Sex and the City

What are the rules to breaking up? Is 'faking it' better than being alone? Are there certain things in a relationship one should never say? Is cheating like the proverbial tree in the forest--it doesn't exist if nobody catches you?

In Season 2 of HBO's sexy, smash-hit comedy series, Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker) begins dating again in the wake of her break-up with Mr. Big while her friends Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda continue to provide fodder for her column.
