blair has been leading all of them on and its just getting boring i want the other characters to be used more. have dan and blair together but let chuck be with someone or have an amazing story other then getting rejected all the time!
Your right!! If it was Serena Blair would kill her..... I agree with ya almost there myself just waiting to see if there maybe any hope at all.....
this is what people arent gettingg.. im a chair fan always have been always will bee.. but even in season 4 i wanted them to do dair.. but this season.. im done this is my last episode and no its not because they kissed its because they chose to make serena like him! when if they would of got together last year serena was over him.. they chose for her to choose chuck last season 4, to chose chuck when they ran away together, for her to say she loves him more and more.. and they make dan and chuck be friends so he can then help chuck and blair get together and then... he was one that put a move on her and she kissed backkk IN CHUCKS ROOM? if serena and chuck kissed blair would kill her. and im done because they have made it all about chair/dair.. and not had amazing storylines.. season 1 and 2 and even 3 had great storylines now its all about the blair waldorf show..
@maria Blair chose to be in a loveless marriage and she got it.
@AmyGirl Once a cheater, always a cheater.
@pty Maybe it wouldn't be a problem if Blair actually had any sense self respect left in her.
@superldole Agreed, they should leave if they're so upset, the writers don't really care about them.
EWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!! SERIOUSLY DAN AND BLAIRRRRRR?? COULDN'T BE MORE PREDICTABLE, ANYWAY. I USED TO LIKE BLAIR BUT HONESTLY SHE'S BECOMING SUCH A MARTIR WITH THAT PROMISE, AND SHE NOT WANTING HER FAMILY IN A BANKRUPT.
CHUCK! YOU ARE THE LOVE OF MY LIFE, HONESTLY!! BUT IT MAKES ME SAD THAT ALL THE GOOD MAN HE HAD BECOME IS GOING TO HELL BECAUSE THAT AWFUL STUPID KISS BETWEEN BLAIR AND DAN.
@ AmyGirl - fair enough. I have nothing to say against the points you made just now, and well said.
Let's hope the Chair and Dair and Blair (and even perhaps Louis! lol) shippers - all agree to disagree, with mutual respect even as each hopes that their ship eventually sees the shore/sets sail.
As always, it all depends on the whims and fancies of the GG writers, who so brilliantly know how to keep us hooked, week after week! :)
@ S - thanks - glad to know someone's reading my comments :)
I feel bad about getting so invested in Dair - knowing how the writers will make Chair endgame - but sigh! somehow the whole vibe of how they didn't get along at first, then became friends, then fell in love - that always gets me. We need more of that in a cynical world! With so little time given to Dair, look at how much support they have amassed. In spite of five seasons of Chair, Dair has stood their ground, like an unsinkable ship. Dair FTW4EVR :)
AND was single for long enough to receive some character development and therapy. Then, Dare to Dair.
@Dair For Ever
Not everyone hating on Dair likes Chair. I know I certainly don't. I hate both ships. I'd like to think of myself as Team Blair (aka Blair be single) but I dislike Blair so... call it what you want.
I did catch the end of the episode, so I know that Louis doesn't love Blair. Blair doesn't love Louis. The feeling is mutual, right (although GG loves to make Louis seem like the evil villain)? Why shouldn't Blair involve herself with other men? Because I have always thought Blair to be the kind of "Hopeless Romantic" girl who stays with one guy. Who wants to be with that one guy. Blair being romantically involved with 2 guys (I'm not counting Louis, which is pretty generous considering they're married!) is so OOC I find. I would be open to a Dair relationship if she had severed off ties with Louis and Chuck.
@SuperIdole, Kudos, for the flattery.
In terms of reality, the realism that might be applied to Dan and Blair's future relationship can be based in most consensual friendships to romantic entanglements. After all, 42% of Americans have admitted (mostly on dating website surveys) of previously or currently dating a working colleague or friend so to speak. In the United Kingdom it is closer to 1 in 5, while there are similar studies in other countries. Some of those relationships fail to workout due to conflict of interest such as a supervisor to employee relationship while college/university romances work well too. Such is the case of both Dan and Blair attending NYU.
Now, I expect a dissertation as a rebuttal. Thank you...
@PTY First I must admit that I always read your comments and through that I know your are really smart/intelligent in all sorts of a way. (to bad you are a Chair fan, take that as compliment:)
But my point was this and also one of my favorit equote: "There is no such thing as bad publicity except your own obituary."
We have sit through this Chair angst love for years now and like to have this underdog lovestory played before my eyes and whatever happens in the end I don't care, just as long I will have this played out.
Buy that I mean Blair and Dan together and I don't mean to sound spiteful about it.
