When even her friends are sick and tired of Carrie's raving after the break-up with Mr.Big, she takes Stanford's advice to go in therapy, as everybody does in Manhattan, and gets a surprise bonus: in the waiting room she meets Seth, who proves a substitutive therapy in the flesh. Samantha picks up a man in a sports bar, but will even she ever get his full and undivided attention for nonathletic practice? Miranda finally feels really flattered when a gorgeous man in the adjacent building goes from flirting to stripping at the window, but when she meets him learns his eye is on a male tenant one floor below hers.

Men Who Treat Women As Objects
3 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Carrie starts going to therapy after obsessing about Big for too long. Offended by the diagnosis of dating men who are wrong for her, she dates cute fellow-patient Seth,who happens to be a guy who loses interest in women after sleeping with them. Miranda plays "peek-a-boo" her cute across-the-air shaft neighbor. Samantha dates a sports fanatic whose mood depends on who won the game that night.

In Games People Play,Carrie,Miranda and Samantha meet men who are awkward.Unfortunately,there is no issue involved in it except that we see men who treat women as objects and nothing more.It is just too bad that they get upset about it.
