I'm not a Lorelai hater, but IMO she was at her most dislike-able when she was dealing with Rory's school-age boyfriends. She got involved with Dean in a way which bordered on creepy, asking him on his first date with Rory along with her mother, pining because she didn't get to hear every detail of their first kiss, stalking Dean while he was at work, giving Dean advice on how to win her daughter over when she is clearly more interested in another boy, telling him that THEY didn't have to break up just because he and Rory had, and so on. (That Dean accepted this level of interference in his love life from his girlfriend's mother is quite incredible - I'm sure Rory wouldn't have tolerated any of this from Dean's father!). With Jess, Lorelai acted like a romantic rival, fighting to get her own share of Rory's affection and attention, to the point where she is viciously and childishly pleased to have unfairly run Jess out of town.
