Print Share Sex and the City is typically remembered for its racy content and fashion significance. But the show was never really about those things. So much so that we've compiled a list of everything Carrie said she was wondering about, in honor of SATC competing against Seinfeld in today's Sitcom Smackdown bracket. Maybe two models repelled; maybe models could only be attracted to ordinary humans.
But I couldn't help but wonder: What do they see in us? I wondered, In a city like New York, with its infinite possibilities, has monogamy become too much to expect? I couldn't help but wonder Ten years playing in New York. All ending in breakups. If I were a ballplayer, I'd be batting I couldn't help wondering if they were any higher Hell, we've even faked fur. Are we faking more than orgasms? When did being alone become the modern-day equivalent of being a leper?
One doesn't exist without the other. I wondered, Was Samantha right? Is cheating like the proverbial tree in the forest? That it doesn't exist if there's no one around to catch you? Had our class system been replaced by a caste system? And if so, can we date outside our caste? Was he able to stay sober? Am I really that good in bed? Can you be friends with an ex?

In today's youth-obsessed culture, are the women of my generation growing into mature responsible adults, or are we 34 going on 13? Does a string of bad dates really equal one good one? We've got a relationship without sex and sex without a relationship. Which had a better shot at survival? What comes first, the chicken or the sex? Are men just women with balls? As I looked around I wondered how many of them were mid-fight like myself.
I couldn't help but wonder: To be in a couple, do you have to put your single self on a shelf? How much does a father figure figure? Can you make a mistake and miss your fate? That carefree time when our schedules were as wide open as our hearts. The time before the baggage and breakups and babies began to weigh us all down. Does that sense of adventure still flicker inside of us? Or when it comes to being carefree single girls, have we missed the boat? Are we the new bachelors?
Why do we keep investing? Can you get to a future if your past is present? When will waiting for the one be done? Without sharing your worlds, can even the hottest relationship stop cold?
