Gossip Girl's Dan and Blair: Will They Last?

by at . Comments

Now that Dan and Blair are a full-fledged couple (or at least clearly headed down that path, without a prenup, Chuck or Louis looming as immediate obstacles), the question becomes, when the show returns April 2:

Will it last? Or will these two quickly realize they're better as friends?

That's an open question, but their bedroom woes won't do them in.

TV Line's Michael Ausiello says that the sex problem Dan and Blair encounter on the next episode (as evidenced by the Spring 2012 Gossip Girl promo) will not necessarily be the thing that derails Dair.

"Those resourceful kids will quickly find a solution to their sad sack woes," he reveals in his weekly spoiler column, "Although I can’t really see them sustaining said solution on a long-term basis."

Hmm. Any thoughts on what that solution is? And whether it will be sustainable?

This is just one person's opinion, mind you, but it's likely to be shared by many who just can't envision Dair together for good. On the flip side, many fans see them as the sole reason for the show at this point.

Don't forget there's that on-set kiss that is allegedly from the episode after April 2, so even if they do end the romance, it may not be imminent. Anyway, what do you think? Comment, and vote, below!

Dair: Will it last?

cont. That vow in which blair said spoke of how much it really understood her as a person. When i learned at the end it was Dan who wrote it, i thought that they might have a real shot of becoming a couple. I dont know, but seeing Dan together with Blair made her less insecure about herself (just look how easily Dan made Blair realize that other people's comment about him becoming more highbrow doesn't matter, and neither should it affect Blair's view of herself) I like how he empowers her in a positive way and i think from all the deceptions and generally, pain that blair has gone through, i think she deserves a person like Dan who wouldn't make her feel like she needs to compete with (in terms of achievement or power over a relationship, because as he said, they are a 'team') and for all his curly, unkempt hair and brooklyn habits, i think Dan was the only one ever who made Blair experience a normal relationship.

I have been a GINORMOUS fan of chuck and blair since the beginning, they were the only couple i was watching/pinning for ever since this show began. I love how they try to outsmart each other, and seriously, it is true wat they say about chuck and blair sharing this magnetic field of attraction and connection. But the subtle introduction of Dan into blair's life in season 4 was really...really subtle in the truest sense of the
word. I thought at first it was the usual Dan( him being too good even for his self) taking care of someone who's in deep need of help (even if it was Blair who has been mocking every aspect of his life for years) Then when Dan began falling for blair i kinda thought that his feelings were pretty cute (and harmless, really) and i started cheering for him in my own silent way (haha), but i finally acknowledge the whole Dan/Blair thing when Dan wrote that wedding vows for Blair. That vow in which blair said spoke of how much it really understood her as a person. When i learned at the end it was Dan who wrote it, i thought that they might have a real shot of becoming a couple. I dont know, but seeing Dan together with Blair made her less insecure about herself (just look how easily Dan made Blair realize that other people's comment about him becoming more highbrow doesn't matters, and neither should it affect Blair's view of herself) I like how he empowers her in a positive way and i think from all the deceptions and generally, pain that blair has gone through, i think she deserves a person like Dan who wouldn't make her feel like she needs to compete with (in terms of achievement or power over a relationship) and for all his curly, unkempt hair and brooklyn habits, i think Dan was the only one who made Blair experience a normal relationship.

Seriously, Blair and Dan are the worst idea for a GG couple, Even more so than Dan and Georgina... Dan and Blair are two characters not only with nothing in common, they have absolutely no Chemistry, seeing them kiss made me feel sick,. At least Chuck and Blair had Chemistry, i Haven't watched GG since i saw them get together And there is no way i'm watching it now, because i don't want to see them in bed together. They won't last because the shows big guys will realize this too, Dair, is a horrible idea and Couple. At this point no wonder gg is looking at getting canned, it's because of this crap, trying to force disgusting relationships on the fans.. And seriously hat the hell is with everyone on the show having sex, the only people that haven't slept together are step or real sibling..

Dan and Blair need to be the true couple.They have an odd relationship but I believe that is why they work out so good.They have hurt each other by pranks but they also built that on true friendship and love for each other.I would like to see at least one beauty and geek to end up as a married couple and that is dan and Blair.Long live DAIR.

Gossip Girl Quotes

And who am I? That's one secret I'll never tell ... You know you love me. XOXO, Gossip Girl

Gossip Girl

Blair: Fashion is the most powerful art there is. It's movement, design and architecture all in one. It shows the world who we are and who we'd like to be. Just like your scarf suggests that you'd like to sell used cars.
Dan: Vanessa gave me this scarf.
