A Big Screw You to the Chuck Basses and Mr. Bigs of the World

Like many girls, I grew up rooting for Carrie Bradshaw and Mr. Big to end up together. Every time he turned her down, every time he fell for someone else I felt sad. And then here comes young Chuck. Doing whatever feels right for him. Stomping on Blair’s feelings. And again here comes little me hoping for what I thought was a happy ending. And I got it. They ended up together. But my definition of a happy ending has changed. Two strong, independent women being thrown around by guys afraid of commitment? Don’t get me wrong no one is perfect. Carrie and Blair made a fair share of mistakes. But they stood by their men. And for what? To keep them behind? Is that what we are teaching young women and men? To stick around a person that doesn’t respect them? That doesn’t consider them equals? That a romantic relationship is worth more than your sanity? It doesn’t feel right.

This my personal take on two really famous couples. Sorry for the rant…
