Sex in the City has eaten my brain.

I'd forgotten how often we saw Magritte

I think it was Sex and the City, anyways. I look at a friend's problems in relationships and dating, contemplate my own contributions to them, and find myself going 'Aw, shit. I'm that guy.'
I don't exactly recall context for who or what that guy is, though. But I think it was in Sex and the City. Maybe I'm wrong. But I am pretty sure, regardless, I am that guy.

UPDATE: this post isn't about you. It's about me. Me Me me me me.
  • Tease!

    All tempt and no carrot?! /What/ guy is /that/ guy?!
  • What's that guy like, anyways? I'm baffled :)
  • What scanner said!!! Carrot! Carrot! Carrot!
  • The traditional "that guy" is the often gay or emasculated or at least off the market secondary character who provides a sympathetic ear and a "guy's view" to Our Heroine and her girls' dating woes, while never getting any himself (at least that anyone ever gets to hear about). Alternatively, "that guy" may be just terribly wussy and secretly lusting after one of them or all of them, but never gets anywhere -- you know, the "nice guy".
  • Don't be THAT guy
  • see, i talk about how i don't want to be that asshole. this first came up in conversation w/ mr. metropolis (who is alive, by the way; got some communication last week): he talked about the sorts of emails he would get in response to his site, and mentioned the asshole who would only point out errors. "oh!" i said, worried, when i realized what my last message to him had been. "i'm that asshole." he laughed, because he had forgotten this.

    also, use of that guy is notable in conversations between sars and regina on tomato nation.
