The Santana-Puck Relationship is the relationship between Santana Lopez and Noah Puckerman, most commonly referred to as Pucktana.

Although they stopped dating in Acafellas, the third episode of Season One, they still had an attraction to each other with a "friends with benefits" agreement and they seemed to have begun dating again from Never Been Kissed to Furt. They have been friends from then on.


At the beginning of Season One, Santana and Puck appear to be in a stereotypical cheerleader-jock relationship. They are both members of the Celibacy Club and Glee Club despite having reputations of being among the more promiscuous and popular students at the school. It is made clear they have a mutual attraction in several episodes. Although they were not officially a couple any more, they remained lovers until at least Furt where Santana claimed she was dating Puck, and Quinn retorted that she was "getting naked" with Puck. Santana was the one who ended the relationship, but she continued having feelings for him, because in the episode Hairography, she got jealous of Quinn and Puck and in Laryngitis Santana was jealous when Mercedes dated Puck. She did not, however, go after Rachel when she was dating Puck. Santana does go after Lauren Zizes when Puck begins showing interest in her. Although Santana has shown her willingness to hold on to him, Puck has never defended Santana or gotten jealous when she was dating someone else - showing that for him, the relationship was never much more than just physical.

Their relationship as lovers seems to end altogether in Season Two, as Santana goes through relationships with Sam Evans and David Karofsky while secretly pining for Brittany, and Puck dates Lauren.

In Season Three Santana has come to realize that she is a lesbian and in love with Brittany, and Puck is focusing on being in his daughter Beth's life and the resulting changes in his relationships with Quinn and Shelby. Though they do not interact as often as in previous seasons, they are both cast in West Side Story, playing the couple Anita and Bernardo. Puck generally seems supportive of helping Santana come to terms with her sexuality and joins the Glee Club in helping her come out as a lesbian.


Season One


Puck mentions how much he likes the Cheerios skirts and that when Santana leaned over, he "could see her ovaries." While in the Celibacy Club meeting, Puck is seen joking around with Santana with a balloon while she is trying to get away.


Puck and Santana are now a couple, as they are seen making out in the school hallway. Later, Santana breaks up with Puck, because she thinks he can't support her financially. Puck states that he prefers older women anyways.


Puck begins to date Rachel, and when he is singing Sweet Caroline to her, Santana is visibly jealous, along with Finn. Rachel breaks up with him because of his obvious feelings for Quinn, and he who admits the reason he joined Glee is because Quinn was part of the club.


After Quinn babysits with Puck, Santana gets jealous and confronts Quinn, telling her to stay away from her man and that "asking someone to babysit with you is super 90s" which could also mark her jealousy of Quinn spending time with Puck. She also mentions that she and Puck were sexting while he was babysitting with Quinn, who checks Puck's phone and discovers it was true. The two are also dance partners for the Hair/Crazy in Love performance. While babysitting, Puck and Quinn are seen at one point holding hands. However, he is sexting with Santana during the babysitting.
