I often describe my perfect man as being Luke Danes. I still haven’t found him yet. I should probably be more specific and say “I want Luke Danes minus all of the season 6 & 7 nonsense”. However, whenever I describe him to other people it seems like they are shocked that I want to date someone like that. I guess I just see all of the positives: the ruggedness, owning a diner and always having food around. Someone who’s stable and likes small town life. Plus, he’s always doing sweet things for Lorelai.
What other people see is someone who is grumpy. Someone who has trouble showing affection. I’m slightly sarcastic and love how he just grumbles that “the moment’s here” when he’s going to propose. So, for me, even though he’s slightly grumpy he is still a step above anyone else; even if they have a sunnier disposition. However, a real life Luke Danes might not be as apt to make over the top gestures like building a pond so I could ice skate. In that case, it would just be mostly grumpiness and really that guy isn’t that hard to find. Yes, I’ve thought about this way too much. What do you think, would Luke’s grumpiness bother you in real life?
