For many Gilmore’s daughters fans, Luke Danes and Lorelai Gilmore were relationship targets. Their continued success as an inward couple Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life considered one of the best events in the not-so-strong Netflix revival. Were Luke and Lorelai really perfect for each other, though? If you look closely, there were a few minutes in the original run of the show when it seemed clear that the couple was not right for each other at all.
Luke spent years kissing for Lorelai but didn’t bother to say anything
The will of Luke-Lorelai helped Lore-Lorelai guide the story of the show, but if you look at it from a different angle, he was really patient. The surly diner owner was clearly in love with Lorelai from the very beginning. He could barely stop the idea of telling his girlfriend, Rachel, that he and Lorelai were just friends. Everyone in Stars Hollow seemed to know that Luke had only eyes for Lorelai, too. However, he did not want to tell her.
Reddit users assert that Lorelai and Christopher always seemed to have more sexual chemistry than Luke and Lorelai, at least. Their short-term marriage seemed to be another proof that Lorelai could not choose between two men. If that happens, it may not have been “the man.” Eventually, Lorelai ended up with Luke; thrush Gilmore’s daughters fans all over the world. However, this does not mean that they were “relationship goals”.
