The Complete Guide To Rory Gilmore's Boyfriends

"Gilmore Girls" has been my ultimate favorite show since it originally aired on the WB/CW networks. Like many other fans, I was not a huge fan of the final episode, as I felt like the writers left a lot hanging. Particularly, which guy Rory ends up with. Silly I know, but after seven seasons of watching Rory date multiple great guys, it was annoying to be left with her single.

So naturally, when it was announced that Netflix would be reviving the show for four new episodes, I could not contain my excitement! My mind immediately started spinning on the different possibilities of what would happen to each character, and who would be coming back. After months of speculation it was announced that Jared Padalecki, Milo Ventimiglia and Matt Czuchry would all be returning! That means that all three of Rory’s serious boyfriends will be back.

With that announcement, it sparked the discussion between my other Gilmore-Girls-watching friends and I: Who will Rory ultimately end up with?

Well, I’ve broken down the main points for each guy below.

Team Dean

Dean was the sweet first boyfriend that Rory needed. They had a good relationship from the start, and he was very protective and supportive of her.

Remember when he came to Chilton to visit her? "I love you, you idiot."

Team Jess

I won't lie to you, I have always been a Jess fan so this one might be a little biased. While Jess originally comes off as the tough bad boy who doesn't care about anything, he totally opens up to Rory. They have a great connection, and they like all of the same books and movies. They are willing to try new things for each other. Rory definitely helps him become a better person, and he helps her explore new things.

Just look how cute they are:

Remember that time she skipped school to visit him in New York and he takes her to this cool record store, which she falls in love with? Yeah that was cute.

Then several seasons later when she visits him in Philadelphia? I think I see a pattern here.

He appreciates everything she did for him, even years later when they aren't together.

Never forget that smirk.

Team Logan

Logan was a thrill seeking, exciting, "trust fund baby." (Full disclosure: I hate Logan, so this is very hard for me to write). However, he did genuinely care for Rory, and wanted a life with her. He tried his best to help her succeed, and used his connections to help her land an internship with her dream newspaper.

Their first "date" in "I jump, you jump, Jack" was one of the most unconventional and fun things I've ever seen.

— So motivational — But look at the way he looks at her.

He appreciated her brain and her interests, not just her looks.

So are you Team Dean, Jess or Logan?

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
