I have never seen the show Gossip Girl and can’t tell you a thing about the show except apparently the use of the letters XOXO is abundant. Courting can be fun and exciting, but from a recent poll taken over martinis (four), girlfriends agree that unless you are close (i.e. have been dating for some time and intimate), signing a text or email XOXO in the very beginning is just plain cheesy and creepy. Daters Beware.
