What Sex and the City Can Teach Us About Female Friendships

You can’t deny the popularity of television show Sex and the City. Somewhat of a cultural phenomenon in the late ‘90s/early 00s, the success of the show left some critics baffled at its popularity.

The truth is, the show was popular because most modern women were able to relate to some of the situations the female characters found themselves in. 

Sure, the fabulous apartments, expensive shoe collection and cheap laughs and innuendo-filled gags did (at times) take away from the realism of the show but generally, a lot of single career women could relate to the relationship woes featured in the show.

The lasting effect of the series is that now, a lot of females aspire to the "Sex and the City lifestyle" – the great jobs, the great apartments, the glam wardrobe, going out for cocktails etc.

But it seems a lot of women are forgetting to aspire to one key component of the show: the strong female friendships.

How To Talk To Women

It REALLY p*sses me off when guys don’t know how to talk to girls properly, or talk down to them in a lame attempt at flirting.

I know I’m not the only one to experience this, and my friend recently told me about an occasion where she and her friend were approached by two guys. They got into a seemingly pleasant conversation and when it ended, the guys asked for their number. They politely declined, causing the guys to verbally abuse them both.


I’m not talking about shy or introverted guys by the way, because I can sympathise with those types, and once they open up you realise they make wonderful conversationalists.
