16 Times Dean Forester Was The Worst Boyfriend On "Gilmore Girls"

#TeamJess forever.

Let's be honest: All of Rory's boyfriends had their flaws (and so did Rory). But whether you're Team Jess or Team Logan, I think we can all agree on one thing: Dean totally sucks.

The WB

I know he was just a teenager and all, but he was also supposed to be "the perfect first boyfriend." And he was really just AWFUL. Here are some of his worst moments:

1. First, when he guilted Rory for focusing on her schoolwork instead of him:

The WB

2. When he was jealous of Tristan and Rory playing Romeo and Juliet for their English class assignment, so he literally sat in on every rehearsal:

3. When he walked in on Rory having dinner with Jess and Paris and completely lost his shit:

4. When he broke up with Rory for not being ready to say "I love you" on their three-month anniversary:

The WB

5. When Rory told him she'd broken her arm while she was out with Jess and he literally kicked a duffel bag over in anger:

6. When he couldn't understand why The Donna Reed Show was sexist...

7. ...or how Rory could possibly have her own opinions:

8. When Rory was busy and not answering her phone, so he called her 14 TIMES in one evening:

9. When Rory went on a picnic with Jess and he acted like it was the absolute end of the world:

10. When Rory told him she wanted to spend the night alone and he just came over anyway:

11. When Rory asked him to the school dance and he acted like he was too cool for it:

The WB

12. When he ambushed Rory about their future immediately after her big Harvard meeting:

The WB

13. When he broke up with Rory in front of everyone in the middle of the dance marathon (his reasoning wasn't wrong, but still — in front of everyone?!):

The WB

14. When Rory tried to apologize to him for how their relationship ended and he was just kind of a jerk about it:

The WB

15. And finally, when he cheated on his wife with Rory (TBH, they were both trash for this)...

The WB

16. ...and was the absolute worst husband to Lindsay:
