The Garys of Gilmore Girls

So I’m a little (a lot) late to the party, but I recently finished watching the entire Gilmore Girls series (I watched episodes here and there during its initial run, but really needed to start from the beginning to better understand the characters/story lines) and A Year in the Life, and thought breaking down the…

A Connection Doesn’t Equal A Gary

I have purposely avoided telling you what qualities Gary should possess. After all, we’re all different and need different things in a life mate. I still stand by this rule and always will. But there is one thing I feel compelled to state, loud and clear, and it’s this: if you feel your significant other…

Thinking Outside the Box for Gary

Gary could be staring you right in the face and you wouldn’t even know it. Sounds cliché, right? Don’t roll your eyes yet.

So brace yourself, because shit’s about to get real. There is a very real possibility the problem…

Gary is a Test of Patience

I am not the most patient person. This is something I have struggled with since, oh, probably my entire existence. I even have a tattoo of the Chinese character for patience as a reminder I constantly need it. And I always wondered when, and how, this elusive thing called patience would really, truly test me.…
