Do we need drama to make a relationship work?
“When things come too easy, we’re suspect. Do they have to get complicated before we believe they’re for real? We’re raised to believe that course of true love never runs smoothly. There always have to be obstacles in Act Two before you can live happily ever after in Act Three. But what happens when the obstacles aren’t there? Does that mean there’s something missing?”
- Carrie Bradshaw [Sex & the City - Season 3 Episode 7 - Drama Queens]
Bachelor friends of married men are the city’s greatest untapped resource.

Maybe modern women need a cheat-sheet to remind us romance isn’t dead.
— Carrie Bradshaw [Sex & the City - Season 3 Episode 6 - Are We Sluts?]
Don’t people date anymore?
“I do wanna sleep with you. I do. Look at you. But I’ve been down that road before. I’ve slept with women quickly and I’m still single. So my new thing is, I just want to try and sleep with somebody I care about. I really think that I can care about you. & It’s only been a week and a half. Don’t people date anymore?”
- Aiden Shaw [Sex & the City - Season 3 Episode 6 - Are We Sluts?]
You’d better be careful. You wait too long to sleep with someone. You miss the window and become just friends.

In relationships, what are the “deal breakers”?
“Later that night, I couldn’t help but wonder, when the hell did dating become so dump-friendly? What happened to the time when a bad kiss or a cigarette or even a ridiculous dream was part of a person’s portfolio?
In today’s volatile dating market, is it wise to liquidate certain stocks, the first sign they might not perform as well as expected? Or are there certain things one should try and negotiate?”
- Carrie Bradshaw [Sex & the City - Season 3 Episode 5 - No ifs, ands or Butts]
One of the reasons some people still risk the possible horror of a first date, is the possible magic of the good-night kiss at the front door.

carrie on dating younger guys.
“I realized they could do whatever they wanted, but deep down I was too old to play this game. So I took my hot, old fart-ass home. That’s just me.”
[Sex & the City - Season 3 Episode 4 - Boy, Girl, Boy, Girl]
older guys are gross.
“Why do I need to go out with these ugly, rich old men, when I can go out with gorgeous, rich young guys?”
