Oh, Nate Archibald, you were a wonderful man, but just never the right guy for any of the girls you dated on Gossip Girl. At one point, our main man Nate had both Blair and Serena fighting over him, but in the end, he ended up flying solo. I totally feel you, Nate. Despite being single in the finale, there was no denying that Nate Archibald was a total catch. He was charming, a great friend, and I mean, just look at how much of a hunk he was. We could stare into his dreamy eyes all day long... and then there are some of the best Nate Archibald moments from Gossip Girl that will always make us swoon.
There was nothing Nate could do about Blair and Chuck being undeniable soulmates, and Serena and Dan being the epitome of true love. He was never going to end up with either of these amazing ladies, even though we sure did get a lot of that love triangle action throughout the seasons. Even though he had his setbacks, Nate really was our Golden Boy who deserved love just as much as the other characters. He just couldn't find the right someone — though we did have high hopes for him after the series ended, and we're sure Nate found his true love. I mean, who wouldn't fall head over heels for this guy? Nate, you can seriously hit us up anytime.
1. When Serena And Nate Kissed At The White Party
Serena attended the white party with Nate to help him make Catherine jealous. It totally worked, because not only did they make Catherine insanely jealous, but they were also making us jealous with how cute they were together. That steamy kiss will always have a special place in our hearts.
2. When Serena And Nate Had The Cutest Water Fight
What started out as Nate trying to help Serena sober up turned into a full-on water fight. Just look at how playful and fun Nate was with Serena, and try not to smile. You'll fail. I think many of us can agree that Nate would be the perfect boyfriend to make us feel better when we're not feeling our best.
3. When Nate Confessed He Loved Serena
Nate stepped in to help Serena out with her Tripp situation in a very Prince Charming manner. He was such a good friend to her. Then, he admitted that he wanted to tell her that he loved her at the masked ball, and all of our hearts literally skipped a bit. Too bad Tripp had to come into the scene and ruin it.
4. When Nate Surprised Blair In Central Park
Nate asked Dorota where Blair's favorite spot was in Central Park so he could surprise her in the most romantic way possible. They ended up kissing in the snow, and we were all wishing we were in Blair Waldorf's shoes at that very moment. Nate knew how to pull out all the stops like a romantic comedy, and this was the final grand gesture.
5. When Nate And Blair Had The Most Perfect Prom Night
Even though it was such a sad moment knowing that Blair and Nate's relationship was really ending, we still got to see how perfect they were together. Nate Archibald truly defined our dream prom date. After all, he was prom king, and just look at him in that tux. We never wanted this dreamy scene to come to a close.
6. When Nate Asked Serena To Give Him A Chance
Nate was the good guy Serena needed. Sure, he may have done some things wrong, but those decisions were always because he cared for Serena and just wanted to do what he thought was best for her.
In this scene, Nate begged Serena to choose him and not go with Tripp, but of course, she chose wrong and didn't stay with Nate. Our hearts shattered onto the floor.
7. When Nate Seriously Spiced Up The Kitchen
Sure, it was technically just butter on toast, but how sweet is it that Nate tried to make breakfast at all? His cute attempts at making food for Serena led to more than just toast. We weren't opposed, and I guess it's true you don't have to be a chef to be good in the kitchen.
8. When Nate Came To Jenny's Rescue
Though I'm sure Jenny could take care of herself, Nate came to the rescue to save her from an inappropriate photoshoot. He cared about her, and I'm talking about the knight in shining armor kind of way. I mean, look at that kiss. Nate really was like a fairy tale prince in New York City.
