The best thing about “Sex and the City” for the average single gal is knowing we’ll still be having fun into our 40s — cheers to that!

In honor of the “Sex and the City 2” movie releasing this weekend, here are my picks for the three best quotes from the show on being single (cue the Cosmos!):

  • “Being single used to mean that nobody wanted you. Now it means you’re pretty sexy and you’re taking your time deciding how you want your life to be and who you want to spend it with.”
  • MIRANDA: “We were the only single people in there.”
  • CARRIE: “Miranda, we’re the only single people anywhere.”
  • “If you are single, after graduation, there isn’t one occasion where people celebrate you…Hallmark doesn’t make a “congratulations you didn’t marry the wrong guy” card. And where’s the flatware for going on vacation alone?…I’m thrilled to give you gifts to celebrate your life. I just think it stinks that single people are left out of it.”
