Sometimes relationships and dating are overrated,and there's no bigger example of that then the less-than-stellar guys fromSex and the City.Considering the series' bread-and-butter was dating and relationship snafus,we could have written a lengthy dissertation advocating for singlehood withSATCmaterial—but instead,we've needled out the worst offenders and put them on blast below.Here are 21 times that Carrie's,Samantha's,Charlotte's,and Miranda's guys made us think it's better to just be single.
1.When Jon comments on Samantha's (nonexistent) neck wrinkles.
Sure,"twentysomethings" have their benefits—for Samantha,it was Jon's stamina in the bedroom—but nobody needsanyonepointing out fine lines (or any flaw for that matter),especially a date.
2.When Kevin's anger management drugs prevented sexy time with Charlotte.
What do you do when your partner can no longer have sex due to Prozac and desperately needs said Prozac to control his or her temper?That's a dilemma we'd rather avoid entirely.
3.When Gilles leaves Carrie money after a one-night stand.
We're not ones to turn our noses up at athousanddollars.(Or a hot French date,for that matter.) But we certainly don't want to feel slut-shamed by anyone,no matter the cash or the hotness involved.
4.When Alexander calls Charlotte a "b*tch" and "whore" in bed.
See above re: slut-shaming (even accidental slut-shaming).
5.When Kevin is a straight-up asshole to Miranda.
What is it with guys named Kevin on this show?This one was so unpleasant to be around.Miranda thought his mood would improve once he was named partner at his law firm—but nope,he proved himself,once again,to just be a jerk.And we'd rather be alone than have to hang out—romantically,no less—with a jerk.
6.When Dominic ditches Samantha for a model—and then screws her overagain.
Another class-A d-bag!And another shining example of a person not worth our precious time—not even to try and get revenge on.
7.When Brad licks Charlotte's face.
Charlotte had to kiss plenty of frogs before she found Harry,and Brad was by far the worst.His kissing abilities were severely lacking,and he was under the wrong impression that "making out" meant "licking the other person's face like a puppy dog." Yuck.We'll take no kissing over face-licking any day.
8.When Greg gives Charlotte crabs.
One upside of taking yourself off the market?Not having to worry about getting crabs—or any other STD—from anyone.
9.When Bram falls asleep while having sex with Charlotte.
Poor Charlotte.She meets one dud after another.And while,yes,Bram was a doctor and had just finished a long day of surgery,it's still a major ego blow to have a person fall asleep on youliterally.
10.When Jack wants to get "caught in the act" with Miranda—by his parents.
Sure,exhibitionism has its thrills—but when mom and dad get involved,things get weird.And we much prefer a weirdo-free love life.
11.When Ethan has to watch pornevery single timebefore having sex with Miranda.
There's watching porn,and then there's Ethan's straight-up porn addiction.No thank you.
12.When Bill wants to pee on Carrie but then breaks up with her because she's a sex columnist.
Hey,golden showers may be your thing.To each their own fetish!But don't ask for that andthensay it's bad for your career to date somebody who writes about sex.
13.When Marathon Man wants to do anilingus with Mirandaafter running.
