Grey's Anatomy has a bit of an odd relationship to the concept of "one true love" or "soulmates."

On one hand, many of the characters have had multiple significant relationships over the course of the seasons — this is definitely not the kind of show where characters can only "really" love one person.

On the other hand, most of the characters do end up having that one romantic partner who is even more special to them than anyone else. Obviously Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) and Derek (Patrick Dempsey) have each other. Callie (Sara Ramirez) and Arizona (Jessica Capshaw) have each other. Mark (Eric Dane) had Lexie (Chyler Leigh). Despite their struggles, it even looks like Owen (Kevin McKidd) and Cristina (Sandra Oh) might be meant to be.

But what about Alex (Justin Chambers)? Shonda Rhimes has hinted that he hasn't found that one special girl yet, saying that she's "looking for Alex to find his person" in Season 9. And in case you think she means his BFF (like Mer and Cristina), she doesn't: "This is the season I want to see Alex find true love — his person to land with," she says.

Of course, this has led some fans to say, "Um, what about Izzie (Katherine Heigl)?" While their relationship ended on far from a good note, many fans think their journey isn't done, and consider Izzie Alex's true love.
