Carrie said it best: "They say nothing lasts forever; dreams change, trends come and go, but friendships never go out of style."
Our favorite female besties are a great example of what it means to be a true friend to your fellow woman—well, most of the time. (Remember when Miranda told Big that he and Carrie were crazy to get married, and then Carrie was stood up, Miranda eventually confessed, and they didn't talk for months? Yeah, that was pretty awful.)
Overall, though, these fashionably fierce women supported each other, practiced honesty, and were always just a phone call away. That said, they did fail quite often when it came to dating. Sure, their experiences are super relatable, but they're just as eff-ed up as the rest of us.
Here, we're reflecting back on the messed up dating and relationship advice SATC told us and calling them out on their bulls--t.
