Patrick Loves A Strong Woman

We just can't get enough of Patrick Dempsey, especially after Grey's this week. While his character Derek seems kind of undecided on what he wants in a relationship at times, Patrick knows exactly what kind of woman he wants - a strong one. He doesn't have to look far though, considering he's already married to one. But Patrick says his wife Jill stops short of being bossy. Details reports:

“She doesn’t boss me around. But she certainly is strong enough to let me know where she stands. I want a strong woman. Otherwise I wouldn’t be married to her.”

“Jill’s good for him,” says Ellen Pompeo, his Grey’s flame. “I think maybe Patrick needs discipline. I don’t want to make it sound like Jill’s a dominatrix, but structure is something he craves. To me, what stands out about him the most is his sense of duty to his family. Jill’s a really lucky girl that way. Women throw themselves at him. I’ve never seen him flirt, you know, in a serious way. He’s always looking at his watch or phone—‘Gotta get home to the girls.’”

So sweet! We don't doubt that he has women following him around all the time. Luckily with guys like Patrick around, being a family man is still a possibility in Hollywood. I also love that he looks like he is in the pages of Details while filling his car with gas. Love his style! All class.
