The first year my husband and I were together he bought me the box set of Sex and the City. Its a beauty in the pink velvet case. I loved it. I still love it. I have watched it countless times over and over, in sequence and in random order.
I overthink every show I watch. I can not help it. It must come naturally to me to overthink things as I watch them. Now before you read further yes I am aware I am speaking of a fictional show. These are my thoughts on it.
Watching it the other day something struck me. Why Big? What is so special about him? I mean really. Sure he has the money, but when you think about it, it took him 10 years to come around. 10 YEARS!!! How many of us women would have held on that long? I cant say many of us.
Team Big vs Team Aidan
From the moment Carrie met Big you could see he wasn't the right one. If he was interested in her he would have made a move. But instead he keeps bumping into her with other women on his arm. Even the night they went on their first date he brought a friend along. Red flags anyone. I think so.
Big brought out the worst in Carrie. She was always down when she was with him, anxious and sad. Begging for love from someone who was not ready to commit. Leaving to Paris without even discussing it with her? I mean, who does that? Obviously not the one you want to be with the rest of your life. She put herself last when she was with him. You know when you end up doing that in a relationship that you are putting too much in and the other is just taking. It never works. Do we all remember that he was married twice? That he cheated on his second wife WITH Carrie... I dont know about you, but I wouldnt want to start off a relationship with someone who cheated. Would they do it again? Seems to be the pattern.
Aidan, the classic sweetheart. He was a hopeless romantic from the start. Wanting to get to know Carrie, wanting to develop a relationship. He was genuinely sweet. There were no other girls to compete with there were no commitment issues. He was handy, cute and romantic. He WANTED to marry her, build a life with her. What more could a girl want?
I couldnt help but wonder ;)
Are women really attracted to the "bad boy"?
What is it about them that draws us in? Is it their wild nature that us as a woman believe we can tame? The excitement of the chase? I read somewhere that if you had everything you wanted you still would not be happy, for happiness is the result of working towards something and achieving it. You need that drive in your life to keep you going. Is this where she steered off course? Because lets face it, Aidan was the one. He was the perfect man. I was definately Team Aidan. He was sooo much cuter. Am I right or am I right?
If Carrie and Big were a real life couple, this would not end in a happily ever after. I dont believe for one second that he is the one for her. After 10 years of being put on the back burner in a relationship he changes?
The happily ever after was meant to be with Aidan.
The kiss in Abu Dhabi was the clincher.
He is the one!
What are your thoughts?
Are there Team Big's out there?
Have I missed something with Big that others havent?
