After seeing how guys reacted to Carrie Bradshaw (opens in new tab)'s and Samantha Jones (opens in new tab)' best lines on Tinder, I wanted to find out how they'd react to another big, bad, bold personality from the SATC crew: everyone's favorite neurotic, monogamy-thirsty prude, Charlotte York.

Oh, it was the vagina journal comment that threw you off? Not the marriage one? Just wanna make sure we're on the same page here, okay.

2. This Guy Who Was Like, "No, Thank You"

For the record, ignoring is a soft pass. This is a hard pass.

3. This Realist

He sent that second message and I was already OMW to his place with five back issues of the Knot and fabric swatches.

4. This Disrespectful Mans

Come on, dude. That Christy Turlington softball wasn't even that weird.

5. This Curious Dude

Petition to make New Haven's new slogan, "New Haven, Connecticut: Unfortunately We're the Only One"

6. This Guy Who Just Didn't Understand My Love for Harry

He asked!

7. This Skeptic

Not unless you count this!

8. This Guy Who Just Wanted a Status Update

What stage am I in?

9. This Guy Who Hit Me Back With an Equally Fab Samantha Line

Where'd he pull that from?

10. And This Guy Who Was Already Over My Shit

Turns out, I'd already tried sending him nudes (opens in new tab) on Bumble! Gotta get that multi-platform engagement so I know it's real.

Texting as Charlotte was probably one of the most fun Tinder experiments I've done in a while (but Carrie is still my number one). Yeah, Samantha Jones (opens in new tab) and American Psycho (opens in new tab) quotes are interesting exercises in coolness and all, but TBH, Charlotte's earnest desperation felt like the ultimate experiment. She's so crazy and out there that her lines made me, a normally neurotic girl going 11/10 on any given thing, feel relatively chill and laid back. After all, you can't help but respect a woman trying to live her truth as aggressively as Charlotte.
