Glee has been off the air now for several years. Show creator Ryan Murphy has moved on to greener pastures with multiple successful series. Yet somehow, Glee still comes up in conversation on an almost regular basis. Even if the show has become something of a joke to some people, it still resonants with many fans. Between the catchy cover songs, lovable but kooky characters, and the many different character pairings, Glee had a lot going on. We're taking a look at some of the romantic pairings from the series to see who was perfect together and who made no sense.
10 Perfect Together: Kurt and Blaine
Kurt and Blaine begin dating in the show's second season. From the moment they meet, their chemistry is undeniable. It's no wonder that fans latched on to Glee's first official gay male couple. They have had their rough spots, sure, but ultimately, Kurt and Blaine always found their way back to one another.
Season six was probably their roughest period together with them breaking up and Blaine beginning to date someone new. Still, by the end of the series, Kurt and Blaine decided to get married rather impulsively and had a double-wedding alongside their long-time friends, Brittany and Santana.
9 Make No Sense: Rachel and Puck
The relationship between Rachel and Puck is (thankfully) very brief. It begins and ends in the same episode, although it is mentioned several times throughout the series. The main reason this pairing makes no sense is that Puck isn't a nice guy.
His character undergoes major development throughout the six seasons but in the early days when he and Rachel get together, he is still very much the "bad boy." At the time, that was enticing to Rachel. However, the main reason Puck wanted to date her is due to her being the only other Jewish person in the Glee club. That's not a good foundation for any kind of relationship.
8 Perfect Together: Rachel and Finn
Rachel and Finn were the major "it" couple on the series. Sadly, real-life circumstances got in the way when Finn's actor Cory Monteith tragically passed away. Ryan Murphy had planned to make Rachel and Finn wind up together at the end but Finn died in the show as a way to pay respect to Cory's memory.
Lea Michele and Cory Monteith were dating in real life during the series which is one of the reasons the chemistry between Rachel and Finn was always so amazing. While the couple certainly had their shortcomings, it was easy to root for them because of Rachel's initial status as an underdog and Finn's growing characterization as he went from a typical jock to someone with more substance.
7 Make No Sense: Artie and Tina
Artie and Tina were initially cute but it became increasingly obvious the longer that they dated that they lacked chemistry, they had little in common, and their relationship was based on several lies. Tina lied about having a stutter and Artie was prone to doing stupid teenage boy things like making sexist jokes and even neglecting Tina for long periods of time because he got caught up in video games and other activities.
At the end of the day, they were both better off moving on as neither was really mature enough to be in a relationship at the time and Tina wound up being a better match for Mike.
6 Perfect Together: Will and Emma
Will and Emma are one of the few notable adult couples on the show. They both had crushes on each other from the very beginning but initially, Will was still married to Terri and Emma began dating Ken. Over time, the two found they couldn't stay away from one another and finally got into a relationship.
Will was one of the few people who genuinely gave Emma the kindness, affection, and patience she deserved. While Will needed a partner that wouldn't tell him tons of lies like Terri did. In the end, the two of them get married in a sweet ceremony and it's easy to root for them.
5 Make No Sense: Finn and Quinn
On paper, Finn and Quinn made perfect sense. Finn was the school's quarterback and Quinn was the head cheerleader. It's a teen cliché match made in heaven. But in reality, the two of them just never had much in common. They were together more for aesthetics and reputation than because they genuinely liked one another in a romantic way.
That said, they did care for each other in a real way and made good friends later on but as a romantic couple, Finn wasn't allowed to be himself and Quinn still didn't know who she was, the relationship held them back in many ways.
4 Perfect Together: Brittany and Santana
Brittany and Santana were best friends first before they ever became girlfriends. But the affection Santana felt for Brittany had been there since the beginning of the series. Fans were thrilled when the two of them finally got together.
Although there were some rough patches throughout their relationship such as some biphobia from Santana towards Brittany and the two of them dating other people, ultimately fans always believed they were fated to be together and at the end of the series they finally got their wish with a beautiful double-wedding between "Brittana" and "Klaine."
3 Make No Sense: Will and Terri
To be fair, Terri wasn't necessarily right for anyone since she was something of an antagonist on the series but she generally was not a very happy woman. Even before the baby mania and her lies about being pregnant started, Terri was constantly complaining to Will about the way they lived.
She was never satisfied and often took out her frustrations with her husband. Not everything was Terri's fault either since Will so obviously held a torch for Emma but obviously, the straw that broke the camels back was when Terri thought it would be a good idea to fake a pregnancy and plot to steal a teenager's baby.
2 Perfect Together: Jesse and Rachel
Even though Finn and Rachel were a great couple, there was something so effortlessly charming about Jesse St. James and his relationship with Rachel. From the beginning, this pairing became a dark horse contender for one of the favorite couplings on the show.
The wars between Finn x Rachel fans and Jesse x Rachel fans got heated. At first, they seem sweet, but then Jesse turns on her with Vocal Adrenaline. He returns to apologize to her later on and the two rekindle their romantic flame the show's final season and in a flash-forward, we see that they have gotten married.
1 Make No Sense: Blaine and Dave
Dave Karofsky is a very controversial Glee character, to say the least. He starts off as a homophobic bully who then morphs into someone who is secretly gay and uses homophobia as a defense mechanism. Dave also struggles with depression and attempts suicide at one point.
While it was nice that Dave was able to get himself mentally healthy once again, it was strange to see him and Blaine begin dating because he used to torment Blaine. They also didn't have good chemistry and the entire thing just felt very awkward.
