Even though I own the original seasons boxed set, I loaned it to my daughter in law and never got it back. Wednesday, June 11, A look at Rory Gilmore's dating history. There's an old TV adage that says, "Happy couples aren't very interesting. That's the reason why fictional couples don't last very long - eventually, even those for whom you most fiercely rooted to get together run the risk of stagnating. If that's the case, then it's natural for a show that ran as long as Gilmore Girls did to have its two main characters go through so many relationships. In my piece on Monday where I did an overview of the show as a whole, I mentioned that Gilmore Girls tracks Rory Gilmore's entire adolescence over the course of seven seasons.
It wasn't until she began school at Chilton that her grandparents became a regular presence in her life. Her father was rarely around during her childhood years. It is stated that Lorelai had wanted Rory to attend Harvard since she was three years old. At the start of the series, she is a sophomore in high school, and when the series concludes, she is a recent college graduate.
Rory is defined by her mother's decision to leave her parents and their wealthy life behind, as Emily, Richard and Lorelai herself, put the expectations of a "great future" the one the three of them imagined for Lorelai on Rory's shoulders.
She's always applying herself scholastically and doing well when asked to perform tasks that have instructions notably she tells Mitchum Huntzberger she's always done what was asked of her, and receives a higher SAT score in maths than in verbal. Rory is an introverted, at times socially awkward person, who fares best in Stars Hollow, where she seems to feel comfortable being herself, as part of the town. For whatever reason, in spite of her nature being to plan and preferring to know what's coming ahead, Rory decides to become a journalist.
While she is commended for her hard work as a writer she falters completely in the world at journalism    somehow never realising that maybe this is not the profession for her. This could be attributed to the enormous expectations her grandparents and, inadvertently, her brilliant mother, have put on Rory, as well as Rory's biggest wish: to emulate her mother. This is substantiated by Rory's unwillingness to alter her predestined future, admit when something goes wrong or even accept that mistakes are good for her, instead feeling any "failure to comply with the prerequisites for her Gilmorian future" equal her being a failure as a person.
She is often buried in a book or newspaper during her free time. She is generally friendly and sweet, and her wide blue eyes and rosy cheeks give her a youthful, innocent appearance. Rory's story is mainly told through her studiousness, harnessed by her mother from an early age and by no means forced or rejected by Rory, but rather embraced as almost a sole identifying characteristic.

Honestly, I've never really been on board with all of the Logan hate. Before I even watched the show, one of the things that always stood out about the Gilmore Girls discussions that I skimmed over was that it eventually became filled with a bunch of "ugh, Logan" complaints. When I began to actually burn through the series, I thought I was going to hate Logan when he was first introduced too.
He was heavy on the rich guy faux charm, and the idea of him and Rory pairing up in the future didn't exactly fill me with excitement. But he quickly settles into the show - just as Rory starts to warm up to him, further reinforcing "The Theory"! Now, I can't say that I ever loved him, but he was never a detriment to the show for me.
I think that the anti-Logan brigade gets some of its fuel from the fact that the Yale years of the show featured a decline in quality in most people's opinions. He's not blessed with Dean's good looks, Jess's cool hair, or Logan's wealth, but he's such a nice dude. He's the underdog that you can root for. After his meet-gross with Rory, when she finds him naked on the ground in their dorm hallway, he quickly slides into the "Male Best Friend" slot. Then he just kind of disappears once Rory and Logan start to become a long-term couple, before returning in the final season.
In a way, the writers use him as this looming specter that symbolizes Rory's change over the course of her four years at Yale. In season four, when she was just a sweet freshman, the two of them were friends, but in season seven they couldn't manage to get along after she'd spent so many years in Logan's sphere.
Some might find him to be a bit of a jerk in the final season when he pretends to not know Rory in front of Lucy, but after being mistreated by Rory for so long, he'd built up enough goodwill in my book.
What does it say about me that I like Marty more than any other guy on Gilmore Girls?
