BiographyEdit

Stanford Blatch is Carrie Bradshaw's best friend outside of the 3 women.

PersonalityEdit

Stanford Blatch is a classy gay man, not by stature, as he is physically rather measly, a major dating disadvantage, but definitely in terms of good taste. Stanford is professionally a success and greatly enjoys working with attractive young men, occasionally the same targets as the girls, but has a better instinct to tell which share his preference. He is very social, and gets along well with the quartet, especially Carrie, even mutually sharing confidences and asking advice neither would be at ease with among their own genders, as he often understands women better than they can themselves. Stanford's wit, wisdom and wealth win him more than once an amazingly attractive date, such as underwear model the Bone, a stunning stud who picks him out in an underwear bar because of his Parisian briefs and last but not least Marcus, a magnificent Broadway dancer.

In SATC 2 he marries Anthony Maratino, his former nemesis.

RelationshipsEdit

Carrie BradshawEdit

Carrie and Stanford have a long-standing relationship built within their younger, wilder days in the New York Cityclub and bar scene in the 1980s. He had said that they have been friends since Carrie was riding the subways and wearing Candie's. Carrie sometimes calls him "Stanny"

MarcusEdit

Marcus and Stanford start dating in Season 5.

Anthony MarantinoEdit

Charlotte tries to set up Anthony and Stanford. Anthony snubs Stanford, which results in resentment and competition ensues for the entire show run. However, in the first film, the two are seen kissing at a New Year's Eve party, and then get married in the sequel.
