Mr Big fat lie …

Sex and the City movie Sex and the City finally debuted in Australia today. Now, don’t get me wrong. I love Sex and the City as much as the next woman. However, it’s just a movie and not a reflection of real life. I’m not giving anything away that Carrie is dating Mr Big in the movie. That’s when the Sex and the City movie lost a little allure for me. It sends out the wrong message to women who allow men to treat them badly, that one day if they are patient enough, they will turn around and realise that you were the one. In reality, it’s highly unlikely that you will end up in the top ten.

I always say that for every man who is a bastard, there are ten women willing to put up with that behaviour. Carrie was the poster child for doormats all over the world. She stayed friends with Mr Big even though he decided to move away to Nappa, California, he married someone else and without conscience, tried to break up her relationship with Aiden and yet she still stayed friends with him and gave him advice on his girlfriends. I would have changed my number years ago. Hmmm … perhaps that’s why I’m still single. Seriously though, no one should be that understanding.

This is the thing that most women don’t seem to get. A man doesn’t have to beat you or verbally abuse you to be a bastard. He can be perfectly charming and still manage to rip your heart apart and turn your world upside down. Most players are likeable people. That’s what attracted you to them in the first place.

For the most part, the only reason a man like that will marry you is because he has decided to settle. Like Miranda said, men are like cabs and if their light is on, they will marry the next woman they pick up. For a lot of men, it’s all about being in the right place at the right time. But do you really want to be part of a man’s five year plan? Don’t answer that.

You get the odd exception but for the most part, a man who is a bastard to a woman, is not going to wake up and realise that she was right for him all along even if he has had potentially life changing, bypass surgery.

    Totally agree. Now there are rumours that Mr Big cheated on Carrie in the sequel. That seems more true to form.
