Sure, no couple is perfect, but it’s safe to say that Glee’s Kurt (Chris Colfer) and Blaine (Darren Criss) have the kind of loving and supportive relationship that we all wish we had in our own lives. That’s why we firmly believe that a year apart won’t faze them one bit. With that in mind, here are five reasons why Klaine are in it for the long haul. Kurt and Blaine for the win!
Then again, if you’re not the schmoopy-schmoopy type, and you prefer an ice-cold glass of reality, then you should also check out our five reasons why Klaine might not make it past high school. Gotta look at both sides of the coin, right?
1. They genuinely want the best for each other.
It was during Season 3, Episode 3: “Asian F” — as Kurt brought a huge bouquet of flowers to congratulate Blaine for getting the part of Tony — when we realized that these two want the best for each other, even if it’s at their own expense. And they’re always finding ways to cheer each other up, like Blaine comforting Kurt after last year’s prom queen debacle, or Kurt wearing a dog puppet in this season’s Episode 15: "Big Brother." And if you ask us, all of life’s problems should be solved by puppetry.
2. Blaine can afford to regularly fly to NYC. (Does JetBlue go to Lima?)
Clearly, it’s a tad unrealistic for Kurt to expect Blaine to fly into New York every single weekend (that is, unless Blaine really loves tiny bags of pretzels). But Blaine’s family has money — hence, he had no trouble affording Dalton — so visiting on a semi-regular basis shouldn’t be a problem. And given that Kurt and Blaine were able to stay together last season while they were both at different high schools, we’re thinking (hoping?) that being a couple states away isn’t too different.
3. They constructively talk out their problems.
Maybe not every tiny problem between the couple got solved in Emma’s office during Season 3, Episode 17: “Dance With Somebody,” but the fact that they were able to calmly discuss their issues was a great sign. We also admire the way they discussed their argument involving Blaine’s lascivious urges in Season 3, Episode 5: “The First Time.” Granted, they probably wish they could just solve all their problems by singing, but for some reason, singing doesn’t always cut it.
4. Blaine will be in New York once he’s graduated.
For Finchel, the issue of Rachel (Lea Michele) moving to NYC was a big deal, since Finn and Rachel are very different, and Finn (Cory Monteith) didn’t know if he saw himself thriving in New York. However, while Blaine and Kurt aren’t carbon copies of each other, they both have similar passions, so it’s easy to see Blaine happily pursuing a career in NYC. And sure, Blaine and Sebastian (Grant Gustin) will both be in Lima for a year, but “evil Sebastian” has been replaced by “nice Sebastian,” right? (We hope?)
5. It’s simple: They’re Kurt and Blaine. And they’re meant to be — trust us!
This one just comes down to that feeling when you know something is right, which is how we feel about Klaine. They might not be the show’s most solid couple (we’re guessing that Mike [Harry Shum Jr.] and Tina [Jenna Ushkowitz] pretty much have that title on lockdown), but they’re pretty close to it, and their relationship keeps surprising us in all the right ways. Heck, Kurt even told Blaine (in Season 2, Episode 18: “Born This Way”) that he’ll “never say goodbye” to him, and we’re gonna hold him to that!
