Finding My PERFECT PERSON

if only...

if only…

Call it what you want – “SOULMATE”, “OTHER HALF”, “PERFECT PERSON” – we’re all looking, but we’re not all finding. Or — maybe we have found… WAIT! How do you know if the One is THE ONE? 

Like a certain Doctor who keeps messing with my mind…

Is he what I’m looking for? Am I that for him? Am I the yin to his yang? The vice to his versa? The Tiffany to his Pat?

(On another ER Break )
Conversing in the Cafeteria —

He gives me A LOOK after I taste his yummy muffin and spill a few crumbs —

ME
Messy really messes with you, huh?

DR. ADAM
It’s nice when the food stays on the plate.

ME
Yeah nice. Everyone thought Brad would’ve been “nicer” staying on Jen’s plate, but he would’ve missed out on the Angelina-plate.
I’ll always take passion over proper, even if it’s messy; give me Ryan Gosling in “Blue Valentine” anytime.

DR. ADAM
So you want a messy, Valentine-giving guy? That’s your idea of—

ME
What’s your idea? Someone “nice and safe” would be perfect?

DR. ADAM
I don’t want “perfect”

ME
Of course not, just perfectly good.

DR. ADAM
Plus a little bad isn’t too bad.

ME
Like Tim Riggins in “Friday Night Lights”, bad but so good.

DR. ADAM
No, not like anyone named Tim, thank you.

ME
But the right person—

DR. ADAM
But the right person—

ME
…makes your pulse race, like a car chase.

DR. ADAM
But feels like you’re coming home

ME
Hot, but protective, Dr. Doug Ross-style.

DR. ADAM
Smart, but not a know-it-all

ME
–with big dreams—

DR. ADAM
–with big appetites—

ME
And Steve Carell’s sense of humor—

DR. ADAM
–who can laugh at herself

ME|
An unlikely romantic lead—

DR. ADAM
Who really gets me—

ME
Like the Love-Actually-guy-with-the-sign, “To Me You Are Perfect”

DR. ADAM
Not just the idea of me.

How do you know when you’re excited about someone or the idea of that someone? I do think it’s about “getting” each other — yeah, that’s it: being “gotten”. And I kinda love what he said about “coming home” — don’t you? 

Man, I’m starving! Ahaha!
