Aidan vs. Mr Big Sex and the City 2 2010-05-26 08:00:05

Big vs. Aidan — Who's More Your Type?

Carrie Bradshaw might have a hard time choosing between Mr. Big and Aidan Shaw, but I think the two leading men couldn't be more different. On the one hand you have confident, passionate, and mysterious Mr. Big who's always playing hard to get. And then there's Aidan, the type of guy who adores you and would never let you down, but might be a little too nice for some people's taste. While Big's unpredictability catches your attention, Aidan's sexy dedication could have more long-term appeal. If you were in Carrie's Manolos who would you choose — bigger than life Mr. Big or down to earth Aidan? You better make up your mind before the movie hits theaters tomorrow!

How easily people forget the long slow romance between Big & Carrie! :( Aidan was the one who copped out years before, if my memory serves me correctly. I'm staying w/ Mr. Big!

Big (dreamy sigh) adien is not tough enough. Too marshmellow-ish :raspberry:

Big, only because I would get bored with an Aidan, I think I would stop caring and just kind of roll right over him in everything because I know I can be a dictator if I don't have someone I perceive to be an equal (in attitude if nothing else), so an Aidan would never work out.

Uh, the kind that actually likes me enough to consistently date me and isn't scared of having to man up every once in a while. So Aiden

For me: Aidan, but for Carrie: Big

I always thought that Carrie is like 'Big' in Carrie-Aidan relationship. He obviously is into her more than she's into him. She's the one who 'withholds' and the more emotionally guarded in the relationship. While Big is, you know, the 'one' for Carrie because she seems to be more into him (especially in the shows--I saw how they have 'hot' chemistry or whatever, but yeah, when it comes to commitment-openness or relationship--Big is more closed off while Carrie was trying hard to get him to 'open up' to her). I guess when it all boils down to, it's pretty obvious that Carrie loves Big more than Aidan (as proven from shows and movies hehe, she did get married to him LOL).

Aiden is my type :) I can see the appeal of Big, but he would wear on my psyche.

Aidan seemed too in a rush to get married and settle down. Big is complex. And he makes you work for his affection like a cat. He's more interesting.

In the show I liked Big a lot lot better, mostly because Aiden was too relaxed and too country for me (and for Carrie). But in real life I'm not attracted to hard to get, unpredictable guys, I go more for Aidens. It was the whole handy man thing that I'm not so attracted to. I like intellectual guys, sort of like Big...

My own personality is way more compatible with an Aidan type, but Carrie is better with Big. Big definitely has that mysterious appeal, but I'd probably get really fed up with it after awhile. They're the ones that have the immediate appeal, but not the long-term appeal. I so agree with lilkimbo about Big & Carrie though. Aidan and Carrie never quite fit.

I'd like a mix of both. But, I would find Big more challenging to me, which would keep me interested.

In dreams, Big. But in real life? Give me an Aidan! :)

Apparently I'm one of the very few, but Big. It's not that Aidan is "too nice," I just find him kind of, well, boring. I also feel that Carrie and Big are more equals (in their relationship, not necessarily monetarily, etc.) than Carrie and Aidan. And, I would rather be an equal than have someone who loves me more than I love him.

Nice is nice. Aidan!

I don't really think Aidan was too nice. I'm sure he could get not nice if he wanted. And really, for the long run, nice is ... nice.

I guess I love a "fixer-uper"... I'm always attracted to kinda cold mysterious "Big" types, but I like to turn them into wonderful "Aiden" types... Something is wrong w/ me :)

Aidan. In fact, back in the day, I fancied myself a lot like Carrie, except I chose Aidan over Big. By the same token, my husband gave me a beautiful engagement ring, like the way Aidan gave Carrie.

Big is the stereotype for successful douchebag of the 00's. His ego is as big as his wallet. Never liked him.
