The final episode of Sex and the City aired 10 years ago this past weekend. It seems just like last Sunday that I would anxiously await the week's episode. The good news is, the lessons I learned still stand true to this day.

As a single woman in her 30's, there is something very comforting about any episode of Sex and the City. It feels like every heart break I have experienced, either Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte or Miranda went through that same situation. I was never alone. And thanks to HBOGo, I am still never alone. When it feels like the dating scene is just beating me down, I just have to turn on an episode and 30 minutes later I am feeling better.
