Big was powerful because he had a lot of money and he seemed to have the upper hand in the relationship, but emotionally he was a wreck. One of the things I tell people is that he never tried to pretend he was anything other than what he was.It was [Carrie] who tried to pretend he was something he wasn’t.After further discussion he explained that he got that impression from watching American TV shows like Sex in the City and Desperate Housewives.
Despite his "whore" comment, Noth does make some interesting points: Carrie was a seriously flawed character.
He was always honest about himself — he never cheated on her. [laughs] There’s a misconception that Carrie was a victim of him, and that’s not the case — she was a strong, smart woman.... Hell, even Big is said to have had his fair share of conquests. The conversation gets even more confusing when he goes on to call Carrie a "strong, smart woman." Sounds like a compliment.
The relationship just didn’t work, and he went on to get married while she went on to … And yet, he's not talking about the way Carrie did her job or took care of her friends.
The following post is a guest post from Beth, who has been living in India for years. I’m not saying it was completely outside the realm of possibility, but his presumption, and approach to it, shocked me!
She’s dated Indian men and has a few tips to share for foreigner women dating Indian men here in India whether on their travels or if you are living here as an expat. I had only been on my first date in India for about 30 minutes, and already I was almost in tears and wanted to go home! A friend introduced to me to a nice looking Indian guy who asked me for my number. I’m single and Indian guys are hot, so I gave him my number. After taking a couple of calming breaths, I asked him what gave him the idea that I was going to have sex with him on our date.
