We cannot deny the evidence: Carrie Bradshaw, of more or less stable boyfriends, in Sex & The City, he had: Mr. Big, Aidan, Berger, Aleksandr Petrovsky … But the rest of the time, and for six seasons, ours was engaged, in addition to shopping and drinking Cosmopolitan, to seek love, together with his three adventure / misfortune companions Miranda, Charlotte and Samantha. Years of casual encounters, first dates, scorching disappointments, romantic moments or, more often, improbable and embarrassing boyfriends, continuous inspiration for his column on New York Star. For the joy and amusement of the public all over the world, female and non-female, who for years has cheered for the four girls, decreeing the success of one of the most loved TV series ever (here the most beautiful episodes in our opinion) .

And with all this wealth of knowledge on single life and first dates, albeit limited to the small and the big screen (Parker is happily married to Matthew Broderick since 1997), who, if not Sarah Jessica Parker, could think of a reality show dedicated to singles? Is called Swipe Swap the new program produced by ITV America which involves two singles who exchange, literally, their lives, and therefore their home, family and friends, hoping that in a completely new context they will have more luck and will be able to find love.
