The Catch

I bought this sex and the city book last month and I had fun going over the pages. Aside from the fearless “punch lines” I get to see Samantha, Carrie, Miranda and Charlotte in their fashionable clothes…shoes…bags…hair style…and the “girly stuff”.

I’ve always been a big fan of this tv series. I fell in love with the characters, the story and best of all the lessons it tries to impart about relationships.

I can relate to almost all of the episodes. Whenever I watch it I sometimes feel like Charlotte who always believes in “happily ever after”. There are times wherein I can relate to Carrie who always expects things to be bigger than mr. big. I’d like to say that there’s a part of me who’s like Miranda, who always pretends to be stronger than she is…and I really wish I can be just like Samantha who can be this extraordinary girl who loves herself more than anybody else.

Well anyway… guess what? I’m writing because I suddenly feel like Carrie who had so many questions about relationships…I and some friends of mine had been talking about “the catch” the other day and I remembered sex and the city’s main character Carrie and one of her quotes…and it got me thinking…” when did it stop being fun and start being scary?”

We’ve been debating on this topic over and over…My male friend said, ” it won’t start being scary as long as you’re both mature enough”…I and my other friend had something else in mind…” it starts getting scary when you know that you don’t have any safety nets that will catch you during your bad fall.” I guess doing things together is the main ingredient of a successful relationship. Doing things together makes the relationship work…Trying to be strong for the weaker person makes the relationship in a better position to withstand all other “bad falls”…Knowing that somebody’s there to “catch” you is enough to feel secured in a relationship. The “i got your back and you got mine” thing would mean ” happily ever after” to me…Well basically I believe when your partner forgets about the “safety net” and tries to let go, that’s just the point wherein it stops being fun and starts being scary”.

Oh well…it’s just one of those hot summer days… :-p
