In contrast, Skipper is terribly smitten with Miranda from the start, even going so far as to break up with a girl in mid-intercourse after Miranda calls, as he believes it means that "the woman he loves most" wants to be with him. I would rather dream of a future where I made big, glossy mistakes in designer clothes with rich douche in a limo than one in which I had a normal, stable life with a guy who wouldn't turn many heads and yeah, had a weird relationship with his mother, but treated me well and made me laugh. Although she occasionally engages in an on-again, off-again sexual relationship with Skipper, she never truly wishes to be with him. In contrast, Skipper is terribly smitten with Miranda from the start, even going so far as to break up with a girl in mid-intercourse when Miranda calls, as he believes it means that "the woman he loves most" wants to be with him. It will all start to make sense soon. By standards, Carrie is the equivalent of an overly edited Instagram. We learn that she is still employing Magda and that Steve's mother Mary is living in a nursing home, as she now suffers from advancing Alzheimer's. Despite Miranda and Robert's sparks of chemistry, Miranda cannot control her longing for her current on-again, off-again boyfriend, Steve Brady. Almost a lonely year passes by before Miranda confesses it on Valentine's Day to Carrie about her wrongdoing. Perhaps no famous foursome has lent itself to this game more perfectly — for 20 years and counting, no less — than the ladies of Sex and the City. Carrie is frequently celebrated for her bold fashion choices, and I would be the first to support her prowess in this regard. Miranda tells Steve she is pregnant and will take on full responsibility, including raising the child and providing all the related finances, but Steve can "visit" whenever he wants. While each of the show's four central women had their admirable aspects, they each also had flaws you definitely didn't want to be associated with — but none had as undesirable a reputation as Miranda Cynthia Nixon. In the early seasons she is portrayed as distrustful and resentful of men, but this image softens over the years, particularly after she becomes pregnant by her on-again, off-again boyfriend, Steve Brady, whom she eventually marries. She only tells people what they want to hear. After a shared laugh one night over Miranda having a milk moustache, the two have sex in a moment of newfound passion, but midway through Miranda tells Steve to hurry up because she has to get up early, which upsets him.
