Samantha Jones may have been the most foul-mouthed, man-eating, outrageous member of the awesome Sex and the City ladies, but when she wasn’t giving X-rated tips or getting into trouble, she actually gave us some pretty sound advice when it comes to men…

02

…but if you do find a good guy, don’t expect it to be plain sailing! Long relationships take work (SO true)

08
