17 Love Lessons We Learned from ‘Gilmore Girls’

Let’s face it—for a few years, Gilmore Girls probably had the hottest boys on television. And whether you watched it from the start or you’re binging on Netflix, you know that one Logan Huntzberger is irresistible. But even though Gilmore Girls had us laughing our brains out with every episode, there were still quite a few lessons taught throughout the show’s seven seasons. So here are 17 love lessons we learned from Gilmore Girls.

1. College is a great place to meet people…for many reasons.


2. Your S.O. should treat (and speak about) you with the utmost respect.


3. Being apart is going to be hard, but it’s worth it if you can see each other again.


4. Your S.O. and your best friend can definitely be the same person.


5. Your “I love you” moment with your S.O. isn’t always a fairy tale.

6. And a great S.O. will encourage you to try new things and live life to the fullest.

7. Sometimes, admiration from afar can be more painful than you think.


8. And it could definitely get uncomfortable.


9. So don’t ever be afraid to reject someone.


10. Goodbye isn’t always goodbye…

11. And if you’re meant to be together, you will find each other again. 

12. But if you start having second thoughts and want each other back, don’t write them off completely.


13. Simply put, the heart wants what it wants.


14. Sometimes, the person you want to love isn’t the person you are actually in love with…

15. And other times, your other half was there all along.

16. But at the end of the day, having an S.O. doesn’t define you...


17. Well, enough said.
