Aidan Shaw The story: Aidan was the gorgeous, manly hunk, who was good with his hands (take your minds out of the gutter ladies - he's a carpenter). Everyone kind of hoped he'd be the love of Carrie's life, until she blew it by sleeping with Big. Yeah, we know, how dumb? Pros: Aidan is the complete opposite of Big. He doesn't have a problem with committing to Carrie, he proposed to her while she freaked out in the TV series. Aidan was kind and attentive; acting calmly while Carrie often threw her dummy out of the pram. He even forgave Carrie for having an affair with Big. Cons: Aidan is a bit like a comfy pair of slippers. Easy and reliable but there just wasn't ever a spark there the way there was with Big. The two also fought like cat and dog, especially when they moved in together - bringing out the most annoying side to Carrie we think we've ever seen. Handbag.com's verdict: If Carrie doesn't want Aidan, we'll take him!
