I always think that I want to date a Luke Danes. He’s so stable. However, when I really think about it, he’s also grumpy, moody, & slow to commit. Now, Lorelai is my hero, so I don’t think that she was at fault for their problems. I spend way too much time thinking about these kind of things, so here is what she might’ve done differently.
Luke needs time to process. Most of Luke & Lorelai’s problems arose because Lorelai needed an answer right then, & Luke needed time to think about it, such as when April showed up.
Luke also needs space. Although he did attend more town meetings & events when they got together, he still needed Luke time. He’s never going to be the center of attention party planner.
Honesty. It seems like whenever Christopher called, Lorelai wouldn’t mention it & it would turn into a big fight because Luke would assume that she wouldn’t hide it if it meant nothing.
So I guess I still want to date a Luke Danes, but maybe one with less issues that will still build me an ice skating rink.
