Nate Archibald is a wealthy, good-looking lacrosse player at St. Jude's school.

His mother is a French socialite and his father is a former Navy captain. Nate smokes copious amounts of marijuana and was once caught and sent to rehab for buying a dimebag in the park. Tough luck on that one.

Archibald  has dated a number of girls including Jenny Humphrey, Serena, Georgina Spark, and Lexie -  but his only serious relationship has been with his on again/off again girlfriend Blair.

Although Nate was originally planning to attend Yale University and play lacrosse, he eventually left to sail across the world with his father's Navy mentor, Captain Chips White, to figure his life out.

Raina: Okay then. Escort away. There aren't really sheep there, right?
Nate: No. Just a lot of grass.

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

Gossip Girl

Chuck: I'm sorry for losing my temper the night you told me Louis proposed to you. I'm sorry for not waiting longer at the Empire State Building. I'm sorry for treating you like property. I'm sorry I didn't tell you I loved you when I knew I did. Most of all I'm sorry I gave up on us when you never did.
Blair: Thank you.
