Should Carrie Bradshaw Be With Mr. Big vs. Aidan Shaw on Sex and the City

Buzz Battle, Sex and the City 2 Edition: Big vs. Aidan

For this edition of Buzz Battle, the fight over who Carrie Bradshaw belongs with isn't a heated debate between editors; it's among BuzzSugar readers. The results on this definitive Aidan vs. Big poll are split at almost exactly 50/50, and the division is clear in the comments. Check out the arguments for Mr. Big and those in favor of Aidan for Carrie's love in Sex and the City 2 and beyond!

  • User Khameel: "I love Aidan! Some people say that he's boring or too vanilla, but he's so sweet and kind and really loved her. He even forgave her after she cheated with Big! I'm not saying Big doesn't love her, but he could never commit to her (but had no problem marrying Natasha). Aidan had one of the sweetest proposals I've ever seen, and he even changed that tacky pear shaped ring into one that was more suitable for her. I could go on for days about why I love Aidan!"
  • User redchick152's counterpoint: "Definitely Big. It's always been Big. Carrie and Aidan just didn't have the crazy, passionate, irrational chemistry that she and Big have together."

To see more arguments on the Big/Aidan issue, just


  • User Lampaaa: "Blah Blah Blah, yeah deffs Carrie will probably always end up with Big, But Aidan was alllllwaaayss better for her! GO AIDAN!"
  • User animatedpunk's counterpoint: "I chose Big . . . because Aidan is TOO GOOD for Carrie!! He deserves better. Carrie and Big deserve each other and work well together."
  • User Sarah1123: "Aidan because he was so dreamy. I hated her with Big . . . all they did for 3 seasons was fight. ANNOYing!"
  • User bohokitty's counterpoint : "Aidan bugs me too . . . I never really thought about why and I think it is 'cause he's just really good and really nice. Big has more of an edge to him (if that makes any sense). Carrie and Big just have better chemistry imo."

Tell me who you think wins this battle!

SERIOUSLY? This questions is really being asked, after years of watching the television show every sunday night and hoping thatthat BIG would get his sh*t together only to have him do so after the television show goes off the air and SATC becomes a movie....TEAM BIG!

Big is New York to Carrie--even if they have a bad day, it's always comes back to them in the end, and it's forever.

Can't believe this conversation is still going on! I liked Aidan - there was just something sinister/creepy about Big (of course the name didn't help!)

Aiden was married with a baby last time we saw him. Cant wait to see how they deal with that! I'm ok with Carrie possibly cheating on Big (b/c i dont think she'll do it) but I just dont think Aiden would cheat if he is married. That being said, it's Big for Carrie. It was always Big.

Oh man, everyone makes such good points! I think the ever-present Big/Carrie zsa zsa zsu always made me believe she was/is supposed to end up with Big, but boy was I excited to see Aidan in the SATC 2 preview! Some of my favorite episodes are from the Carrie/Aidan period and I can't wait to see what's in store. I just hope he doesn't end up heartbroken again!

aww, thanks for using my post Buzz!! :) i think Care summed it up perfectly too. Remember the ep when she was trying to get back with him? the miss-kiss? its just one of those things that you have to get out of your system for good before you can move on. i bet everything will lead into carrie cheating on big with aidan, but i don't think she will go through with it. carrie is kind of nutso in relationships, but big has always been a constant....besides her friends!

Carrie and Aidan just aren't right for eachother. Big & Carrie just have something. And it's true that Carrie was kind of a bitch to Aidan and he always put up with it. That cabin episode after her and Aidan got back together killed me. What kind of woman cheats on her committed boyfriend, then INVITES THE GUY SHE CHEATED ON HIM WITH TO HER BOYFRIEND'S FREAKIN' CABIN!? It was bitchy enough that Carrie demanded Aidan to accept her friendship with Big after she cheated on Aidan with him, but inviting him to his cabin?? Really? I was pretty much appalled at Carrie and Aidan's entire relationship. Aidan's a huge sweetheart, but him and Carrie have to be one of the worst matches. I don't get it when fans think they should be together.

I didn't like Carrie. Where do I fit in?

My fiance is watching the series for the first time and we just finished the season where Carrie and Aidan split for the 2nd/final time. As soon as the episode was done, he turned to me and said, "I hope that guy finds someone who deserves him. Carrie sucks." I asked him what he thought of Big, and he said he liked him too, "but neither of them deserve Carrie. She's toxic."

I 100% agree with animatedpunk - Carrie doesn't DESERVE to be with Aidan. She was horrible to him and they are just not compatible. I would be annoyed if she was with him because I adore Aidan and think Carrie is selfish. And I am all about the bad boy people, but Aidan is just plain SEXY. I think Big and Carrie have chemistry and belong together, but I don't know if Carrie will ever be happy with anyone for very long.

Aidan is the type that you marry and settle down with and start a family.... Carrie never seemed to want that sort of thing when she was with him. A lot of us have relationships that we move on from and you always wonder "what if" and when you run into that past fiance or boyfriend you can't help but think....maybe they changed...maybe things would be different...but in the end you realize there was a reason it ended.

Okay why is everyone always screaming for the bad boy? Aidan is the type of guy you grow old with and never doubt he is in love with you! Big is the type of guy who always has you on a rollercoaster of emotions. I would kill for a guy like Aidan.
