I was all for Serena and Dan before Dan became submersed in the UES, and more importantly, before he became her stepbrother. Yes, Dan being an outsider is what kept them apart, but it's also what brought them together. Like he said in his description of the perfect date, that he would "take her somewhere where no one cared that she was Serena van der Woodsen." In his Brooklyn loft lifestyle, that was definitely the case. But now that he's evolved more into an Upper East Sider, I'm not sure.
Plus seriously...he's her stepbrother. I don't care if it's not blood, that's still weird.
