The Lessons We Learned from Sex and the City

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.

Yes, I am fully aware that these characters don’t actually exist, but take it from me, their dating fiascoes do! He didn’t break up with me on a post-it like Burger did to Carrie. Instead he saved the post-it and wrote it on my bathroom mirror. I once had a guy’s dad tell me that my relationship with his son reminded him of Big and Carrie. First off, I couldn’t believe a guy in his 70’s watched Sex and the City. Second, I can guarantee with 100% certainty that I will not be taking his son back, not even if he flies to Paris to get me.

I think that’s why this show is so popular with women. It’s not about dating in New York City. These things can happen just as easily in small town Idaho. E Online came up with a great article about the 10 best lessons we learned from the show and they couldn’t be more right! My favorite has to be #2 or maybe #4…
