7 Meredith & Alex Moments From 'Grey's Anatomy' That Make Us Have Hope In True Love

We were all completely devastated when McDreamy passed away in Grey's Anatomy. Meredith Grey and Derek Shepherd were the perfect couple who made us believe in true love, but maybe that wasn't the only true love for Mer. What if she's also meant to be with her best friend, Alex Karev? It seems as though a lot of fans have been shipping it for quite some time, and we're here for it. I mean, who has never failed to be there for our Meredith throughout the course of the series? He has always been a true constant in her life, and let's face it, we see the love brewing there in the best Meredith and Alex moments from Grey's Anatomy.

We all want our partner in life to be our best friend anyway, so it just makes perfect sense that these two are soulmates. Sure, they both have had separate great loves and loss that would make us hesitant in shipping them at first. However, over the course of the series, Alex and Meredith have always been there for each and continue to be there, even after everyone else leaves. That, my friends, is true love. Stop toying with our hearts, Shonda Rhimes, and just give our "dark and twisty" girl a forever kind of a love that will never, ever leave.

When Cristina left Meredith, there was a gaping hole in her heart. "Her person" was no longer with her on the regular, and we all cried into our pillows at night.

I mean, he was basically doing the job already and killing it.

There must be some unwritten rule that Meredith's need for Alex comes before anyone else's. Jo basically gave up fighting Meredith when she needed to get in the bed to talk to Alex.

Nothing will stop Meredith from talking to her BFF, even if Jo was pretty pissed about it.

Alex comforted Meredith after a bad surgery. He let her know that if she was really mad and wanted to hit and scream, she could take it all out on him. You need that in a partner — someone who will let you freely vent your feelings, and be a support system when you're having the worst day ever.
