If Gossip Girl taught us anything, it’s that Manhattan is a very small island.
That’s the only logical explanation as to why this group of beautiful, well-connected characters dated all the same people. Pretty much every possible pairing of characters was in a relationship at one point, including those who were technically step-siblings.
Alas, so are the scandalous lives of Manhattan’s elite! While we may never understand why it wasn’t awkward for Blair to share so many exes with her best friend Serena, at least it was entertaining to watch the drama unfold across six seasons. And, for as many romances as there were on the show, there were certainly some that we endeared ourselves to more.
In fact, the greatest TV personality test you can take may be in identifying which Gossip Girl ship was your favorite. Check below to see what your preferred pairing says about you. XOXO!
If you still swoon over Chuck telling Blair he loves her for the first time, then you’re someone who loves to live epically. You always throw lavish birthday parties and believe in dressing up for every possible occasion, even if it’s just a dinner out with friends. You tell the best stories, even if your friends sometimes wonder if they’re a teensy bit exaggerated. You’ll never tell.
You live your life like a Taylor Swift song—specifically, the Taylor Swift song “Mine.” You’re a hopeless romantic but you don’t need a royal to come sweep you off your feet—you’re happy with the childhood friend turned something more. Baking cookies is your favorite hobby and you’ve never said a bad word about a friend, even after putting “You know I love her but…” in front of it.
You are a literary purist who knows that Blair and Nate were together in the books. You get really mad when people say they don’t like that Harry ended up with Ginny in Harry Potter, too, because they did not get the full picture from the movies!
You’re the go-with-the-flow friend who never gets into any drama because you just don’t see the point in it. You like good conversation and don’t really want to go anywhere where you can’t wear a hoodie.
You have a bit of a rebellious streak and really, really hate being told “no.” When you want something, you go for it unapologetically, be it a good grade or 1,000 likes on Instagram.
You’re a big believer in fate. You are constantly on your CoStar app and love to send friends inspirational quotes. Some friends may say that you daydream too much, but you know your best ideas come from when you’re lost in thought.
You love sparring with an intellectual equal, and constantly watch political debates on TikTok. You hate being wrong, but what you hate more is someone who will just let you be right to avoid confrontation. What fun is that?!
You think the world would be better off if everyone just found some common ground, and are the peacemaker between your friends. You’re also the person who loves to bring different groups together, be it for a joint game night with the swim team and theater club (you’re president of both, naturally) or a big birthday party where everyone can mingle.
