MY RANKING OF RORY GILMORE'S BOYFRIENDS
I understand this is a very hot discussion topic, and will probably be included in the next presidential debate.
- •Logan HuntzbergerI know, I know. I have battled with this for years. When we first meet him, he is a world class arrogant douche. But, as time went in, he really grew up and wanted the best for Rory. He was caring and understanding and supportive and matched her intellectually. And in the end it was Rory who ended things to follow her dreams, that didn't involve no man (you go, girl!).
- •Jess MarianoJess was the best. He was so smart and funny and had just as good of taste in books and movies and music as Rory. And he was a total bad boy in the most attractive way. Remember when he outbid Dean for Rory's basket at the bid a basket festival just to piss off Dean and spend time with Rory?! Swoon. Plus he was freaking adorable in the best Italian way possible. But he was actually not a great BF (at 17), and was pretty moody and never got along well with Lorelei. And that's not cool.
- •Dean ForresterEw Dean sucked. When he and Rory were together in high school, sure he was sweet, but also whiney and so so annoying. Plus he broke up with Rory just because she didn't say "I love you" back. Seriously?! You're 16 calm the F down. Then he gets MARRIED AT 19 and freaking CHEATS ON HIS WIFE. Come on, dude. And then he was still super whiney and annoying. Ugh, Dean.
- •BONUS: Marty Don't-Know-His-LastnameHe was so obviously in love with Rory but she just saw him as a friend, sigh. He was super cute and also funny and was a great friend for Rory, which makes me wonder what they would have been like as a couple. Alas, we'll never know.