@Dair for Ever
Brilliant comments! Keep posting. :)
In another discussion I read Chair shippers saying that the GG writers themselves have apparently tweeted that Blair is not herself this season. And Chair shippers agree, giving that as the reason for Dair.
Ok - I have read comments from Chair shippers about how Chuck has grown, matured, redeemed himself etc. by now. So, by your own account, Chuck's character has evolved i.e. it has changed i.e. he is doing things that can be called "out of character" with what he used to be. But in Chuck's case you find it all positive and realistic - people grow, people can change and become better!
Fine, but suddenly in Blair's case it's out of character! Are you kidding me! You can't have it both ways, Chair shippers!
Blair has also evolved and matured and thankfully, that maturity is making her realize her childish infatuation for Chuck cannot hold a candle to her deep rooted, adult, emotionally mature feelings for Dan. That is a character progression right there.
The hypocrisy of some Chair shippers amazes me! I am 10000% sure that if Blair had kissed Chuck instead, not a single comment about morals, and married women kissing others would have been made! Ha ha! Suck it. Dair kissed and it was SPECTACULAR.
Also Chair and "morals" are oxymorons, given their past antics. Seriously, doesn't the irony of you guys suddenly playing the moral card strike you!?
This episode fell short for me, again.
pros: Nate in a St. Judes uniform, Georgina and her husband's relationship, Blair's red dress, Nate finally having to work for a girl, and all of the flash backs to season 1.
cons: Pretty much everything else. Now I have to say I am a Chair fan, but that is not why I am upset about the Dair kiss. Dair are cute together. They are fun to watch and they have similarities. Back in Season four I even wanted them to be together. I think that the problem is not Dan, but Blair. She doesn't know what she wants. I can't believe that someone who clames to be soooooo in love with Chuck can then kiss Dan like that. It's unrealistic and sloppy writing. If they want a love triangle to work then it has to make sense. I will root for Dair only when Blair renounces her love for Chuck, untill then this show is not going to get any better for me. I also really miss Derena, but I guess I'm the only one:/ Oh and any episode with Ivy in it deserves at most 3 stars.
AmyGirl, my guess is that you missed the very end of the infamous wedding episode.
To all the Dair haters out there, that is your opinion. I have watched for many years believing Chuck and Blair belonged together, but to play games and everything else they had to do to actually get the other interested, hmmm... Makes me see that Dan did not have to fake or try hard to get Blair. They actually have a lot in common, as in real life, that goes alot farther than mere attraction.
I'm not saying they should get married, but a little romance would be nice.
Also the promo for the next episode disgusts me too. Blair, why don't you go "Kiss, Kiss, Kiss" your husband? They made that girl so fickle.
Look, there are many people like myself who hate that kiss NOT because of "EWWW DAIR, CHUCK FTWWW!". It's because of HOW SCREWED UP BLAIR IS. She cheated on Louis with Chuck, told Chuck she loved him and always would, MARRIED Louis still loving Chuck, yet expecting Louis to love her too, and now Blair, a married woman, has feelings for another guy? What kind of convoluted storyline is that? I can believe things I shouldn't when it comes to TV shows, but this? Really?
I'm not hating on Dair. I'm really not. If the writers can somehow MAKE me want to ship it (because I don't. I don't ship anyone. Blair is too unstable to be in a relationship, LET ALONE IN THREE). Then fine. But don't make Dair happen this way, if I were a Dair fan I'd be pissed.
DARE TO DAIR!
Comments from some Chair shippers - I will never watch the show again, Dan is disgusting etc. - makes me wonder why they are such masochists!
There is not one seriously damaging or disgusting thing that Dan has ever done, and especially against Blair - nothing! On the contrary he has been so supportive and steadfast and loyal and caring - what is there to not love in Dan as a boyfriend!?
Unless of course you are a masochist and want your life to be full of jealousy and games and sleeping around and cheating and one-upmanship and - lest I forget - the occasional possibility of physical assault - which is what Chair was and their life together will be.
I for one look forward to a loving, passionate, nourishing, progressive relationship in my own life and that is why I SO love Dair and will be rooting for them all the way. I hope that the writers will not succumb to hackneyed plot lines and try to make Chair end game. If any one deserves to be end game it is Dair. Dair FTW!
@ Jonas: ever heard of the difference between good and bad critics? Unless you follow Oscar Wilde saying that it was worst not be talked about than been talked about (even if it was bad), then I fail to see how so many commentaries on the negative side are good for this show.
And during these almost 24 hours I have read comments on both sides saying Chuck or Dan are treating Blair like property on those snippets of conversation we have seen, if we continue with this discussion it will end up being a wash with both of them treating her like property. Maybe they are both possesive and/or with competitive nature while discussing about women.
