With a very moving and emotional episode entitled “The Break-Up” that aired this Thursday and a small hiatus before the next episodes in November; here is my opinion and advice when it comes to Klaine.
First and foremost, Kurt never deserved Blaine and still does not to this day. Blaine showers Kurt with romance and charm and gets little in return. I love Blaine and I love Kurt but I do not think they should be together. I will admit that their relationship has changed the world, life beyond television, and for that I am truly grateful.
We see in season 4 as Kurt goes off to New York with Rachel, Blaine is left on the wayside. In one phone call, Kurt rambles on about life in New York as Blaine wants to tell him that he is running for Student Council President. Blaine is sad but understanding and moves on. When Blaine finds out that he won the election, he calls Kurt to share the news only to be ignored by Kurt as he is busy socializing with fellow coworkers. Kurt and Blaine do share a movie via Skype but when a person has a limited amount of time, watching a movie together is not the best use of it. It turns the attention on something else. Sure, you saw something together but you did not really get to talk and interact with the other person. It was mostly about the movie.
I think there was a major lesson that Kurt did not learn in Season 3. Sebastian came into the picture and tried to get Blaine away from Kurt. Kurt should know that Blaine is more than a great catch and keep his man interested, which they later agree to have sex together. There will always be guys that crush on Blaine and even though he will be loyal to Kurt, Kurt still has to do his share in the relationship. I would love to see Kurt actually give Blaine something for a change and be all romantic.
Blaine continues to bend over backwards for Kurt as he surprises him by coming to New York being lead by guilt and love. He has slipped up and cheated on Kurt. There is a double standard in Kurt’s mind. Previously, Kurt has cheated on Blaine via texting another guy that Rachel confronted him about. Just because Blaine did not find out about that makes it okay? Both of them have cheated but that does not excuse Kurt for getting that upset about Blaine cheating and later throwing away his apology note. Seeing all of what is going on, I side with Blaine. Blaine did everything he could to reach out to Kurt while he was in New York. Sometimes it works but mostly it does not because of a lack of caring on Kurt’s part. If Kurt truly cared about Blaine, he would make Blaine a priority in his life. We do what we want to do. We make priorities on how we use our time. Kurt chose to launch his career over continuing to kindle his relationship with Blaine.
Look at how far Blaine has come. He left being the Head Warbler to move to McKinley to be with Kurt. He had it all and it took gusts to throw it away and say that his relationship with Kurt was more important than all that came with Dalton Academy. Everything has been for Kurt yet Kurt reciprocates little back. Kurt needs to know and understand that he is undeserving of Blaine. In being undeserving, that love of knowing the Blaine chose Kurt over every other guy should spill out all over from within him.
What I have learned from Kurt and Blaine’s relationship is to love in a relationship how you would want to be loved. Sure, a person will have individual likes and dislikes and it may not be easy to do some of the things they like but they need to feel loved and cherished. Bend over backwards for your man and hopefully he will bend over backwards for you in return.
