HeySandyStrange March 24, 2015 Share March 24, 2015 (edited) I do see what Rory saw in Jess though. He was obviously smart, funny, cute, and well read but also played harmless (albeit illegal) pranks. His constant brooding, inability to talk, and fluctuating moods aside (and Rory did tend to push his faults aside) - I can see why a teenage girl would be interested in someone like him. Teenage hormones are a hell of a thing. You see, I think this is what has always annoyed me. I felt like Rory and Jess's relationship sort of perpetuated the corny trope of "good girl falls for bad boy" or in more realistic terms "good girl falls for jerk she thinks she can change because twu luv". Granted, I know that Jess had his good moments (mostly in his relationship with Luke) and he had reasons for being like he was, but that is how I saw it. I will say that Rory came off as more annoying and clueless to me within the context of the relationship, because I think she truly believed she could change him or that he should want to change for her. The other part of the reason I didn't care for them together because I felt like anvils were dropped on my head the entire time leading up to them getting together, like they have so much in common! they are perfect together! no one understands their love! I'm just stubborn like that. Actually, I'm starting to thing Logan was the most balanced of Rory's boyfriends/love interests. He could be spoiled and entitled, but he didn't have a huge chip on his shoulder (Jess) and he was pretty intelligent and sophisticated (Dean). Funny, because I was pretty indifferent to him during GG's run. Edited March 24, 2015 by HeySandyStrange 6 Link to comment
