i admire veronica mars because she is smart, witty, and is a detective!
she seems like a person i'd be friends with(even though she's not a people person)
she's always down to earth and has a "smart" come-back
in that sense she's and i are very alike!
that's all i can really think of right now... but the moment i saw the first episode i knew that i would love it!

I absolutely love Lorelai Gilmore for many of the same reasons you'll see below, but my favourite female TV charcter has to be Veronica Mars.  First of all, because she's just so smart - none of the helpless female heroine here, just bad-ass, down to business, tough Miss Mars attitude.

Also, Veronica's got this incredible ability to bounce back, no matter how many appalling curve balls life invariably throws her.  It's such an inspiring thing, in a totally non-cliched way, to see someone take so many knocks, and for her to get up, a little damaged, but still strong enough to deal with it, every time.

The other most important thing about Veronica is her wonderful support network - she is so independent, and self-sufficient, but occasionally when things get too far on top of her and she has to finally look for help, she's not afraid to; even though Veronica's strong on her own, she's willing to ask for help and support when she needs it, and that's really something.

I like that Lauralai raised Rory by herself.  Rory is a great person and I love the close relationship they have together.

Why I admire Lorelai Gilmore:
Lorelai grew up with her stifling parents and when she made the "disapproving" mistake of gettting pregnant at 16 she stood up to her parents and she fought for her life and for Rory's life. She provided for Rory her entire life and was always the greatest friend in the world to her - giving us all a mother/daughter relationship we all envy. She's the greatest mother in the world, through all of the ups and downs she was there for Rory and will always be there. She doesn't care what others think.

Yeah this is a good idea.

I like both Veronica and Lorelai, they are both such good role models.  I mean think about it, a teen investigator that has gone through some much.  To me it is amazing she isn't insane, her best was killed by her best friend's boyfriends dad.  Then the whole bus thing.  Not to mention for a little while in season one, she thought that her ex-boyfriend was her brother and that her father wasn't her father.  And that her mother is a alcoholic and that that might never change.  After watching this a lot of people think they can do more because of how much she has done.  She has gone through so much in all of the seasons that what girl wouldn't want to look up to her?

Now Lorelai, a single mother at 16.  She didn't want to get married and she didn't want to live out the life that her family planned out for her.  Even if she hadn't gotten pregnant I still think she would have gone her seperate ways from her parents for a while.  She is such a role model for all those girls who may be pregnant or could soon be.  She didn't want the life she had in front of her, so she decided to be an independent woman and change something.  She raised a wonderful kid with some people's help, but I think she turned out so great because her mother was such a strong woman.  Watching her raise Rory as well as she did (mostly by herself), makes me think, what is her secret or how strong must she be on the inside?

Hello,

I admire Lorelai Gilmore because of her perseverance as a single mother to be the perfect one, and for raising such a beautiful and well-behaved child that became not only the daughter that everybody wants, but a successful and self-driven one.

Thank You.

     Lorelai Gilmore is a single mother raising a daughter on her own terms.  She did not want anyone to tell her what to do, she couldn't live a life under her mother's thumb. I admire her determination, she did not want her child to be raised in a less than loving enviorment, for that I admire her. She gave up everything she had to raise her child. She went from living the comfy life in a mansion in Hartford to the life of a maid in a potting shed in Stars Hollow. While we all love Stars Hollow, it would have been easier for her to just stay under her mother's rule, she would have been cared for. Yet, she knew she had to make a life on her own the minute the strip turned pink. She gave up everything she had, and built a life from the ground up. Full of determination and preservation, Lorelai Gilmore is a woman that many can learn from.

Take my hand and drag me head first, fearless.

I lived a life that for the most part paralells Lorelai Gilmore's life. 
She is a strong, self motivated woman, with a quick wit and lovable personality,
yet, bold enough to deal with adversity she faces, on HER terms. Raising a child on her own,
showing that children of single parent families can excel and do not fit the profile of underachievers.
 
This character is one that I would adore having as a part of MY town!  Kudos, Lorelai!

The reason why I love Veronica Mars and Lorelai Gilmore is for their quickwits, shown in two different ways.  Veronica Mars always has a snarky comment ready to show that she's always one step ahead of you; Lorelai is good for the pop culture references and her zany comments.  Both female leads are such strong characters, and two major reasons why I love both shows!

I admire Lorelai Gilmore because she is a couragous woman that managed to handle raising a daughter at the age of 16. She didn't have the help from her parents, but she did it on her own. And her hard work was worth it because Rory ended up graduating from an Ivy League school and becoming a news reporter. I hope I'm as good of a mother as she is. :)

Don't worry, I'm not forgetting. :) Bye bye, ORG.

Well I perosnally am not a fan of Veronica Mars yet because I havn't watched it before.  But one of my good friends LOVES it. We have this agreement, I will talk about Gilmore Girls to her and she will rave about Veronica Mars to me.  This is what she wrote about why she admires Veronica Mars:

I personally believe that I am THE BIGGEST fan of Veronica Mars. She’s so smart, funny, strong, and awesome in all ways!! I know that may sound a bit cliché…but it’s true. I admire how she can still fight through life, despite all she’s gone through. I wish I could use her fast-thinking detective skills and pull off those quick come backs she always uses! Its little things like that that make Veronica so cool, and inspire me to live life like she does (without all of the, well, people that I love dying part). I love you Veronica!

And I admire Lorelai because she is an amazingly strong person.  She stands up for what she believes in and doesn't give up.  It amazes me that she raised Rory almost entirely by herself at just the age of 16.  Lorelai is a super woman, a perfect balance of skills and an awesome mum.  She should by admired by all people, all over the world!
