Just for fun: Who is the best Sex and the City Boyfriend?

sex and the city banner

Let’s settle this once and for all. Who is the best SATC boyfriend of all time? The sweet Steve? The suave Big? The impossibly hot Smith Jerrod?

Obviously, given the impressive track record of our girls, it is not plausible to include every man (or girl) in the show on this list. Therefore we’ve truncated this list to people we believe could reasonably be on the list. So that’s going to leave out the Ted’s and Ned’s of the SATC world. If you want to convince us otherwise or that we’re missing someone, let us know in the debate below.

In case you do not remember the character, we’ve included the episode in which the character first appeared next to their name. After you submit your vote, head below to the comments and give your justification for why you chose the man you did.

Also note, you will be able to vote once per every 24-hour period.
