Sam is bluntly picked up at a bar by Wall Street hedge-man Jeff Fenton, but gets doubts when she sees how short he is. At a Kelley fund-raiser, continuing to look for a potential husband, Charlotte learns a lovely couple met at a party where each girl brought an ex she doesn't dig any more; Stanford asks Carrie to introduce him to Bill's hot young campaign manager Mark, but he's only into other hunks.

Carrie And Bill - A Boring Relationship
4 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Carrie eventually consummates her relationship with Bill Kelley, but is put out when he reveals a fantasy of his.Miranda doesn't know how to respond when Steve asks her to "go steady". Charlotte throws a "used date" party to find a new man. Samantha dates a short man who shops at the Boy's Department in Bloomingdale's.

Finally,Carrie sees something wrong with Bill.Funny how Samantha dates a short guy a.k.a Smurf.I think that made up for the not-so-interesting Bill/Carrie relationship.Also,we get to see Steve try to re-ignite his love towards Miranda and asks her to give their relationship another try.Also,it is interesting how we see Charlotte find Mr.Right in the not- so traditional way.At least,they all made up for Carrie's boring relationship with Bill.
