So as I was walking back to my office after the 11am showing of the Sex and the City movie (shush it was a slow day at the office and the Georgetown movie theater is only a block away), after replaying some of the quotes in my head... I stopped in the middle of K Street to wonder...

Does Mr. Big have a Mr. Big?

For those of those who aren't familiar with Sex and the City and who the hell Mr. Big is, this will catch you up... Mr. Big meets Carrie (if you don't know who that is just skip to the next post) in the very first episode of the series and gets his nickname not because of anything sexual but because he is a wealthy business man on his way to being the next Donald Trump. After running into each other over and over again during the first few episodes the two begin a on and off relationship until the series finale six seasons later.

Mr. Big is totally emotionally unavailable and a commitment and intimacy phobe. And these issues cause several breakups and the start of several relationships in between their madness. But there is a chemistry and a love that brings the two back together time and time again.

So we know Mr. Big has his Carrie... his true love that seems to understand him and even when they lived on separate coasts their sexual chemistry seems to remain the unspoken storyline and their friendship never remains strictly platonic. To me Carrie seems to be that hopeless romantic that needs the love, attention, and protection that Big could give if he wasn't just always out of reach, but yet she seems to always be there ready when he will ever be.

So I wonder does or did Big have the one that he loved but was not ready or maybe just not able to be that one?

I don't know about loved but remember when he was with the movie actress and he came up 2 aidens cabin. And after him and aiden fought in the mud hr explained how "she can always reach me. But I can never get her". That's as close as Big got to being with somebody who was as emotionally unavailable as him

i think the question was more rhetorical than a question about the series itself... but i think it was a great question, gives you something to think about.
