It’s hard to believe but Sex and The City premiered 15 years ago. It burst onto our screens, a complete breath of fresh air, towering in its heels over all its competitors. Finally we had a show that women could champion, where we called the shots and then drank them.
Six seasons and 94 episodes later it ended, and I remember shedding a tear as I bid farewell to Carrie et al. I felt like I’d lost my buddies. (I know, I know, there were 2 movies, but the less said about those the better, eh?)
Do you remember playing the game, ‘Which SATC character are you?’ And everyone hoping that they wouldn’t be Charlotte?
How about those fabulous outfits that Carrie never could have afforded on her writer’s salary in a million years?
And all the amazing quotes that Samantha dryly delivered? I should have listened when she stated, “Don’t play hard to get, with a man who’s hard to get.” Instead I got burnt.
Sex and The City showed us every dating mistake you could ever make with every type of man. And so, with that in mind, I thought I’d celebrate its birthday, by giving you 12 MUST READ dating rules that SATC bequeathed us.
If you can think of any others, let me know!
