I don't want to be Carrie Bradshaw anymore.

I previously posted about how I felt like myself and many other female bloggers were all kind of wanna-be Carrie Bradshaws, you can read about it here. But I've recently decided that I don't want to be like Carrie at all! I'm much more of a Charlotte and I like it.

First, of all Charlotte basically has my dream job. She manages a super posh art gallery in New York (or she did at one point). That would be so incredibly amazing and is really similar to what I would actually like to do with my career.

But second of all I feel like I'm a lot like Charlotte in the love department. It was actually my sister that pointed this out to me. She said, "Hayley I think you are like Charlotte. You think that after everything failed with your Trey that you were going to be single forever but don't worry you're going to find your Harry."

I love my sister and she is so right. That is exactly my life and how I am. Much like Charlotte I like to have a plan and currently I don't have a life plan as far as relationship stuff goes because my romantic relationships with men are non-existent.

My ex, who was my version of Trey, seemingly perfect but really a horrible match, has left me in a dating rut where I feel like I won't find anyone that will go beyond his good qualities and eliminate his bad.

In the end Harry was not at all what Charlotte was looking for or expected but he turned out to be absolutely perfect for her. I think if I stop looking and worrying about it a great guy will find me. Hopefully :)

One more reason I'd rather be Charlotte. Carrie's sense of style is sometimes MAJORLY off but Charlotte is always dressed impeccably. That is all.


  1. Hahah! I love Sex and the City! I think I have a little bit of all the girls in me! Great metaphor!! There is so much going on with your life right now- focus on work and friends and your family and I bet you will be pleasantly surprised!!
    Have a great day!!
