In Season 7, Lorelai starts dating Christopher as an adult and fairly quickly they marry, initially souring the relationship between Luke and Lorelai, especially after Lorelai tells Luke that she slept with Christopher shortly after walking away from Luke after he refused her ultimatum.
In the scene, Luke drives to Lorelai's house, his truck full of supplies for their elopement, and tells her he is ready, before she tells him what happened.
He stays to comfort her, including a hug and thoughtful commentary (and Lorelai at one point inadvertently admits that he's good-looking to which he's very intrigued to hear more about).
During a wait, Luke ends up speaking with Lorelai's mother Emily who asks if the two were on a date or are a couple.
This small-town feeling that he cherishes directly correlates to his failed relationship with Rachel.
Luke attended Stars Hollow High School where he lettered in Track (hurdles), a successful team that went to the State Finals more than once, and won twice.

This discovery also results in Luke's arrest for beating up "the other man's" car.
The possibility of a Luke and Lorelai romance is hinted at early on.
At Rory's 16th birthday party Luke thoughtfully brings a bag of ice, just when Lorelai is about to leave the party to get some, and Emily comments that the "ice-man" was checking Lorelai out to which she blushes and denies it.
This culminates in Lorelai giving Luke an ultimatum – marry her now or it's over.
