I think that one of the most poignant things that a Gilmore Girl can teach you is that sometimes you have periods where you’re alone. This is better than being with the wrong person. Both Lorelai and Rory are quite attractive. They could probably get any guy in Stars Hollow, really, any guy that they wanted. Instead, they seem to wait a little bit of time between each relationship. They don’t tend to do a lot of casual dating, but they do go from relationship to relationship.
However, we do see Lorelai be by herself for very long periods of time. This doesn’t mean that she’s lonely. Instead, she’s just very busy. She’s getting her life together, so she can be in a place where she can be with someone, someday. This is always her ultimate goal. However, she does spend a lot of time at Friday dinners with her parents. Of course a lot of time goes into raising Rory. Then she starts her own business. She never really sits around and is sad that she is alone. This is one of the reasons why I think that so many men on the show are attracted to her.
