on the season premiere of Grey's Anatomy, Dr. Bailey said something so profound that i had to write something about it. she broke up with her super hot boyfriend because he was too perfect. i mean look at him, he is kind of fine and stuff. but in actuality he is not perfect at all, but she is so "busy with the tape and the glue" holding herself together that she can't deal with someone who is not in the same state. she even went so far as to say that if he was as tattered as she was that it would make things easier for their relationship to work. after seeing that scene, i had an epiphany about women in bad relationships. we are damaged and only feel comfortable with other damaged people, thus leading to more horrible relationships. if something seems to good or if someone treats you too well, damaged folks start looking for the shoe to drop; anticipating some betrayal of trust. its a sad tale, but all too often true. in my mind, Shonda Rhimes and her team had solved one of the biggest relationship issue plaguing the dating scene today. but of course it is just a TV show and people don't take hollyweird too seriously, so the comment was disregarded as just some dramatic diatribe by a fictional character. i think if the line had been followed with this, more people would have paid attention.
