As much as people lived for this couple and even strived to be as great as them, some fans simply cannot look past the very toxic reality of their relationship.
Not only were they manipulative of each other, but also physically and emotionally abusive throughout the show. As much as we want to love them, the truth is that they had some pretty awful experiences together. However, as their constant manipulative games and challenges increased, the two soon became drawn to one another. Initially, fans grew to love the couple for their teamwork and support of one another.
Several of their moments together included slapping, shoving, and occasional hair-pulling. Whereas some fans saw this behavior as nothing serious, others recognized the signs of an unhealthy relationship being promoted on TV. This commonality could include a shared interest in music, career, life aspirations, etc. However, the one thing that brought Chuck and Blair together was their mutual love for manipulation.

The foundation of their relationship together began with their interest in playing mind games and getting their way. Their manipulative games even served to keep their relationship interesting in season 3 when they finally got together. The writers of Gossip Girl decided to take their time to build their feelings for each. This is definitely a smart move to make audiences tune in each week-- except their romantic growth took an entire season.
Granted, we love suspense, but this was too much. Either they were too prideful to be the first to say it or a situation got in the way of the confession. In yet another case of the two not being able to be together, they decide to wager which one of them would bring the best date for the other.
For the annual Snowflake Ball, the two former lovers tried to prove how well they knew each other. The prizes for their victory? Yes, Dorota the housekeeper-- an entire human being.
Though usually portrayed as a confident young woman, she still had moments of doubting her ability to be successful. Her self-esteem took a considerable blow when she failed to get into Yale University, her dream school.
Also, while trying to find her place in life, she also contended with her feelings of inadequacy with her relationship with Chuck. In fact, by season 4, her main motivation to obtain the W Magazine internship included making herself more worthy to be with Chuck. From airing her dirty laundry on Gossip Girl to abandoning her during one of their many grand gestures, he simply cannot seem to do right by her.
When he, yet again, disappointed her at the end of season three, he left for Prague and got shot. Thankfully, Eva Coupeau saved his life. However, instead of returning to his terrible life and broken relationship with Blair, he pretended to be someone else to avoid it. He went by the name Henry Price and completely made up a different backstory just to avoid his screw-ups.
The thought of losing Blair yet again drove Chuck to take some careless chances with his life. In season 5, we see him get into a motorcycle accident that left with not feeling pain. In reality, he was unable to feel any emotional pain because of Blair. You would think he would seek out a doctor or professional help to work out his issues.
Before he took the right path to recovery, he decided to deal with things Fight Club style. With both relationships hanging in the air, she discovered her pregnancy to be false and chose Nate as her partner. The site reported how Blair had been intimate with two different guys in the same week.
After being rejected by Nate for her actions, she returned to Chuck in defeated, only to have him state that he was no longer interested in her. This is how he treats someone he loves. As the years progressed, the reasoning became more unsound and eventually involved false pregnancies, faked identities, and a few princes.
During their first chance to be together back in the season 1 finale, Chuck was at fault for running away. However, Chuck got last minute cold feet and left Blair waiting for him at the helipad. Not only did he appear untrustworthy and underhanded but he seemed too focused on carnal activities as well. Think of the many times he tried to hit on someone or force himself on someone. Where is the loyalty from either of them?
Both characters usually stuck to their beliefs regardless of the negative consequences on themselves or others. We see this deeply ingrained pride when Chuck came face-to-face with losing his fortune. Once she's all dressed up in one of Jenny's designs, Dan tells her that she 'cleans up nice,' before the two proceed to the wedding together. After the ceremony, Nate, burdened by the myriad of problems with his father, tells Vanessa he's not ready to be in a relationship, and the two break up.
Later, Vanessa and Dan's friendship grows as they bond over their break-ups. Season 2[ edit ] Vanessa spends the summer redecorating Rufus's art gallery and turning the extra space into a cafe.
Nate confides in her the financial circumstances of his father's debts and although the two seem interested in each other, Nate is continuously too busy to hang out with her.
Vanessa pushes him away because of this, but he confesses that he does want a relationship with her.
