Who do you think Carrie Bradshaw should have ended up with?

We need to know.

TWENTY YEARS AND six seasons later, Carrie Bradshaw remains one of the most iconic female television characters of all time (for better and for worse).

Having dated almost 30 fellas across the series, Carrie eventually had to decide between two – Mr. Big and Aidan.


(I mean, you could also count  Jack Berger and Aleksandr Petrovsky. But feck them TBH).

Let’s plead the case for Mr. Big.

Fans either love or hate Mr. Big – AKA John James Preston - which is exactly how Carrie felt about Mr. Big throughout the series. Their romance was wonderful and terrible, amazing and heartbreaking and it pulled at our heartstrings for years.

On numerous occasions Mr. Big stuck his foot in his mouth, or pulled Carrie back in when she deserved happiness with someone else. (Selfish!) Even with his faults Carrie loved him. The two were alike in the fact that they were complicated, a little damaged and they knew they were bad for one another, but they just couldn’t Brokeback Mountain quit each other. Plus, they loved classy events and extravagant things which made for fancy dates and ensembles … Or lack thereof.

When it came down to it, Mr. Big did love Carrie – he just didn’t say it when it needed to be said. He did however, sweep her off her feet from time to time and was charming—a bit too charming.

The pair had chemistry, sure – but is that enough?!

Well, let’s see how Aidan stands up against him.

Aidan Shaw was … Perfect, right? Well, as perfect as one man can actually be. Aidan was everything that Mr. Big wasn’t, which is why Carrie had a tough time letting him go.

He was strong, rugged, handsome, selfless and crazy about her.



Carrie liked a challenge (the wagon) which is probably why they broke up in the end … But he was just so smitten with her. They meshed well together because they were opposites, but that also caused a lot of tension between them. Even though they fought and butted heads from time to time their love was pure.

In this economy though, I think I’d rather have a man who could potentially build a gaff for me TBH.

But what do YOU think? Who should Carrie have ended up with at the end of Sex And The City?

Poll Results:

Aidan all the way! (1371)
Mr. Big, defo! (1040)
Anyone would have been better than those two apes! (242)
