Carrie And Mr. Big's First Official Date
2 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Carrie has a photo session for a bus side poster to promote her weekly column. She has her first official date with Mr. Big and worries that she has ruined the relationship before it has started by sleeping with him so early on. She researches people who have relationships in secret. Miranda discovers her boyfriend's fetish. When Mr. Big doesn't show up to see the maiden voyage of her promotional poster on the side of a bus, Carrie suspects she is only his secret lover, and confronts him.

Not everyone we meet in our lives is someone we want to introduce to our friends, let alone if we're having sex with them. Some people will perhaps embarrass us in front of our friends, so we prefer to keep them a secret. The part of this episode, that's about this 'secret sex' is very believable and well written, climaxing in Carrie confronting Mr. Big about her feeling like a possible 'secret sex'-partner.This is definitely one of the best episodes of the first season especially with development of Carrie and Mr.Big's relationship.
