One of Carrie's most loyal friends is Stanford Blatch, her gay galpal and confidante. Whenever Carrie needs some advice or a stand in for a cancelled date, Stanford is always there for her.
Stanford's luck with men is even worse than Carrie's, so he's uniquely qualified to understand her dating dilemmas. One of his former flames took the infamous "Single and Fabulous?" picture of Carrie. A turn on the internet (under the pseudonym of "Rick9Plus") wound up with Stanford standing in a bar, clad only in his underwear. Currently, Stanford is involved with Marcus (a man with abs good enough to grate cheese on), so maybe Stanford has finally found his man.
