15 Lessons Serena van der Woodsen Taught Hopeless Romantics About Relationships

While Blair Waldorf had her kingdom to rule, her career, and a more-or-less perfect relationship on the side, Serena van der Woodsen had her guys. Throughout high school especially, she was defined by two things: her name and her escapades with various gentlemen callers. Through the six seasons, Serena had countless boyfriends and in between every one she struggled with “finding herself.” In the end, Serena taught us just as much about sex and the city as Sex and City did three years prior. And with that, I’ve compiled a list of 15 lessons S taught us relationships.

1. Blind dates can be okay.

image

2. And regardless of what kind of date you should always follow this advice.

image

3. Oh and don’t be afraid to eat.

image

4. And then when you start falling for someone, it’s okay to completely fall into it.

image

image

image

5. But don’t ever be afraid to ask for what you want.

image

6. And if the other person messes up, use your best judgement on forgiving them.

image

7. Also you should never be afraid to ask for forgiveness. Demanding it sometimes is ok too.

image

8. But if they’re not worth your forgiveness, tell them.

image

9. Break-ups are hard.

image

10. Sometimes you hate the person and practice saying this.

image

image

11. But then when you see them you say this.

image

12. So then you go and cry to your best friend.

image

13. And then you reach the point in the break-up where you know this is the truth.

image

image

14. And you become perfectly content with plans like these.

image

image

image

15. Until you find someone who makes every failed past relationship  make sense and who makes everything else in life worth it because they’re by your side.
