We all know who he is. He’s apparently one of the contributing factors of the baby boom circa 2012. If you don’t know who Christian Grey is, good for you… if you don’t, let me offer a brief introduction. Mr. Grey is a handsome young millionaire who’s discretely into BDSM and obviously fictional. The last description should be the only reason to convince you why he isn’t “the one” but since I stated three—I’ll list them down for you.
1) Baggage – We all have them. Mommy issues, daddy issues, etc. But the main baggage any sane woman should be heavily alarmed at is his exes. Okay, they may not have been romantic relationships but his previous “submissive” partners not only creepily resemble one another but they’ve also banded together and might possibly plan to kill you in the future.
2) Control – The BDSM practices in the bedroom isn’t an issue. The problem is his controlling nature. His obsession to check your emails and to know exactly where you are, who you’re with and what you’re doing may seem slightly sweet to you now but months down the road, the lack of trust will deplete your energy. Besides, do you really want to be with a guy who buys a company just because you work there?
3) He’s like MC Hammer – You can’t touch him—yet he expects you to sign a non-disclosure contract so he can safely get freaky with you.
A guy like Christian Grey is more than 50 shades damaged. Don’t fool yourself into thinking you’re the special snowflake that will save him. If you ever meet someone in real life that reminds you of him, cop on and run as far away as you can.
