Oh Mr. Big, and Carrie, and the rest of the gals—brought back into our lives by the Sex and the City movie. Though women seem to make up the majority of the film's audience, a few men have ventured out to take in the wonder that is a tale of four aging ladies living life in the big city. Romance, of course, ensues:
1) Chelsea: "Sex and the City - 5:15pm at Chelsea Clearview - m4m. Hi. You were sitting in front of me and I accidentally kept hitting your seat. I wanted to apologize when the movie ended, but you raced out of the theater as soon as the movie ended. You were in a grey tanktop and wearing glasses and I thought you were cute. If you happen to see this post, drop me a line so I can buy you a drink to make up for hitting your seat throughout the movie." [Listing]
2) Flatiron: "You rolled me two outside Loews 19th - w4m. You were on the phone when I walked up... dropped everything you were doing... I was hanging out with an old friend, you walked off... I couldn't think of how to stop you. I think you maybe the sweetest man I've ever met (my friend even commented on that)." [Listing]
3) UWS: "Commmenting Pre and During the Movie - m4m. Sat next to each other at a showing of SATC and everyone was trying to grab the seats in our row while your friend was out getting snacks. Had some good back and forth pre and during the movie and I believe you own me $10 if not $20 for some plot development predictions as well as for my suggeted title for the sequel. If you see this hit me up and let's continue our conversation. ps Hope you managed to stay cool today and not attempt to hang out in the park!" [Listing]
