A good friend is hard to find

Oh, how I long for the friendship these girls have. Maybe it doesn't exist in real life. Not sure. This girl was cable deprived for years, and even now HBO isn't in the budget. However I have been watching Sex in the City reruns, lately. These women are forever loyal to each other, nothing stands between them, not men, kids,disagreements, nothing. They are intelligent independent women, that I am so envious of. Last night I was watching what I think was the final episodes. Big went to the girls in attempt to get Carrie back. He told them "she is in love with you girls", I got teary eyed. In my experience men here aren't really fond of strong independent women. They especially don't want you to be their girlfriend/wife's best friend. I truly believe this is what deteriorated a couple of my past friendships, ones I thought would last forever. My heart still breaks for some of these situations. I still believe, the strong, straight forward, witty woman is not shamed to death on the east coast. Like it is here.
But if the while I think on thee, dear friend,
All losses are restored and sorrows end.
~William Shakespeare
