Valentine’s Lessons From Carrie Bradshaw

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Miami (OH) chapter.



If you’ve seen Sex and the City, you know Carrie Bradshaw is a hopeless romantic and she is not afraid to write about it. She loves the idea of being in love, but she also recognizes the hard truth that it’s not all that it lives up to be. In honor of Valentine’s Day, here are some of her greatest quotes about love that we all need to be reminded of!


“I am someone who is looking for real love. Ridiculous. Inconvenient. Consuming. Can’t live without each other type of love.”


Oh, Carrie! Aren’t we all? 


“Maybe our girlfriends are our soulmates and guys are just people to have fun with.”


Talk about Galentine’s Day vibes! Send some extra love to your girl squad this year. 


“The odds of bumping into the one who broke your heart are incredibly high. The odds of bumping into him when you look like shit are much higher.” 


So true! But honestly, does SJP ever look bad? 


“Women come to New York for the two L’s. Labels and love.”


I think all the fashionistas, whether in NY or not, can appreciate this one. 


“The most exciting, challenging relationship of all is the one you have with yourself. And if you find someone to love you the way that you love you, well that’s fabulous.”


2020 is all about self-care first ladies. Lizzo says it best. Remember, in order to be loved, you have to love yourself first!


Have a great Valentine’s Day, Galentine’s Day, or just another day!
