The show ran for seven seasons and showed both the main character’s evolution and their struggles in the realm of family, friendships, and romance. The chemistry between the lead actors and the many ups and downs in their lives made for a delightful comedy, evident in the show’s enduring popularity
Rory Gilmore was the quintessential American teenager. She was smart and studious and went on to study at the prestigious Yale University. Rory dated many men throughout the series, but none of them came close to being as annoying and possessive as Dean Forester, her first boyfriend she met in high school. Here are the reasons Dean Forester was the worst boyfriend to Rory:
When Rory begins her preparations to apply for major Ivy League Universities as has been her ambition for long, her boyfriend Dean becomes needy and forces her into spending more time with him instead of focusing on her college applications. He also tries to dissuade her from joining Chilton, elite private school for which she’d have to leave her hometown.
On their three month anniversary, Dean reveals that hes building a car for Rory and that he loves her and is very serious about this relationship. Rory is taken aback by this sudden revelation and hesitates to respond, as she’s not yet ready to be in a committed relationship. This leads tp dean having a childish outburst and breaking up with Rory because he felt she didn’t love him.
