Sex and the City comes out this weekend and women all over the nation are running to the theatre to see the movie that made the weekly  meeting of girlfriends at a restaurant to have cocktails, discuss work, love and life the professional woman’s norm. The conversation is usually the same no matter where or who is meeting – why can’t we seem to find love?

Well, one woman sought the advice of HelloBeautiful’s Gay Best Friend.

Dear Gay Best Friend,

So, I’m having trouble finding the man of my dreams, as one would say. I’m not searching too hard, but at the moment I’m actually working on me. I’m in the middle of studying for my certification as a medical assistant, and I’m also in school for Healthcare Administration. All of this and I’m only 21. I’m still living with my mother until school is completed and to some that’s not too attractive, but at the same time everyone has their moment when they realize it’s time to go. And, I’m definitely ready to go. I just can’t seem to find the right time to leave.

But, anyway, for some reason I actually suck when it comes to picking the right man.

To make a long story short, every guy I actually start talking to is either somebody elses man or full of it in the first place. And when I do actually find someone I want to be with I run away from the relationship because I don’t know how to start my life with someone because I’ve learned to be so independent since my mom’s a single mother. And that doesn’t really settle with them.

Another thing that I dread is that I LOVE kids and I want one of my own, but of course I don’t want to be another stereotype with the “baby daddy drama” and all that jazz. There’s nothing wrong with it, but I don’t want my child resenting their father like I do mine. What I’m trying to say is that I need some kind of advice on how to start my life with a significant other and how to find the right significant other. – Independent and Confused!
