Gossip Girls: Do You Play Games in Relationships Like Chuck and Blair?

Do Tell: How Do You Play Games to Keep Relationships Alive?

Last night, our long, Upper East Side-less Summer came to a welcomed end when Gossip Girl's third season premiered. (Check out BuzzSugar for their favorite WTF moments.) While it lacked the melodrama I've come to love and expect, I was happy to see Blair and Chuck haven't let monogamy interfere with their Shakespearean scheming.

This year, instead of playing each other, they're on the same team, fooling unsuspecting girls into Chuck's arms so that scorned woman Blair can storm in and unleash her faux rage. When the girls run out, Blair and Chuck make out. It's beautiful, really.

The game is an aphrodisiac for Blair at first, who says a relationship's three-month mark is not a milestone but a gravestone, until sage Serena — the one who spent her Summer seeking her father's attention by posing for tabloids — gives Blair advice: make sure you're doing it to keep your interest and not out of fear of losing his. Not bad, S!

While games we play may not be so elaborate and evil — though we welcome your stories if they are! — staging fights in public, pretending you're meeting your significant other for the first time, or even straight-up role play are all viable ways to play games. Do you play games to keep relationships alive? And, if so, has it ever gone wrong?

No, we don't do this. Sometimes, just for giggles, if I am walking down to get groceries and he is walking up to put some away, we'll say in passing "hey baby, I'm single". It's just to be jerks, though. Not like we're aggressively trying to role play or be something else.

I have been in my relationship less than five years, we are still learning tons about each other. No need to play games or role play, the adventure is still fun enough.
