It’s no secret, I’m obsessed with Gossip Girl. I’m currently on season 6 and it’s killing me because part of me is torn and wants to sit down and watch every single episode and cry when it’s over and part of me wants to split each episode into ten minute increments and limit myself to one session a day and savor it for as long as possible before the breakdown that is sure to follow the series finale.
If wishing I was Blair Waldorf is wrong, I don’t want to be right. But what might sort of be a secret is that today is my real life one year anniversary with Jeff, awww. Jeff and I are just like Chuck and Blair, 100% identical clones, let me tell you why:
1. Chuck and Blair are selfish and egotistical. Jeff and I are too.
One time Jeff put on a black down jacket and told me he looked like a god. He also frequently explains to me that he has the most beautifully amazing eyes he’s ever seen. I agree that they’re pretty nice but mine are obviously better. We have this conversation fairly often. Blair and Chuck obviously have delusions of royalty, Blair actually was a Princess for a minute even (but I’m a princess all the time so maybe Queen B just wants to be me).
2. We had a really difficult time saying “I love you” for the first time.
We all remember that crazy ten episode sequence in which Chuck and Blair go back and forth trying to make the other one say “I love you” first. With Jeff and I it was pretty much the exact same thing. I think Jeff knew
I was trouble when I walked in a psycho from the start so he didn’t want to tell me he loved me too quickly so instead he just kept hinting and hinting and hinting that it might be true. “I really really really really really like you sooo much” “I think I might love you soon” “I like you a lot, like…a lot”- Actual quotes from my Prince Charming.
3. We were teenage Billionaires.
This one is so obvious I hate to even put it on the list but Jeff and I also were filthy rich preppy little brats. If you’re wondering…this does confirm it, the rumors are true, I am Taylor Swift’s long lost sister and I actually sang back up on her last album. So yes, that’s why we basically look like twin sisters.
4. We Probably moved a little too fast…
As in we started officially living together like 2 months after we started dating. I don’t think any relationship experts would advise that but for some crazy reason it’s been working and we’re both happy, and that’s really what matters right?! (Obviously as far as Chuck and B go…I’m referring to the limo situation here).
5. The Paparazzi are all over us taking Cheesy photos like this:
Whenever Jeff and I are taking a stroll through Central Park and we happen to start kissing passionately some middle schooler with a camera phone always happened to grab a shot and of course it always ends up on the gossip sites…soo embarrassing.
6. We have great taste in Champagne.
Because we’re also really rich we also love champagne. We have only the most sophisticated taste and we switch it up with the most fancy champagne all the time and we never just buy whatever is on sale at Safeway…ever.
7. We’re really scheming.
This isn’t a joke. We really are.Jeff and I have a lot of tricks up our sleeves and we’re both pretty manipulative. Sure we aren’t trying to tear families apart and end relationships and send people to jail but that’s just because we’re good people, not because we’re not capable of it…obviously.
8. We’re painfully honest with each other.
Living with one another leaves you no choice but to be honest with one another. If Jeff’s snoring…I’ll tell him, he’s called me out for wiping my hands on our bed, and both of us are calling Boo out for her garbage eating habit on a daily basis. I think this gif explains it (except in our case I’m Chuck and Jeff’s Blair)…
9. Jeff and I have severe separation anxiety. And I’m pretty sure Chuck and Blair do too.
From the first time we actually ever hung out on we’ve been in contact pretty much nonstop. Of course there have been a few exceptions but we’re both annoyingly needy and clingy people which is probably why we’re meant to be.
10. And finally (obviously): We’re head over heels in love.
Chuck and Blair are wrong for so many reasons. They’re the characters you want to hate but in the end you end up loving. At first I hated Chuck and Blair together, I was totally like “These two are both crazy self obsessed lunatics, they’re only going to cause chaos” and now I’m like “You’re both so crazy you have to be together!”. I like to think it’s the same with Jeff and I.
Was this too cheesy? Probably. But…as you can see there is virtually no difference between the relationship Blair and Chuck have and the relationship Jeff and I have. I thought it was weird too but it’s a fact of life.
Happy One Year-Iversary Jeff, In the end we’re both crazy and ridiculous and weird but,
I hope everyone is having a fabulous weekend!
