Lorelai Gilmore is one of the main characters on Gilmore Girls who lives in the fictional Stars Hollow Connecticut. She is Rory’s mom and Emily and Richard’s daughter. She had Rory when she was quite young and left her wealthy and somewhat overbearing family to make it on her own. They still haven’t forgiven her for making that decision and constantly hold it against her.
Lorelai leads a pretty solitary life, but is surrounded by a cast of characters that loves her. First off is Rory her daughter. They are very close. This is partly because of the age difference. There are a few times on the show when she has to play the Mom card instead of just being the friend.
Her best friend is Sookie. They work at the Independence Inn together. They balance each other out pretty well, with Sookie being the dreamer and Lorelai being the more pragmatic one.
Lorelai is also a dreamer and eventually they start their inn together. She is also somewhat of a fashion icon with a quirky sense of style that would be really affordable for other people to emulate.
As far as her love life goes, there are lots of different men in her life. Max Medina is her fiancé at one point. The ever present Luke Danes who makes her coffee is always supporting her. The less stable Christopher Hayden is Rory’s father and bounces in and out of the show.
Lorelai Gilmore has a really vivacious personality with a sense of humor that a lot of people don’t understand. I think the best part about her is that she always seems to just be who she is unapologetically. She lives the life she wants to live even if it doesn’t make sense to anyone else. Lorelai Gilmore is a fictional character who also has a lot of very human flaws and assets.
