It's obviously no secret to Gilmore Girls fans that Lorelai Gilmore holds the titles of best mom, best friend, and best quipper in Stars Hollow — just like it's no secret that the eldest Gilmore girl had a hard time protecting her heart when it came to dating. Her boyfriends were an eclectic bunch of guys — from diner owner Luke, to Rory's dad Christopher, to Rory's oh-so-charming English teacher Max Medina. Each one of the guys Lorelai dated over Gilmore Girls ' seven seasons had their merits, so you would be forgiven for falling for more than one of Lorelai's boyfriends. (I mean, she even had a brief fling with a pre-Mad Men era Jon Hamm!) However, in the game of choosing which of Lorelai's boyfriends is your favorite, you either play... or never find out what your choice says about your personality.
Are you a Luke girl? Did you swoon over a young Billy Burke's Alex? Did you find Jason's quirks charming? Or were you team Christopher to the bitter end? Whatever side you fall on, it's certain to tell us a little bit about who you are — just like Lorelai's taste in men revealed so much about her.
So, let's delve into Lorelai's little black book and find out which boyfriend you loved the most — and, most importantly, what it all means.
1. Max Medina
If you loved the Proust-reading, 1,000 yellow daisies-giving Max, chances are that you're a hopeless romantic. A lover of fairy tales and classical music, you possess both a strong sense of whimsy, and an appreciation for art. Like Max, you don't give up on anything without a fight — but when your heart is broken, it takes a long time to mend.
2. Christopher Hayden
You have a bit of a Peter Pan complex. There are a lot of things on your to do list — see the world, buy a motorcycle, write a book — but growing up is not one of them. Your childlike enthusiasm makes you the center of attention wherever you go, and people love being around you because you always have an adventure on the horizon and they want to join in. Sometimes your vagabond spirit wreaks havoc on other people's emotions, though, so don't forget that it's OK to look back even as you keep chasing your dreams.
3. Alex Lesman
Laid back is your middle name (probably not literally, but if it is, your parents were evil geniuses). You have a wicked sense of humor and a love for nature. You go wherever life takes you with a smile on your face. Seriously, what is your secret?
4. Jason Stiles
Are you me? OK, assuming there are other Jason fans out there, you have a lot of quirks — some would say a plethora of quirks. While you may seem weird to others, the truth is you are marching to a beat only you can hear. Sure, it's a weird, improvisational jazz beat, but it's yours, and it's special. Sometimes you put work before your social life, and you almost always prefer a quiet dinner in to a wild evening out. Making connections isn't easy, so you might have to loosen up a little if you don't want to spend the rest of your life with a dog who moves a little to the left.
5. Luke Danes
You are incredibly loyal to everyone in your life. Family means everything to you and that includes the family you choose. Like Luke, you put up a grumpy front on occasion and you pretend not to care as much as you do — but, absolutely no one believes this front, because they have seen you volunteering at your local soup kitchen, lending a helping hand to the neighbors, and whipping up scrambled eggs for last-minute guests. Your fatal flaw is that you don't let others help you as much as you help them, though — so be sure to remember to trust that the people in your life love you as much as you love them.
